Katie Bickford received her BM from Ithaca College, where she majored in piano and choral conducting. She loves listening to and attending concerts of all genres and believes in getting a “well-rounded” ear. (She also has an insatiable love of hip-hop and rap!) Katie has worked with numerous composers and has premiered musicals, chamber works, trios, and solo pieces. She also does a lot of arranging, specifically for choral settings, and tries to write “edgy” choral arrangements. Katie has an energetic, enthusiastic, and supportive teaching style and works well with students of all ages. She also loves the outdoors, especially hiking and kayaking!
