My name is Kathleen Clay and I LOVE music! I have been teaching music at Saints Philip and James since 2006.  Previously I taught music in Maryland.  I am also a private lesson teacher, teaching piano and beginning band instruments.
     I am originally from Canton, OH but lived for many years in Lusby, Maryland.  I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Music with a teacher’s certification at St. Mary’s College of Maryland in 1996.   I have taken post graduate courses at Western Maryland College, Kent State, Walsh, and Malone.  In addition to my passion for music, I enjoy water sports, such as waterskiing, snow sports, such as snowskiing and tubing, concerts, reading and travel.
