Teaching others is something Kate has always been passionate about and was probably instilled by her mother, also a recorder teacher! Her first experience of this was coaching mixed-ability recorder ensembles in school and now Kate has a wide range of teaching work – teaching one-to-one, tutoring for the National Youth Recorder Orchestra, school workshops for recorder students, and in 2018 being appointed Ensembles Tutor for the Birmingham Schools Recorder Orchestra and Birmingham Schools Recorder Sinfonia.
Recent teaching highlights have included representing the Birmingham Services for Education at Music for Youth (Royal Albert Hall) and Symphony Hall Birmingham, as well as travelling to Madrid to deliver a workshop to 30 pharmaceutical employees as part of a corporate commission. OTD’s director, Andy Crotty, said: “We’re delighted that Kate accepted our invitation to join us in Madrid and cannot praise her highly enough for the enthusiasm and professionalism in which she delivered the music workshop.” Full article here: Midlands Business News
Kate is happy to hear from prospective pupils of all ages and abilities and will tailor lessons to suit individual interests, whether that is for fun and enjoyment, or to prepare for graded exams. If pupils wish to take exams, Kate has experience of the ABRSM and Trinity Guildhall exam procedures. While her personal interests are in the fields of early music and contemporary music, Kate believes it is important to work with pupils on a wide range of styles and build a solid foundation for technique.
Kate offers lessons for pupils of any age – Recorder from beginner to Grade 8+, and Violin from beginner to Grade 5. Fully DBS checked.
