Perfect! A skilled hornist who bases lessons on the right technique. A positive pedagogical style and never forgets that we are doing this for fun.
Andrew is a great student. He's a good listener and I enjoy teaching him.
I have been having French horn lessons with Katie for almost 2 years, and as an adult learner, have found Katie to be extremely patient and creative in ways to help me learn. She has helped me with both my theory and my practical skills, and presents information in a way that I can understand.
Katie works in a collaborative way, as she encourages me to come up with my light bulb moments, which I feel has helped in my learning process.
I've been learning the piano with Katie for about 9 months now. She keeps the lessons fun and I feel like I've achieved something every week.
I've been learning with Katie for a few months now. She's been great at helping me learning chords so I can play my favourite songs properly. She is really easy to get on with and I’m excited for my Next lesson. I highly recommend her.
Best piano teacher in Manchester! Professional, caring and goes at my pace. I would definitely recommend.
