Welcome to the Roncalli Band Department!

Band Director - Kathy Peach

Kathy Peach

Kathy Peach is in her 36th year as a Band director and has spent the last 23 years as Director of Bands at Roncalli. A graduate of Columbus North High School and Butler University, Kathy has also taught in the Indianapolis Public Schools, Eastern Hancock Junior-Senior High School and at Scecina Memorial High School. In 1989, she received an appointment to start an instrumental music education program at Sam Sharpe Teachers College, just outside of Montego Bay, Jamaica. As a result of that year in Jamaica, the Roncalli Band now travels every other year to Montego Bay, performing in concerts and bringing school supplies, instruments, music, clothing and other donations to students at two elementary schools, seven high schools, and to the Montego Bay Boys and Girls Club. 

In 1994, Kathy was honored as the person who most influenced Academic All-Star, Valedictorian, and Roncalli Band member Kevin Finn. In 1996, Kathy was the Roncalli Teacher of the Year and a semi-finalist for the State Teacher of the Year. In 1997, she earned the Prelude Awards Teacher of the Year Award. 

Kathy’s goal as a teacher is “to motivate my students to achieve great things, to inspire them to be good citizens of the world, to create an environment where faith is present each and every day, to show my students that prayer is powerful, and to instill in each student a great love and appreciation for music that will last throughout their lives.”
