Cathrine is a graduate of Canterbury College, University of Kent, with an honours degree in Music and Education. In her professional career, she has taught in a variety of schools around the UK including Cumbria, Devon and Kent. She has extensive experience in teaching pupils from the age of two to eighteen years. Nothing gives her greater pleasure than teaching music and making a difference in the musical lives of young and older children alike. It was whilst she was in Devon that she was invited to teach in a preparatory school, and it was here that she discovered her love for teaching toddlers and young children. When she was in Kent, she was asked to teach music therapy in a music hub. She found this to be a huge and highly rewarding privilege; one which has left a lasting effect on how she approaches music with children of all abilities.
Cathrine derives great fulfilment when she is working with choirs and instrumental ensembles and she relishes any opportunity to provide experiences for students to perform in public and with live musicians. She is delighted to be joining the team at NAISNY, and looks forward to the exciting opportunities, which lie ahead of her in New York.
