Katie Higgins Flute Teacher Newcastle NSW
Learning the flute provides exciting and fulfilling opportunities that develop self esteem, personal growth and creativity. Students grow in confidence and develop patience and perseverence when mastering an instrument. These are life skills which are valuable in many other contexts.
I have been teaching the Flute to students from four years to adults for more than twenty years. I am passionate about music education and I love creating a positive atmosphere for learning to take place. I believe that all students possess musical talent and I strive to nurture this talent and build on it in a very positive and enjoyable way
I have post graduate qualifications in Music and Education, and I use current research, resources, and teaching techniques to ensure your child is receiving the best music education possible. Lessons are structured to make the most of the innate musical talent of all students, regardless of their playing experience.
Learning and playing an instrument hugely enhances brain development and learning in a way that very few other activities have been shown to do.
Katie gave me direction and confidence in completing my HSC Music 2 exams. She always gives me positive constructive feedback that I can use to improve my performance.
Her teaching style is both engaging and supportive while challenging me to perform at my best. Katie thoroughly prepares for all our lessons together and I know each lesson builds me as a musician.'
