Kathleen Gallagher took her first music lesson when she was 5. Her frantic pummeling of the pianola pedals led to its early demise, and a shiny silver flute soon captured her attention. Someone asked, “What are you going to do when you grow up little girl?” She knew the answer immediately. “Play the flute!”
Today, she is a creative musician, pedagogue, flutist and sound artist. She is classically trained, a specialist in the contemporary flute and exotic sound objects including toy pianos and flower pots. Research interests include Musicianship in the 21st Century, Music learning theory, Collaborative composition and Performance Art.
Her formal education is documented by a Bachelor of Music, and a Masters of Performance, both from the Sydney Conservatorium at the University of Sydney. She also holds a Doctorate of Musical Arts from The University of California San Diego, where she majored in both Performance and Pedagogy while Lecturing in Musicianship and Contemporary Studies. Her informal education began when she started to teach.
