About Katie C.

*Please note, due to limited availability I am currently only free during weekday mornings and early afternoons*

Katie is based in Huddersfield and has been teaching for 20 years. Her skills enable her to quickly demonstrate and teach music to students by ear, standard notation, or whatever approach the student feels most comfortable in. With her background of classical training and touring with rock bands, Katie has a wide variety of experience in performing. She is friendly and patient, with a passion for all things musical!

Katie's priority as a teacher is to put the student first in terms of the music they are interested in, and alter her teaching approach to suit each individual, whatever their needs may be. The lesson is all about the student; what they want to achieve be it grading or personal goals, or simply to enjoy playing music for the love of it ! Katie has tutored many students over the years for music exams, with the boards ABRSM and ROCKSCHOOL, with a 100% pass rate, with theory of music offered also.

Katie is skilled at arranging music, so that any piece of music the student wishes to learn can be adapted to a suitable level. The most important aspect is to start playing the music that you, the student enjoy!

Katie specialises in Classical, but can teach pop, rock , blues and metal also. Katie has a strong interest in crossing over musical styles (guitar rock/metal to the piano, rock music etc. ) This can be very exciting and interesting, learning your favourite song on an instrument you didn't think it could work upon ! Film music, Jingles, Gaming music and your favourite T.V. programmes all have a wealth of music to draw upon !

First Lesson
A first lesson will typically be a chat with the student, to find out about their goals and preferred musical tastes. Dependant on the student's experience, we would then look at simple warm ups and becoming accustomed to the new instrument at a basic level. Owning your own instrument will be necessary after the first lesson for practice purposes.

A lesson for beginners will involve a chat, getting to know what the student wants to learn and a demonstration of easy warm ups. It does not matter what level you are at, it is totally normal to be unsure at first. I am very happy to answer any questions you may have!
