Congratulations to Kathy Anderson,
winner of the 2015 ORMTA Pedagogy Award!


Kathy Anderson, 2015 ORMTA Pedagogy Award Recipient

A self-described life-long learner, Kathy Anderson grew up in Keswick, Ontario, started piano lessons at the age of eight and studied with Mary Lou Stanton in Newmarket as a teenager. Kathy began a twenty-six year career as a medical secretary at the former York County Hospital (now Southlake), got married, had two beautiful children and it wasn’t long before her passion for music education led her to begin building a private music studio.

Kathy has always strongly believed in continuing professional development for teachers and would return to Mary Lou for lessons at every opportunity. She continued to build her pedagogy knowledge through available workshops and seminars, always sharing the new ideas and information with her students. Kathy had the opportunity to connect with Debra Wanless and began an exciting new phase of studies with her. She has recently completed the Primary/Elementary and Licentiate diplomas in Piano Pedagogy through the Northern Lights Canadian National Conservatory of Music and is continuing Junior Fellowship studies in piano pedagogy.

Kathy is thrilled to have been asked to join the Board of Examiners for CNCM. She entertains seniors bi-weekly at the local retirement home in Keswick and is music director at Ravenshoe United Church where she directs a choir of twenty-five enthusiastic adults and organizes summer music camps for children. Kathy continues to teach children and adults and is always happy to host Composer and Kids sessions in her studio. Kathy is excited by this award and shares it with her very supportive husband John and her friend and mentor Debbie. Thank you for this honour.
