Kathy Franklin (B.M. and M.M., University of Kentucky) teaches piano and violin. I am a member of Phi Beta Kappa (our country’s oldest scholastic honorary society) and Pi Kappa Lambda (the national music honorary society). I held a teaching assistantship at U.K. and taught undergraduate music theory courses for two years. From 1971-1976 I played violin with the Lexington Philharmonic Orchestra. I worked as a violin section coach with the Central Kentucky Youth Symphony Orchestra from 1976-1978. I was the accompanist for the NKU Children’s Preparatory Choir from its inception in 1994 through 1999. I accompanied for the pre-professional ballet program at U.C.’s College Conservatory of Music from 1998 through 2004. In addition to my work with school-age children and adults, I taught Kindermusik classes for very young children from 1999 to 2009.
In addition to my background as a musician, I am an experienced parent and parent educator. I was a volunteer with La Leche League for 13 years and ran a cooperative preschool when my eldest child was young. I was a very active PTA mom for many years. I have two daughters who are active in the arts. Jenny is a trombonist and Emily is a dancer/singer/actor based in NYC.
