Catherine first came to Austin to study piano and voice with choral emphasis with Dr. Betty Mallard and Dr. Suzanne Pence at the University of Texas and received her Bachelor of Arts in Music. She toured through North America as a song writer and publisher along side fellow bandmates in Zykos and has enjoyed recording with music producers Mike McCarthy and James Vollentine for artists such as Spoon, Craig Finn, The Dead Confederate and …and you will know us by the tail of dead.
Catherine is the Director of Education for Capital Music Center where students of all ages are helped to find their voice with music. As a frequent Clinician for the Roland Corporation she travels throughout the US to share her experiences and knowledge about the Roland digital pianos. When at home she finds great inspiration in singing under conductor, musical director, and Grammy Award winner Dr. Craig Hella Johnson in Conspirare. She thrives from all the inspiration drawn from all walks of life who cross her path, always with intentions to honor her gifts and experiences.
