Caitlyn has been teaching private piano lessons since 2008 when she quit her full-time job because she couldn’t handle its non-musical nature anymore! After helping to establish a thriving music school in Chicago’s Lincoln Square neighborhood, she relocated to Kalamazoo in 2011 to pursue a masters degree in Music Therapy. As a board-certified music therapist, Caitlyn works contractually and privately in Kalamazoo, primarily with at-risk children and families and with seniors in memory care. In addition to private lessons and therapy, Caitlyn is a certified Music Together teacher and a Music Together Within Therapy provider. When not playing an instrument, Caitlyn can be found on her bike, in the woods, or singing to the plants in her garden.
