Kate Kohler has lived her life in Montana. Born and raised in Great Falls, she moved to Bozeman and decided to stay. Her first solo album, elusive victory, is a reflection of her love of music and her respect for love, life and death. Currently she resides with several furry family members and makes use of her time teaching others the joy of music and writing more of her own. She has played the piano and sung for as long as she can remember, which makes sense, since her entire family is musically inclined. Her training encompasses composition and piano. Her teachers include Laurel Yost, Eric Funk, Daniel Moore, her mother Marjorie Kohler, and her father, the late John Kohler. They taught her many life lessons as well as the joy of sharing and creating music. Her performance experience includes jazz, classical, musical theater, improvisational musical theater and pop/rock/funk. She has performed with many talented musicians including: Mark Dixon, Johnnie Corrie, Brad Edwards, Angela Funk, Eric Funk, Craig Hall, Rob Kohler, Lee Kohler, Marjorie Kohler, Geno Kreis, Cheri Ladd, Ivy Merriot, John Mest, Alex Safford, Nancy Weiss, and M.J. Williams. Her compositions include many works including: 5 Solo piano works, 7 KidSongs - ensemble pieces for student piano and solo instrument, 5 Preludes for Piano, Prelude for Ansa for 2 Pianos, and Song for Strings and Brass Choir, 2 violin, viola, cello, and brass choir.
