Miss Katie - owner
A singer and pianist since the age of 8, Katie Jeep’s greatest passion is the arts. Her mother and father enrolled Katie in music, dance, and art classes starting at a very early age. She continued piano lessons for 10 years and was involved in musical theatre and choir in school as a child and teenager. She went on to study Acting at the Theatre School at DePaul University in Chicago, then Classical Theatre and Voice at Webber Douglas Academy in London. During breaks from school, she taught singing and creative drama to little ones at summer camps and training programs in the US and UK. After graduation, she focused on her acting career in Chicago.
Along with some commercial and film work, she was involved in over 40 theatre productions all over the Chicagoland area and is a proud member of the Actors’ Equity Association. Though she was involved in many different types of productions, her favorite shows to be involved in were theatre productions performed for children and young audiences. Among her favorites were The Little Prince, Coyote and His Brothers, Green Eggs and Ham and Goodman Theatre’s production of A Christmas Carol. She has seen firsthand how exposing children to the arts, especially music and theater, enlivens their imaginations. Encouraging them to participate in song and dance gives them the key to unlock their creative expression and confidence.
“Our one year old son Thomas just adores all the vibrant colors in the facility and the excitement from all the kids and teachers. He has a great time in every class. We will continue to enroll him until he is too old."

“I find it so fun to get out of the house and be able to take BOTH of my kids to a class and let them learn, play and enjoy music. We are planning on booking Eli's 2nd birthday party at Musical Magic and cannot wait to plan the event with Miss Katie.
