Katie - Central Manchester - French horn

Methodology

I am an experienced french horn teacher based in central Manchester. I studied Music at Cambridge University and now teach piano and french horn, from beginners to advanced, ages 8+.

I teach students at my home in Manchester. At the moment, I am teaching online via Zoom.

I am available Mon - Fri (9am - 7pm) and Saturday mornings.

I teach ages 6+, from beginner to advanced.

I prepare students for ABRSM music exams from grade 1 - 8.

I believe in positive encouragement in order to help my students achieve success. I teach music grounded in a good knowledge of theory and technique.

Experience

I teach piano and french horn on part time basis to all ages - from beginners to advanced. Since university I have built up the number of students that I teach to around 30 currently.

I regularly freelance and play regularly with the Lancashire Artillery Band (Army Reserve band).

I have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate.

I studied Music at Cambridge University, where I studied with Roger Parker, a renowned operatic musicologist and writer. I studied french horn with Bob Ashworth (principal horn, Opera North) and performed for two years with the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain.

I am a member of the Musicians Union and ISM.

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.
