Hi everyone! My name is Katarina. I am a fellow Croatian. I studied at Music Academy in Zagreb and have a Master's degree in piano as well as one year of Postgraduate artistic training in piano. I give piano lessons to all ages and levels. My techniques and methods are based on individual needs.

Perfect! Really helpful with ideas to build up technique. The lesson was student centred and inspiring.
I strongly think that she has huge potential for this job becouse she was always hardworking and dedicated to what she was doing, especially when it comes to piano playing and teaching.
Katarina is a beautiful, sincere and unique person. As her colleague, I can say that she is an exceptionally talented, expressive and sentimental pianist. As her friend I can say that she is truly one of a kind, a faithful and confidential friend for a lifetime. I've been watching her work with both, younger and older students and as a teacher, she is considerate, patient, scrupulous and creative. Her classes are never boring, and she is very beloved among the students. After all, she is a mother herself, a wonderful, caring mother to her son and there is no doubt that she'll be treating her students like her own child. I recommend Katarina to anyone who is willing to learn and work in pleasant atmosphere.
Excellent teacher, professional, lot of knowledge
Katarina is THE best Teacher who worked with me in Croatia and I have only good recommendations for her. She is also a special person
Katarina is an excellent professor and has brilliant playing skills. First of all, she is a very nice and calm person. She is patient in working with students, has an individual approach and dedicates to each student according their abilities and needs. She always strives to achieve a pleasant working atmosphere. She feels the music very emotionally. If you want piano playing skills and music emotions both in your life, Katarina is the best person with whom you will achieve that.
