Ms. Katherine Filatov
Hi! I'm Ms. Filatov and I am the Band Director at Blue Mountain Middle School. This is my second year at BMMS and I am very excited to work with such amazing students to make music!
Many years ago, I started playing the clarinet and I fell in love with band. Since then I have not stopped learning about music or playing music. I have Bachelors degrees from Ithaca College in Music Education and Clarinet Performance and am recieving my Masters in Music Education from Boston University. I am very excited to teach my students about the many aspects and perspecitves of music through the practice and performance of our band music.
Outside of my classroom, I enjoy running, reading and watching movies. My favorite band piece is the First Suite in Eb by Gustav Holst, my favorite band is Lake Street Dive, my favorite book is A Man Called Ove, and my favorite TV Show is The Office!
