I am an enthusiastic and extremely passionate music teacher. I work hard to inspire my pupils and strive to teach them to see how their musicality can enrich many aspects of their lives. Not only do I take great pleasure in encouraging my pupils who have a natural aptitude and musical skill along a career path in music, but I also relish inspiring all pupils to enjoy their music studies. I help them to realise music is something which will enhance their lives and is a contrast to their academic studies; I enable them to see music as a wonderful way to relax, have fun and to develop emotionally and socially, giving them a skill and interest they can enjoy all their lives. I particularly enjoy teaching younger pupils as I have a rich repertoire of musical games which I love incorporating into my lessons.

My MA in Music Education was particularly fulfilling as it helped me to hone and mature the teaching skills I had previously developed. I gained insight into different learning and teaching styles and techniques, good pedagogical practice in a multitude of situations and the understanding of professional ethics and my obligations as a teacher. All these aspects help me to understand what is relevant and professional in a range of pedagogic contexts.

“Katie has an excellent balance of always pushing me forward and challenging me with my playing combined with a relaxed, approachable attitude that helps me learn from my mistakes and feel comfortable in lessons.”
Claire, 29 – Saxophone Pupil
