We are pleased to announce that due to high demand, the Andrew Walker School of Music is now offering vocal and songwriting lessons! Our teacher Katie is passionate about sharing her joy of singing with students, whether they be beginning for the first time, or continuing a life-long passion of singing or songwriting.
Katie says: "As a tutor, I consider myself to be a very kind, caring, friendly and bubbly teacher who always strives to bring out the best in all my pupils. I always try to find new and innovative ways to help students who may be struggling with either technique, confidence or self-doubt. I was a student once too and know exactly how daunting and vulnerable it could feel to sing in front of someone I didn't know very well. I always aim to enable students to feel at ease and like they can be who they are without fear of judgement. I have learned numerous vocal/performance/piano/songwriting/recording techniques over the years as well as theory/knowledge and always try to incorporate new and interesting ways to keep the student engaged. I hope to see you at the Andrew Walker School of Music soon!"
