'Katie is a helpful, supportive teacher who gives clear explanations and positive feedback when teaching.' Josie (Student)
'Throughout the four years in which my daughter has been attending flute lessons with Katie, I have found her to be an excellent teacher.
It is wonderful to see the progress that my daughter has made due to Katie's professionalism and expertise.'
: My teaching career began more than twenty years ago, when I started teaching in my own studio and privately in several schools. Since then I have taught in many schools in Victoria and NSW and at the Newcastle Conservatorium of Music. I completed a Bachelor of Music Performance with Honours and a Bachelor of Arts at The University of Melbourne, where I trained with leading flute teachers. I have enjoyed performing both in Australia and overseas with the Australian Youth Orchestra, the Melbourne University Orchestra and several other leading ensembles.
I am a qualified and registered classroom teacher and I also teach French and Music to Primary and Secondary Students. I enjoy keeping up to date with pedagogical research around how students learn most effectively, and I use this knowledge every day in my teaching practice.
I believe that students learn best and can achieve their goals in an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment.
I teach beginners using the Suzuki Method and as students progress they may also choose to undertake AMEB Exams. My students gain excellent results in exams and assessments. More information on my teaching methods is available here:
