Studios on the Square

…create a professional and positive setting where music lessons, classes and events are offered to the community at large by a collective of musician teachers dedicated to quality…

Kathy Fernan teaches piano at the studios.  As a private piano instructor for more than 25 years, Kathy brings a wealth of teaching strategies that she uses to encourage her players. She holds undergraduate as well as graduate degrees in music education from Ithaca College, with emphasis in piano.  Kathy's students range in age from elementary children to adults, truly enjoying their lessons with her. 

Kathy has been actively involved in the local community as a music teacher with the Elmira City Schools, where she taught elementary classroom music. She also has served as church organist and choir director. 

Mary Kathryn says, "I met Kathy in a previous studio setting and was always so impressed by the consistent gains her students made.  I was extremely happy when she decided to join us!"

Kathy believes that with consistent playing and a love for music, you can become a player who really enjoys the sound of the piano and have the pride that comes from mastering musical skill!
