More About Katie (and her music)
Katie Brock is a children's musician from West Vancouver, BC. Locals may know her from early childhood music classes for Westside Music Together at the Gleneagles Community Centre; or from performances at birthday parties and community events all across the North Shore. Katie is also known as “Ginger” from the children’s entertainment duo “Ginger and Snap”.
Katie delights in performing for children. She thrives on seeing their little faces light up with the joy of music!
Katie has a vast tool box of ways to play with music and make it fun and accessible for children and families. She is well-versed in encouraging children to get involved, participate musically and stay engaged while she sings.
Her boundless energy, sense of humour, and catchy up-beat songs inspire children and grown ups alike to sing, dance and laugh out loud.
Katie’s welcoming and inclusive nature makes everyone feel part of the music making fun whether she is performing at a small birthday party, on a big stage at a community event, on YouTube or on one of her group Musical Walks at a local park.
Katie is a firm believer that the ability to sing and make music is everyone’s birthright.
Immersing young children in enthusiastic community music-making can go a long way in fostering their music development. Exposing the very young to the joys of singing, dancing and making music with simple instruments can lead babies and children to want to play with music themselves. Children develop an ease with using their voices to sing, their bodies to dance and instruments to play that stays with them their entire lives. What a gift! Katie believes her purpose is to spread her infectious love of music with families everywhere.
Katie continues to evolve her work. During the pandemic Katie developed a program called “Musical Walks with Katie Brock” where she leads families on a musical adventure in nature while interweaving song, rhythm, movement and dance. “Musical Walks” have become a new favourite activity that families enjoy, pandemic or not! You can now register for Musical Walks as well as Katie's imaginative and engaging indoor family music classes through the West Van Community Centre. Click here for more info.

Katie lives with her family in beautiful Horseshoe Bay, BC. When she is not singing you can find her trail running in the amazing forest paths in her hood, skiing down one of the local mountains or swimming in the ocean! Or she may be shopping at Costco trying to keep enough food in the house to feed four teenagers! She also loves singing with her choir Pandora’s Vox.
Katie can’t wait to share her music with you and your family!!
