SOUND EXPERIENCE
ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

A lifelong musician, artist, writer and creator with an interest in healing modalities and spirituality, I use my gifts, talents, knowledge and experience to offer opportunities for insight, stress relief and healing to others.

The first time I heard and played an Ocean Drum back in 1996, I was smitten. Then a couple years later there was this new thing at a Music Therapy Conference called a Crystal Singing Bowl and my mind was blown! It was the coolest thing I’d ever heard and I wanted every person who passed by to hear it. Now, over 20 years later, I get to share that love with others offering Sound Journeys using my favorite instruments for health and wellness.

I earned my Music Therapy degree and certification as a single mom of a beautiful 8 year old daughter in 1999. Soon after I earned NYS certification to teach Music K-12. I provided Music Therapy and taught music in a public school for 5 years, then ran a business offering services to a local preschool while also giving Private Piano and Guitar lessons. I left the preschool when my son was born in 2006 and continued to offer music lessons. I discovered passions for photography and jewelry making. I became a Wilton Certified Cake Decorating teacher and ran a business offering cake decorating lessons for a few years. Around that time I discovered Stand Up Paddleboarding.

I first tried SUP here in Mattituck in the summer of 2013. Since then I’ve explored every creek in the Peconic Bay from Orient to Riverhead, Flanders to Springs. My goal is to explore every waterway on Long Island! I paddle every chance I get no matter the season, knowing it will improve my strength, balance, and sense of well being.

That time I fell in the Peconic River, Fall 2019 (pun intended!)

CERTIFIED FLATWATER INSTRUCTOR

I’m a “multi-passionate creative”. When I’m not out on the water, you can find me writing, reading, researching, or learning something new. I might be singing and playing piano, guitar or my super-cool new dulcimer, or perhaps my singing bowls and tuning forks. I also enjoy taking photos of the beauty that surrounds me. I could also be at home gardening or caring for my son, husband and cat, Luna. Or perhaps creating something like a cake, floral arrangement or painting – my current love is paint pouring! In addition to Stand Up Paddleboarding, I also love biking and playing tennis, as well as practicing yoga!

    Hello! I am the director of Stony Brook University’s employee wellness program, Healthier U. I’m interested in having a singing bowl session on campus. Is that something you would be interested in facilitating? Thank you for considering!
    Regards,
    Cathrine
