Cat joined the SF Music Together team in September 2019. She grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and began playing piano when she was six years old. She also plays trombone and euphonium (it’s like a small tuba), and has been teaching privately for ten years. She earned her Bachelor’s in Music and Certificate in Instrumental Music Education from Johns Hopkins University in 2017, after which she moved to the UK to study and teach. She completed her Master’s in Musicology at King’s College London in 2019, specializing in opera and feminist analyses of classical music. In her spare time, Cat loves baking, being outdoors, and walking dogs for the SPCA. She also writes reviews for San Francisco Classical Voice, which you can read here.
