Music Creativity Coaching

Private coaching in composition. One-offs, or ongoing. I can help you with a current project, or get you started on a new creation. I am a pianist, but have written and arranged music for just about all Western instruments in a wide variety of styles - instrumental, song, choral, orchestral.

Teacher's Bio: KATE MOODY - Statement I was the girl who went straight to the piano to play if there was one in the room, whose mother never had to remind her to practice. I began writing songs in my teens, and music has been springing forth ever since. I find solace and inspiration in the natural world, with my students, and in the art of galleries and museums; I feel called to interpret and share those experiences as music. As a composer and performer, I aspire to Sahridaya: "Hridaya is heart. Sahridaya means same-hearted, or possessed of heart, or having the consent of the heart...Abhinavagupta (10th century Kashmir philosopher) says that the open audience has an elevated capacity for wonder: 'Indeed, when he hears sweet songs, when he is no longer content with staying in the middle and being indifferent, when a vibration starts in his heart, then it is called the power of bliss and this man becomes the same-hearted one.' This vibration in the heart is the aesthetic response. The heart of the artist opens, the audience opens, and both relish the experience. Then at that very moment, the same-hearted audience becomes one with the artist, and becomes as great.” -Swami Shankarananda, "Consciousness is Everything." As a music teacher, my goal is to support the unique spark in each individual while helping to develop his or her knowledge and enhancing their appreciation of music and musicians.
