Comprehensive Cello Lessons with Professional Teacher

With over 15 years experience, I have taught some 10,000 hours of one-to-one instrumental lessons. I have taught over 100 individual students ranging in age from four to 75+; from beginners to diploma-level, both amateurs and professionals.
Whether you have a child at the start of their musical journey, are an adult beginner or returning to music after a break, I can guide each student in the most effective and efficient way to reach the full potential.

I gained a Bachelor of Music degree from City of Basel Music Academy in Switzerland and Master of Music degree from the University of Music & Performing Arts Stuttgart in Germany, graduating with the highest honours for both degrees. I successfully finished my Postgraduate Artist Diploma studies at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance.

About Me

I was born in South Korea and spent my childhood in Saudi Arabia and New Zealand. I first started learning piano at the age of five. I have fond memories of great lessons with inspiring teachers growing up shaping my creativity and musical understanding.
I am committed to aspiring students the same way I have experienced. I have taught students as young as four to adults. I love working with students of all levels and have also given cello classes at Amadeo Roldan Conservatory of Music in Havana, Cuba.
I attended Purcell School before moving to Germany where I studied for my Diploma. I gained a Bachelor of Music degree from the City of Basel Music Academy in Switzerland and a Master of Music degree from the University of Music & Performing Arts Stuttgart in Germany, graduating with the highest honors for both degrees. I successfully finished my Postgraduate Artist Diploma studies at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance.
I perform in prestigious venues including the Wigmore Hall, St James's Piccadilly, St Martin-in-the-Fields, National Portrait Gallery, King’s Place, the Royal Opera House, and the South Bank Centre. I regularly participate and perform in many other international music festivals all over the world. Catherine plays a wide range of repertoire, including classical, jazz, Latin & pop. My session works include recording at the Abbey Road Studios and RAK Studio London.
Having close ties to my Korean heritage, I have played in the Embassy Series at St Martin-in-the-Fields supported by the South Korean Embassy, Korean Music Festival in London as well as organizing fundraising concerts for European Alliance for Human Rights in North Korea.
My performing style, which follows a mix of German, Russian and French traditions, has been crafted by studying with many of today's leading cellists including Gustav Rivinius, Ivan Monighetti, Elena Cheah, Leonid Gorokhov, and Ulrich Voss. Further artistic development came from participating in masterclasses with highly acclaimed artists including David Geringas, Thomas Demenga, Ralph Kirshbaum, Eduard Brunner, Frans Helmerson, Matias de Oliveira Pinto, Walter Grimmer, Trolls Svane, Maria Kliegel, Stefan Litwin, and Zvi Carmeli. I have also been a selected musician for the Concordia Foundation and Music in Hospitals.

Hello and welcome to my music studio! It is absolutely fabulous that you are interested in music, and I hope you have lots and lots of fun with it!

If you like to sing, we can also work on the basics of jazz/pop vocal, so you can learn to accompany yourself at the piano. In our lessons, technique will be an inherent part of the training, as well as analysis, basic music theory, and efficient ways of practicing music. If that all sounds good to you, then please reach out to me and we can start ASAP! Lessons can be in English or Dutch. So who am I? In a nutshell, I am a professional pianist, vocalist, lyricist and blogger. Since 2014, I have taught in various music schools, teaching piano, ensemble, jazz vocal, and solfege. On a more elaborate note, I obtained my Master of Arts in classical piano, summa cum laude, at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent (KASK) in 2017, and studied as a Fulbrighter at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in Bloomington USA during the 2019-2020 academic year.
