Information About Kitty - Clapham teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Kitty:
I am a freshly graduated Actor, so I am bubbly and confident. Having spent my school career taking part in orchestras and choirs around the UK, touring around Europe, I now use these skills on stage alongside my acting. I have worked on plays which required interacting with young children, so feel I have the skills to communicate with young beginners as well as those interested in exploring a new avenue later on in life. I am 23 years old, with 19 years of musical training, having started with Piano, then Violin and moving onto Singing, Flute, Recorder and every so often bashing out tunes on the Ukulele and Guitar. I've experienced the falling in love with music and also the strains of keeping the fire of music alive within myself - so feel its important to make sure everyones journey is full of inspiration and enjoyment! I encourage open communication and will always strive to make sure I am giving my students the musical experience they need and hope for.
I have helped people rediscover their connection to music, after they have taken a few years out of practicing, and have always enjoyed being a point of call when friends and family need odd tips here and there when preparing a song or musical performance. I worked with my classmates, at university, to put together musical numbers for shows and led the singing classes on my course. I have also worked with a young children's opera company, helping to enhance them vocally and be a supporter when they required extra help while preparing for their performances.
I feel music should be enjoyed and not feel like a slog. Every student is an individual and I would want to carve every musical journey to their personal needs, initially focussing on technique, so the student has a strong ground work and sense of musicianship, which will make their experience easier down the line. In the singing classes I would work on breath and support and then draw on some fun classics to start off with, and then through getting to know the student, I would focus on different genres of music to suit their voices. In the Violin classes, I would start by getting the student comfortable with their instrument, making sure they have strong form and confidence when reading music. There might be a bit of repetition at the beginning, while everyone gets comfortable within themselves and their chosen instrument, but I believe once the ground work is instilled within us, then the fun can begin!
