About Your Teacher

Katherine Rogers

Flute Teacher and Performer

Kathy recently moved back to her hometown of Victoria after having lived in Brighton, England for the past 6 years. She is the mother of two young children and loves having her 4-year-old try out all of her newest Kinderflute activities! With almost 20 years of both flute teaching and classroom teaching experience, Kathy's flute studio is a wonderfully diverse and lively place to learn and play. She teaches students from as young as 4 years of age all the way up to grandparents. 

Kathy is also a contributing member of FlutePlay, a team of international flute teachers with a passion for teaching the littlest learners. FlutePlay's shop currently features two of her colourful creations: the Flutie Frog Prince and Play & Colour Through the Year

Favourite Things
