Ella has loved her theory lessons, and has made impressive progress in a short period of time. Catherine managed to make the sessions relevant and engaging, and Ella particularly enjoyed the longer workshops during school holidays.

I found Catherine straight after lockdown and from the very first moment I felt I had found the right teacher for me. She understood perfectly what I wanted and adapted the flute lessons to my needs. She is an excellent musician and professional with lots of experience that will make you enjoy and improve from day one. She is teaching my daughter (8 yo) as well and her methodology is excellent. My daughter attends every week happily and her progression is incredible in such little time. I can truly recommend Catherine without a doubt.

We would highly recommend Catherine Whitehouse to you as flute teacher for your children. Catherine is passionate about music and this is evident in her enthusiastic teaching. Our son has minor learning difficulties and she is exceedingly patient with him, encouraging and motivating him and she gets the very best out of him. Our son looks forward to his weekly music lessons with her which is really positive. We just want our son to do something he enjoys and is proud of and Catherine has definitely helped him make this happen. In the current period of lockdown, she has made the Skype lessons as seamless as possible. Catherine is friendly, polite and has a very professional attitude.

Catherine has a huge amount of energy and professionalism during her flute lessons. Put simply - she is an excellent teacher and I cannot recommend her highly enough. The transition from face to face lessons to online lessons was seamless with the same amount of achievement obtained in both settings. My daughter thinks she is wonderful. I think she is wonderful. And my daughter's improvement in her flute player speaks volumes!
