Hello! I’m Katie Wardrobe. I’m a qualified teacher, but have decided to dedicate my time to teaching teachers! My full-time “gig” is running my own training/coaching business called Midnight Music which offers online courses, lesson plans, tutorials and workshops. I’m passionate about helping music teachers integrate technology into their classrooms in creative and meaningful ways.
