About Kathryn

Hi! I'm Kathryn Finch. I am currently a K-5 general music teacher at Meadowbrook School in Northbrook, IL. Recently, I became a co-creator of the #BlairFinchProject, certified in all 3 levels of Orff Schulwerk, an Apple Teacher, and I serve as a technology leader in my school district.


It was a pleasure to be a guest on the Music Ed Mentor Podcast on empowering music students.  In fact, I enjoy sharing my passion for empowering students in the general music classroom by presenting at the local, state, and international levels.


A new exciting adventure has been the opportunity to join the team at Activate! Magazine as a contributing author of general music lesson plans. A recently published work, Creating Adaptive Instruments with a Makey Makey can be found in the Fall 2019 issue of the Illinois Music Educator Journal.


I hold a bachelor’s degree in music education from Augustana College and a master’s degree in music education from VanderCook College of Music.
