Bass Guitar Teacher Katie Schmitt

Katie Schmitt Bass Guitar Teacher

atie Schmitt was born in Plano Texas and has lived in Flower Mound for most of her life. She watched as the town developed and became the beautiful, safe and fun town we know today- which also means she saw the School of Rock Flower Mound location being built. She may have had no prior knowledge of the concept of "School of Rock", but with her being a bored 15 year old wanting a creative outlet, (and conveniently owning a bass guitar that her dad impulse-purchased one Christmas) she signed herself up for the program right as they were opening their doors back in 2013. Katie was swept away by how fun and interactive the program was, and she continued to improve her skills there as a bassist. The program was so helpful to her as not only a musician but a person, she learned how to be more confident and interact with others and even got the courage to begin singing and drumming. Towards the end of Katie's time as a student, she auditioned for their first house band ever to take place and took one of the 2 bass positions. After she was too old to continue the normal performance program, she continued to play music there with the Adult Band for a year before she was offered a position as an instructor. Even now, Katie knows there's still loads to learn in music and as an instructor and she's always trying to find ways to improve and adapt so she can help others have an amazing experience like the one she has had.

Outside of School of rock, Katie, in her school days was an alto saxophone player, and occasionally would fiddle around on her piano as well as teaching herself to sing when no one was home to hear. Katie has been writing music of her own since she was a teenager, but never actually saw herself pursuing music until picking up the bass at School of Rock. Nowadays she records albums at home, playing all the instruments herself, and is constantly writing new songs because she believes creating songs is like therapy to her. Katie often says some variation of: "Music is healing, that's why I love teaching at School of Rock. I get to help others heal and grow as musicians and as people."

Reviews

It's our home away from home!

The music coaches are amazing, extremely knowledgeable and genuinely care about all of their students. My boys have learned so much. They feel accepted and like they can play with the best of them.

We trust them completely!

In just a short period of time we've seen incredible growth in our daughter's abilities and her confidence. The staff are incredible and there's no doubt in their skill or their devotion to the kids.

Life skills on and off stage.

My son has found his place at School of Rock. He has moved beyond a kid who didn't want to perform in public to a confident preteen who looks forward to being on stage and can play through a song even if there's a misstep.

School of Rock stands out.

I am absolutely amazed at what my daughters are doing at School of Rock. Listening to my girls practice is awesome, and the fact that they want to practice daily is what really shows the difference between this program and others.

The teacher did a great job working remotely with the students.

My son took the online songwriting class. He LOVED it. I was concerned that he wouldn't like being online from 9am-3pm. But the teacher did a great job working remotely with them. It's challenging to meet the needs of a diverse group of teens but he kept everyone coming back.
