I have been teaching over 15 years (privately and as a public school orchestra director for elementary, middle and high school), and performed in Carnegie Hall, New York City, Toronto, Canada, Washington D.C., New Orleans, Lousiana, and finally Atlanta, Georgia. My performances have included playing with Hilary Hahn (classical), fiddle (Skin Alley), and hip-hop with Rodney Lamar Page. I am growing my studios with more and more students. I currently have about 60 students weekly. If you are interested in having you or your child take lessons please contact me via: katherynpearsall@yahoo.com or infinitystringsstudio@yahoo.com. My youngest student was 2 and my oldest is currently 73 years.
