Katherine has always been passionate about music. From a young age, she was singing and playing a variety of instruments, including the piano and clarinet, giving her the opportunity to take part in music festivals, and perform in prestigious venues across Europe, including Snape Maltings and Salzburg Cathedral. At secondary school she spent every spare moment engaged in some musical activity. During her BA in Music with German at Lancaster University, Katherine was very involved in the music society, including conducting the wind band, and she spent a year abroad teaching at a music school and helping in class music lessons at a secondary school. 

Katherine has been a piano and singing teacher for the last ten years, sharing her love of music with others. She also holds the position of pianist / organist at Tilehurst URC and accompanies their singing group in services, as well as playing for baptisms, weddings and funerals. Katherine has recently done some conducting work with choirs and regularly takes warm ups and sectional rehearsals. This is something she is keen to develop further!
