Lessons – online

“Thank you so much for today’s lesson and the notes.  You explain it so clearly and it’s appreciated hugely.  With love and enormous thanks for everything”.

Charlotte Barber

Catherine is known for her deeply intuitive approach to her education and community work which is well-grounded in research and over twenty-five years of practical experience.

Her diverse and adaptive skill set which enables Catherine to tailor her teaching to the needs of her pupils and bring out the best in their playing.

Choice is very important for a musician in finding their own personal interpretation of the music they are playing.  In order to have that choice you have to know what your options are.  I work with all kinds of instrumentalists helping them develop their musical palette and expressive capacity.  I help people to find the joy and delight in detailed practice that brings a freedom, flexibility and confidence in performance while honouring and supporting each individual in finding their unique musical voice.




As well as regular lessons you are welcome to contact Catherine for tuition on a specific piece or for help navigating a particularly tricky corner of a piece you’re working on.

Please note that the majority of Catherine’s availability for giving lessons is during the UK daytime Mon-Fri although it may be possible for her to accommodate occasional lessons outside of those times.

This might be:

  • guidance on playing the barefoot piano prayers / praying at the piano more broadly.
  • exploring the therapeutic and healing use of music in your own life.
  • help with learning a specific piece or navigating a particularly tricky corner. If so, please give details of the piece / section / aspect you would like to focus on.
  • exploring repertoire.
  • developing my musicality and interpretation skills.
  • it might simply be ‘I’ve always wanted to learn to play the piano’

or something completely different.

Thank you
