"I feel that I have been honoured to experience Catherine’s expert knowledge and interest in music and her enthusiasm and passion for working to bring this to fellow musicians and audiences."
Lucinda Wright (Cellist and teacher)

"Catherine has brilliant communication skills that really come to the fore in concerts – audiences love her. She often addresses the audience before a performance, warming them up and creating an atmosphere of expectation that she then goes on to fulfil."
