Katie is based near Putney and Wimbledon, South West London, and loves her work as a teacher and educator. Following maternity leave, she now has a private teaching practice (which moved online during the coronavirus pandemic), and is also a community singing facilitator for Find Your Voice, where she has worked with groups of young children, and with stroke survivors.
Katie believes that every pupil requires an individual tailored approach to learning singing, as no two people have the same motivations and way of thinking. Her mission is to above all instil a love of singing and music-making for whatever repertoire at whatever stage of vocal development. Katie enjoys teaching a wide age range (8 up to retired), and a wide variety of styles: classical, music theatre, folk and pop.
Beginning with building up her teaching work from home in Oxford in 2014, Katie's teaching practice grew to include posts at Wychwood School and D'Overbroek's School in Oxford as a peripatetic singing teacher (2014-18). In 2015-16 she also co-led a community singing group at the Ark T centre, Oxford.
As part of her MMus Vocal Performance at Birmingham Conservatoire, in 2016-17 Katie undertook a Pedagogy Module and placements with Birmingham Music Service, passing it with Distinction. She is a member of both the Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM) and the Association of Teachers of Singing (AOTOS).
Now in London, Katie also participates in much community music making locally, creating a weekly online children's music session for St Paul's Parkside church, and she is part of the Songs on Wheels choir who bring music into care settings. This has continued creatively online throughout 2020!
