My name is Catherine also known as Cat by friends and family.I have been playing the clarinet now for 18years which I started off with lessons at primary school. Between then and now I have achieved grade 7 ABRSM practical, and grade 5 ABRSM music theory and toured around France with the South Somerset Jazz Band.I have also been playing the piano for 18years and I am currently working towards my grade 8 practical examination, hoping to take this year.I took up the Oboe and was self taught passing grade 3 ABRSM practical examination with a merit which I was very pleased about. Since taking up the oboe I have also toured around Italy as a VIP with the South Somerset Youth Orchestra with my oboe.

I have also played at weddings playing a selection of songs through choice and requests of the bride and groom.

It has always been my dream to become a private instrumental teacher and pass my skills onto others so that they can experience the same enjoyment from music that I do.

Now that I am looking to finally start my career I have completed a business start up course delivered by Bridgwater college which I passed. And I came across back her business 2020.

What a great opportunity for me to give my business idea a good kick start and make a real success of it. I plan on using the grant money to set up a studio where I can hold my private instrumental lessons and band practises with all my pupils. A safe, welcoming place for pupils to come and learn. And where their parents will feel comfortable with them being. Also a great deal of marketing will need to be done to attract new pupils to the business to get it rolling, so some of the grant money will go towards this too. I would love to get a new piano and refurb it to use as a selling point for potential customers to want to come and learn to play on such a funky and fun instrument, turning learning into a positive and fun experience.

This is such a great opportunity for me to bring my dream job into reality.
