Everyone's learning style is different, so I carefully tailor my lessons to best suit each individual's plans and ambitions. My lessons are fun and interactive, and strive for the highest quality and best results. I have had many years of experience teaching violin, and have taught complete beginners to those completing their final music exams.
I am a confident and experienced violin teacher, currently in my fourth year studying at trinity conservatoire. I started learning the violin at the age of 7 at the north London conservatoire, where I later spent two year working as an orchestral teaching assistant for the younger children and discovered my love for teaching. During my studies I have several modules in instrumental teaching in which I have learnt so much about teaching children in a holistic and well-rounded way. I have also visited primary schools around Greenwich and Lewisham, where I conducted music workshops and assemblies for the students there.
I believe that learning an instrument is a gift one carries for life, and that it is never too early or too late to start. I aim to make my lessons fun and engaging, yet I am driven to help my students reach the highest of standards. My students are always my number one priority, and i will give them everything i can to help them succeed.
I am happy to teach people of any age and ability, and will tailor my lessons to the individual. I can teach both ABRSM and Trinity to grade 8 standard.
I also teach GCSE music which I adore!
Perfect! Katherine is an incredible musician and teacher. I returned to playing the violin after a long hiatus and she eased me back in perfectly whilst setting new goals and challenges. My confidence in playing has developed so much in a short space of time thanks to her encouragement and expertise. Each lesson is fun, well structured and tailored to the individual. Fabulous all around - I cannot recommend her enough!
Had 3 lessons so far, and I have thoroughly enjoyed them. Look forward to the next one
Katherine is a phenomenal musician, and hard-working and dedicated teacher. Her lessons are always well structured and engaging. She is clearly a very passionate teacher, and that come across in the lessons, which have really inspired my daughter to work hard at the violin. She has recently achieved a distinction in her grade 4, which is remarkable when I think back to where she was before starting with Katherine. I could not recommend her highly enough!
Katherine has been a very professional tutor for my son's GCSE music. He was really struggling when we started with her during the summer before year 11, and then after much work he achieved a grade 8. We were over the moon. Thank you to Katherine for being such a reliable tutor and pushing my son to achieve when nobody else believed he could. She worked him very hard, and we are so thankful.
