Katherine Peters

Musician | Teacher | Composer

We are created in God’s image, and as such, have a measure of His creative ability. When we make music, we are—in our own small way—reflecting that first act of creation.

Katherine Peters graduated with a degree in music education from the University of South Florida in Tampa.  She has worked in schools as a band director, and has also taught choir and general music.  She now runs private studios in northern Indianapolis.  Her students are regularly placed in top ensembles in their schools and in honor bands.  She is also independently contracted by band programs to teach clarinet and saxophone classes.  In addition to recognitions for her teaching, Katherine is a published composer/arranger.   Katherine is an actively practicing musician and appears with wind ensembles, orchestras, and the occasional pit orchestra around Indianapolis.  She also enjoys collaborating with colleagues to present chamber music concerts.
