WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Alex, 14 year old pupil

Cathy is an encouraging and supportive teacher who has helped me immensely with my grade 5 music theory preparation. Even though my lessons were online, I felt fully included in the lessons and the interactions and explanations really helped.

Joe, 12 year old pupil

I enjoyed my theory lessons because I felt included when I was giving my answers and wasn't discouraged if I got them wrong.

Sophia, 15 year old pupil

Cathy made the lessons fun which helped me to remember everything. She didn't spend  too long on one thing, so I could choose what to work on outside of lessons.
