Ms. Kate DeMonica

Hello! I am excited to begin my second year as the band director for both Fulton and Carriel Junior High Schools. I conduct the 6-8th grade bands, our 5th grade beginning band, and our D90 Symphonic Winds Honor Band.


I am originally from the western suburbs of Chicago and attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I was a member of the Marching Illini and Illinois Wind Symphony. Because of my incredible experiences in band and the educators I worked with, I was able to march in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, perform at Lincoln Center in New York City twice, perform in Dublin, Ireland, and make many lifelong memories and friends.


I look forward to providing diverse performance and personal experiences through band so that D90 students can gain an appreciation for music and the teamwork and dedication that comes along with it.
