Kathy Musat has been teaching trumpet and low brass for 50 years to students of all ages. She is a graduate of Baldwin Wallace University (Bachelor of Music Education) and the College of Mt. St. Joseph on the Ohio in Cincinnati (Master of Science in Education). She taught music in the Parma City Schools for over 30 years and retired in 2004. She performs regularly with the Parma Symphony Orchestra, the Hermit Club Orchestra, the St. Charles Brass Quintet, and the Baldwin Wallace Alumni Jazz Orchestra. Her teaching philosophy is technically based but inclusive of history and literature appropriate to the student and a little fun added on the side. When not teaching, she dabbles in photography and caring for her grandchildren. She has been married 40 years to musician John G. Musat and has three wonderful children and four grandchildren.
