About Catherine B.
Having trained at the Royal Northern College of Music Cathy became a professional, performing musician on violin in the Orchestra of Opera North (now 50% job since Sept 2021) and also has over 30 years experience of teaching privately.
Although classically trained she loves playing and teaching all sorts of music.
Whether it 's Disney, film music,Bach, Shostakovich Elton John,Coldplay or Adele.....Cathy also now helps pupils through piano/keyboard Rock school exams if required.
It equally doesn't matter if you don’t wish to do exams although Cathy is able to teach from beginner to diploma level on both violin and piano for ABRSM or Trinity exams.
She believes in treating each pupil as the individual they clearly are.
However most of her pupils who do enter for exams achieve merit or distinction standard. Her latest success is a piano pupil who was awarded 90/100 marks for Grade 7 Trinity exam. She teaches the ABRSM syllabus too.
Cathy currently has a violin pupil in the Leeds Youth orchestra.
She teaches theory as part of the lessons as it is integral to a balanced learning process as a musician.
She encourages players to have a natural posture when playing as this helps avoid back pain and difficulties in performing.
And it must be fun!
