Mechanics of Music was created when Kaitlin, a Mechanical Engineer, decided to leave her job working for an aerospace engineering company in Toronto, move to the west coast and start teaching music. Mechanics of Music Studios offers private, 1:1 lessons for guitar, ukulele, piano, and bass. We offer summer camps, workshops and a variety of online lessons. Some of these include Rock Star Camp, Ukulele Camp, & Ukulele Jams.

Hi! My name is Kaitlin.
Hi! My name is Kaitlin.

Back in 2015, I  quit my job as a mechanical engineer to pursue my passion for music. Since then, I have been on a mission to entertain, teach and inspire music where ever I go!

I have studied singing & songwriting, music production and technology, and most recently, music therapy.

I play in a folk-rock band (Cat Murphy Band) that performs all over the lower mainland ¬†(or at least we did before all social gathering was banned…)! I have hosted open mic nights, Rock Star & Ukulele Camps, and taught a whole bunch of 1:1 and group music lessons. I play a little bit of everything but my main instruments are guitar, ukulele, piano, and voice. My students have been as young as 4 years old and as old as 84! You are never too old or too young to be inspired!
