Traditional Irish Music
We are slowly building up our Irish Music Teacher resource centre on the site and today we have added our first US based teacher. Katie Geringer began studying the violin at the age of 6 and developed an interest in Irish and folk music while in high school. She remained active in the folk and Irish music scene in Tallahassee, Florida while simultaneously earning a bachelor’s degree in Instrumental Music Education and a Certificate in Violin Performance as well as teaching middle orchestra for three years.
Her musical versatility is demonstrated each summer as a staff member of the Florida State University Summer Music Camps where she leads the advanced fiddle ensemble and coaches violin sectionals and chamber music.
Her passion for Irish music led her to earn a masters degree with First Class Honors in Irish Traditional Music Performance at the University of Limerick in Ireland in 2014/15. While at UL, she regularly played in sessions in southwest Ireland and studied with Siobhan Peoples and Eileen O’Brien as well as many other notable Irish musicians. In 2015, she received 1st Place in the Senior Division of the Limerick County Fleadh.
