Katrina has a broad musical background. For many years has been an active teacher in a variety of roles.
Katrina’s professional musical training began at Nottingham Trent University where she obtained a BA (Hons) degree in Contemporary Arts (Music and Performance).
Katrina has worked in many secondary schools and with the Nottinghamshire Arts Support Service in England, consequently gaining valuable teaching experience. She taught children and adults of all ages, as individuals and in groups.
As an instrumental peripatetic teacher, Katrina organised performances for various events and school concerts. For younger students, Katrina often introduced musical games to her instrumental lessons. These help to create a fun and creative learning environment.
Nervous exam students were reassured and given the confidence they needed because of Katrina’s natural ability to set them at ease. Often she would accompany them on the piano thereby boosting their confidence.
With a naturally positive and lively personality, Katrina’s students are encouraged through her enthusiasm as a teacher. She embraces every opportunity to try new teaching initiatives.
