Katie Cone is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Golden, Colorado. She began playing piano at the age of five, and added violin at nine. She became first chair violinist throughout her schooling, played in her church orchestra, and took private lessons. She competed and earned all superior marks in the Colorado State Solo and Ensemble contest with violin. While in high school, she picked up ukulele, guitar, cello, and guitalele. Katie began singing and songwriting throughout high school, and realized how much she enjoyed performing. She began playing and singing at conferences, weddings, and church events. Katie attended the University of Colorado Denver, and graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Music with an Emphasis in Singing and Songwriting.
Realizing a passion for teaching as a senior in high school, she began teaching privately and has been doing so for six years. She teaches violin, piano, and voice along with music theory and songwriting classes. Katie has taught students as early as three years of age to adults 70+. As a teacher, she strives in helping students reach their goals by shaping lessons according to each unique individual. She focuses on sight-reading, technique, ear training, and musicality. She believes music lessons should pave the way towards confidence in performing, knowing technique, and bettering one’s overall musical knowledge – yet also be fun!
When she is not teaching, Katie continues to create music and advance her singer-songwriter career. She has had the privilege of writing and working with top songwriters and producers in Nashville, and is currently working on an EP.
