Personal Description:

Freelance multi-instrumentalist and music teacher based in Sheffield with over 10 years experience teaching experience.

I am a professional musician who plays solo as well as in a number of bands and groups across different genres, specialising in folk and traditional music. I have an MA in Ethnomusicology from the University of Sheffield, giving me a really thorough grounding in a variety of music and performance styles, to complement the classical training and knowledge of music theory gained from my BA in Music from the University of Leeds.

Tutoring Experience:

I am experienced in teaching my instruments across all levels and experience, with students ranging from age 5 to 70+! I currently teach woodwind for Leeds City Council's music service (Artforms), both one-to-one and in group lessons with adults, teenagers and younger children. I also provide piano and guitar lessons in primary schools with Sheffield-based social enterprise Link Learning. I have taught private music lessons for over 10 years, both in person and online. I also have experience of leading workshop-style group lessons, such as for Leeds University Folk Society.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a dynamic and versatile tutor, and above all else, I aim to inspire confidence and nurture a real love for music in my students. In my lessons I take a flexible and creative approach. I centre my teaching around the interests and goals of my students, whilst also providing them with a thorough grounding in the tools they need to be able to really enjoy playing their instrument and feel themselves making progress.

"I have been taking saxophone lessons with Katy for a year, in person and remotely. Her lessons are structured and focused but also fun, and tailored to what I need to work on each week. Her resources are interesting and varied, covering theory and technique, and music ranging from baroque to jazz. I feel I have made great progress this year, and would highly recommend Katy as a tutor." - Gill M.
