My main principle for teaching is to inspire students to grow as musicians in an effortless way and give them a boost of motivation to learn music in a friendly, fun and highly productive atmosphere.
I can teach students who want to become future musicians and take ABRSM exams or those who just want to develop a new skill, appreciate or enjoy the beauty of music.
I have a Master's degree in Music Performance and teaching qualifications. I have been teaching privately for five years giving lessons to small children, teenagers and adults. I have also taught chamber music and flute in schools.
I have prepared some of my students for exams and competitions, and I have organised many concerts where all my students
could perform solo or in chamber formats.

Chamber music teacher
During two years and a half of teaching in a music school, I worked with pupils aged 6-16 years old, preparing them for national exams (100% passing rate), concerts and competitions. I taught students individually twice a week. Also, I led chamber music classes once a week for flute duets and flute orchestra. I was often accompanying students on the piano. After a year of work as a trainee teacher, I completed the national exam and I qualified as a contract teacher.
Piano/ Flute/ Music tutor
I taught children privately helping them excel in their results in national school exams and competitions. I created a positive and fully engaging atmosphere and I equipped students with fundamental skills of flute technique and general music theory.

Katherine is a fantastic teacher, she is
very patient and passionate about the flute. My daughters have learned so much since starting lessons with Katherine and I would recommend her for anyone looking for solid, enjoyable music education and anyone willing to work hard for amazing results
Katherine and I we organised many concerts together. She's 100% professional at work and a really loose person after work.
I know she is always excited about teaching and cares a lot of her pupils.
Extremely patient, flexible teacher explaining things clearly and in an intetesting way. Very nice atmosphere, couldn't recommend her more !
Katherine is passionate about music and extremaly skillful. In addition, she's simply a very kind, warm and patient person. This means you'll not only attend professional and inspiring tutoring classes but it will also be surrounded with a great atmosphere.
i have known Katherine as a housemate and house guest for a few years now and can sincerely recommend her for any position she has chosen to pursue. Of her many attributes I would suggest her extraordinary diligence, empathy, determination and drive will stand her in good stead as well as an enviable knowledge of music in general as well as her abilities as a flautist. My honest suggestion would be to grab her with both hands and you'll never look back.
Katherine is a great tutor. She is pleasant, very knowledgeable and always very prepared. Any student would be lucky to have her as a tutor.
