Our owner, Kathleen Odom, has been teaching piano since 1978. In 2012, she opened Keys & Strings at Magnolia Ave in Port Neches to give the gift of music back to her community through lessons, performances, and instrument sales. Due to continued growth, she needed a larger facility, so in September 2015, she relocated to our current location at 1309 Port Neches Ave!
Kathleen simply lives music. She received a Bachelor of Arts in music from Lamar University with an emphasis on piano and cello and went on to obtain a Master of Music in cello performance.
Her extensive experience includes being a full-time minister of music at Acts II Ministries in Beaumont as well as the string class instructor at Bob Hope Charter School in Port Arthur. Additionally, she teaches class piano at Lamar University and is the principal cellist in the Lamar University Civic Orchestra.For more information about Kathleen, or the lessons she offers, give us a call today!
