“Going to her piano lesson with Catherine is my daughter’s high point in the week”

Liz Etheridge

"I have several piano tuning clients whose children are taking lessons with Catherine, or who as adults are taking lessons themselves. Invariably, they have all spoken highly of Catherine as a teacher and a person. I do not hesitate to recommend her when asked about piano teachers."
