Clarinet, Piano, Recorder, Viola, Violin Music Teacher and Accompanist
Katrina is a teacher of Violin, Piano/Keyboard, Viola and Recorder. She is also a specialist in Suzuki method for young children. Katrina has taught music to children and adults since 1991. For younger beginners, she offers the Suzuki Method, where children learn to play before learning to read music. Katrina holds the Primary Accreditation for teaching Suzuki violin and piano. She offers classes for babies and toddlers, involving songs and rhymes. Students learning Suzuki or traditional methods also have the option of taking AMEB or other exams if desired. Katrina's approach to teaching an instrument involves step-by-step learning, ear training and developing correct technique from the early stages. Music reading is also emphasised for all students, with older beginners starting reading from the beginning. Parental involvement (attending lessons and helping with home practice) is encouraged, especially with younger students.
