Welcome to Music!
Engage, educate, and empower children through music.

Kate Hagen is a General Music Educator at the Iowa City Community Schools District with over 18 years of teaching experience. She earned her license in Music Therapy from the University of Iowa and Masters of Music Education from the University of Northern Iowa. She has also spent many summers studying a variety of music teaching methods, including Kodály, World Music Drumming, and has successfully completed Levels I, II, and III of Orff-Schulwerk.

My purpose as a Music Educator is to help my students become life long music makers and music consumers. My hope is that by exposing my students to a variety of musical experiences that one of these modalities will resonate with them and inspire them to continue their musical journey, whether that is as a professional musician, supporter of the arts, or simply give them the confidence to sing Happy Birthday in a group.
