Fun and professional violin teacher, with over 10 years teaching experience and first class degree! Fulham - London

Methodology

My methods of teaching depends on the students personality and ability, often incorporating games into the lessons with students often wondering how they finished so quickly! I like to create a fun environment for musical development where questions are encouraged, and all students are taught how to teach themselves and apply techniques learnt in the lesson to the practice room.

I put a strong emphasis on note-reading from the very beginning as this is key to learning any instrument, and my experience is the earlier it's learnt the faster and easier it is.
I am also very 'hot' on posture - the violin is not a very natural instrument to play in terms of positions held and movement, therefore it is very important to make sure posture is correct to prevent any possible injuries and make it as easy as possible for yourself!

I am just as happy to help students prepare for grades as I am helping them progress without them, the main thing is that music should be fun and not a chore!

Experience

I have been playing the violin and piano for over 20 years now, graduating in 2015 from the Royal College of Music with a first class bachelors degree, and currently finishing an Advanced Diploma in Performance at the Royal Academy of Music, and hope to start a PhD in September. I have performed extensively all over the UK as soloist, most notably as a strings finalist on BBC young musician of the year and at the Battle Proms concert series to audiences of up to 12,000. I've also delved into the Folk world a little and was on tv for the BBC radio 2 folk awards as part of Jim Moray's band!

I first started teaching as a private assistant to Professor Berent Korfker (Royal College of Music) at Just 18, coaching his younger students from the Purcell School and alike. During this time I helped students prepare GCSE and A level practical exams, auditions for music colleges, and I even travelled abroad to an international competition coaching students in prof Korfker's absence.

Working with such talented children inspired and excited me to develop my own class with a more mixed ability. My current class range from complete beginners to well into their grades, with a huge age range of 4 -50! I have a 100% pass rate in all students exams taken - whether that be ABRSM grades or music college auditions.

Katy has shown great understanding and patience with a sensitive child ensuring she feels reassured every step of the way towards achieving her piano Grades. Even now with temporary zoom lessons, Katy manages to keep the momentum up through her enthusiasm and praise. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

Katy is a fantastic piano (and violin) teacher. Not only is she an accomplished and professional musician she is a skilled teacher. Her lessons are warm and friendly and is able to teach any standard, providing gentle yet clear instructions on how to improve. My daughter, who has been studying with Katy for a number of years, thoroughly enjoys her lessons and has shown much improvement and growth. I highly recommend Katy.

Katherine

Katy started teaching my son piano when he was 5 years old - he’s now 8 and loves his piano lessons with her. They laugh their way through lessons and he has made great progress. Due to the pandemic we’ve moved to online lessons - but the transition has been smooth and successful. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone interested in learning piano or violin - she is great!

Katy has been teaching my son violin & piano for almost 5 years now. She is very lovely positive and patient and brings out the best in him - I recommend her highly to teach a child of any age including difficult teenagers!

Katy is a great piano teacher. She has a wonderful manner and is very encouraging and able to get the best out of my 11 year old son. She has taught him both face to face pre covid and online during the covid pandemic. The online lessons have continued to be excellent and I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a piano teacher.
