Kate Rice is the owner and operator of the Geelong/Bellarine/Surf Coast franchise. Music has been a major part of Kate’s life for as long as she can remember. Learning classical piano from the age of 7, she then went on to study a range of modern styles and still plays weekly as part of her church music team. During her teen years, Kate actively participated in her school’s music program, singing in choirs and playing the clarinet in the school concert band and orchestra. Kate is also a qualified primary school teacher and during her studies she specialised in drama. Now, as a mother, Kate loves seeing the way her two small children respond to music of all kinds. She is excited to be running Mini Maestros in Geelong and the surrounding region as it allows her to combine her two passions: music and teaching.
