Hi :) Thanks for stopping by.....my name's Katie Marie. I'm a multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter originally from the UK but I now live in Austin, TX.
I've been touring, writing and recording music for over 20 years and have been lucky enough to work with many talented bands and artists including Phil Gould (Level42), Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul and Mary), Martin Barre (Jethro Tull), Isha Erskine (Grammy award winning engineer), Bluehouse, Disappear Fear and many more.
I also write and record my own music have released 4 albums, all of which were recorded in my own studio. For each of these I wrote all the music and played all the instruments / vocal parts myself. Recently I've been working on material for film and TV and have had my songs used in many mainstream BBC TV shows including Ordinary Lies, The A-Word and Cucumber.
I'm proud to be endorsed by Takamine guitars, Schlagwerk Percussion, L R Baggs and Logarhythm. I road tested the CT4-DX pre-amp for Takamine and Roland asked me to review their VR3 audio/video mixer.
I have been teaching for the past 10 years and truly love sharing my knowledge and love for music with others.
If you live in Austin, TX you may well have seen me performing with any of these wonderful people: Carrie Elkin, Ginger Leigh, Rebecca Loebe, Raina Rose, Susan Arbuckle and NagaValli. I also teach 3 classes at Mandy Rowden's awesome Girl Guitar school in Austin.
If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch! :)
Katie Marie is a very talented multi-instrumentalist who also happens to be a great singer-songwriter. Katie has played on some of my work and, apart from being one of the most talented, is also one of the nicest people I’ve had the pleasure to work with” – Phil Gould, Level42 (drummer, songwriter, producer)
“”Interdisciplinarity” means in science, the use of approaches, ways of thinking or methods from various disciplines. A perfect example of this being transferred to the music world would be British musician Katie Marie: she sings, plays guitar, piano, bass and drums. A perfect one-woman band” – Akustik Gitarre Magazine (www.akustik-gitarre.com)

I'm super patient and very easy to work with.
I believe lessons should be informative but most of all - FUN! I totally adore music, it's been my everything for more than half my lifetime and I equally enjoy sharing my knowledge with others who will hopefully become inspired to make their own musical journeys.
I always get to know the person I'm teaching first so I can then create a lesson plan around what YOU want to learn.
So you tell me and I'll make it happen :)
