About Audrey Horowitz
Audrey Horowitz, née Kaltenbach, is a pianist and collaborative artist residing in Longmont, Colorado. She has taught beginning to early advanced piano at Dana V Music since 2016. Her first piano lesson was at the age of 7 in the studio of Cindy Peterson-Peart in Beaverton, Oregon. She received her Bachelor of Music with honors in Piano Performance from Willamette University in 2015 under Dr. Anita King.
Audrey believes the most important part of lessons is the relationship built between her and her students. She strives for a balance of student driven lessons with building a strong foundation of staff reading, rhythm reading, theory, history and music appreciation. Her favorite part of lessons is getting to know her individual student’s musical goals, interests, and learning style. She loves getting creative with students and eliciting musicianship through harmonic analysis, imagery, and storytelling. Audrey is a dedicated teacher beyond music and has worked in the St. Vrain School District as a Special Education Paraprofessional since 2019. She is experienced, comfortable, and patient working with students with neurodivergences and learning disabilities.
She is an active collaborative artist working with singers and enjoys playing piano duets with colleagues and students. She has performed in master classes adjudicated by Dr. Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Joy Roe, Dr. Alejandro Cremaschi, Elizabeth Schumann, Dr. Larry Graham, Dr. Lei Wang, Dr. John Perry, Marcia Hadjimarkos and Dr. Arnaldo Cohen. Audrey’s love of history extends to historical instruments and has participated in master classes for the harpsichord, piano-forte, and clavichord. While at university, she was a finalist in the 2015 Willamette University Concerto/Aria Competition and performed the first movement of Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A Minor in concert. For over 4 years, she performed weekly service music for First United Methodist Church of Lafayette and is proud to have recorded over 100 pieces during remote services.
When not teaching Audrey enjoys cooking, sewing her own clothing, and exploring the beautiful Colorado outdoors.
