We are now teaching in person and online!
Katie’s Music Studio is excited to announce that we are able to open the studio again! Yay! In person lessons will start with a very small amount of families and teachers as part of our gradual plan to slowly reopen again. Interactions will be very limited. We are following protocols recommended by medical professionals and are doing our very best to make sure the studio is a safe and comfortable place for our students. We still encourage students to take online lessons as this is the safest option. Unfortunately singing lessons are prohibited at this time.
Please contact us to see which teachers are doing in person lessons at the moment.
Our goal is to create a safe environment for everyone and try to keep lessons as “normal” and positive as possible.
WHO IS KATIE?
Katie Korfmann is the founder and teacher at Katie’s Music Studio. At the age of 15, she was extremely passionate about music and was already performing professionally in the music industry. Because of the need for music teachers in Brantford, specifically fiddle teachers, she started teaching out of a home studio at her parents house during high school. After high school she purchased her own home where she began to grow the studio. Her home was getting too busy with three teachers, so expanding to a bigger space was the next step. In August 2019, Katie was able to move into a beautiful commercial building on Brant Ave. in Brantford, Ontario. Although Katie’s name is the face of the business, she has an amazing team of teachers that work along side her to help create a wonderful studio family!
Here at Katie’s Music Studio we pride ourselves in having kind, patient, and knowledgeable music teachers that help our students succeed while having fun! Our teachers are trained in different curriculums including the Royal Conservatory of Music and Suzuki Method, but are also well versed in many different genres including; classical, pop, rock, folk, musical theatre and more. As well as private lessons, our group classes teach students how to play together and it is also a place for them to meet new friends with the same interests. Performing is a big part of our studio philosophy and we love to guide students through learning music performance and even create their own professional show if that is their musical path. We want to help our students LOVE music and can adapt our teaching methods to each individual child!
To encourage our younger students, we have a prize board in our waiting area where students can earn points during each lesson. When the lesson is done, they can choose a sticker for their hard work that day. After they reach 10 points, they are welcome to pick a prize.

OUR STUDIO SPACE
Our newly renovated studio has four teaching rooms, a waiting room, coat room with hot drinks and water, and a washroom for our clients to use. One of our teaching rooms also has a stage! This is a great experience for students as they can practice performing in a comfortable space. We keep our beautiful facility clean by making sure we are disinfecting properly to do our part in keeping everyone healthy. No need to work about parking as the there is lots of spaces at the back of the studio.
Twice a year, the studio hosts a concert that encourages students to show off their progress. We also bring students out to different events in the community throughout the year. To prepare for upcoming shows. A full PA system (microphones, speakers, monitors etc..) and lights are set up on our stage at the studio so students can get the full experience of playing live.

MUSIC AND THE BRAIN
Learning to play an instrument is not just beneficial for progressing musically, but it gives our students the tools to learn better discipline, dedication, and teamwork skills for their future ahead! Music is one of the only activities that activates, stimulates and uses the ENTIRE brain. Amazing! This is why music is such a crucial role in brain development at many stages in life.
