Information About Catherine - Beckenham teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Catherine:
I am a passionate piano teacher with 19 years' experience. I value the relationship I have with each of my pupils and invest heavily in their overall well-being. Children can not learn when they are not happy, so that is my key objective. Music and playing instruments should be fun and should help to develop children into well-rounded individuals who take responsibility and are able to work with focus without seeking instant gratification. Communication with parents is also a priority for me and I have always had positive relationships with all my pupils' parents. We are both on the same team to ensure that your daughter or son is thriving.
19 Years piano teaching experience, including 8 years' classroom Music teaching, and 5 years' Head of Music
Master in Music (Pedagogy)
Master in Educational Practice
ABRSM and Trinity Examinations
I prefer to take on a holistic approach to teaching Music where the child is not just pushed relentlessly through the grade system. I want all my pupils to love what they do, but also to build skills in composition, aural, sight reading, improvisation, theory and general musical knowledge. All my pupils do take ABRSM examinations, however, and all have achieved at least a Merit for these examinations, with many being ranked as Top Achievers.
