Hello and Welcome to my music page.

This is just a brief note to tell you a bit about myself and to give you a couple of links to you tube music videos I have recorded.

My musical journey

cathnykelI started classical violin training and study at the age of 13, attending Guildhall School of Music and Drama and then later going back to college and gained a BA (Hons). I have been a violin and music teacher in schools and privately at home to all ages of children and adults for over 40 years. Then in 2013 I decided to change profession and became trained and qualified as a Hypnotherapist, NLP Practitioner and Coach. I do, however, still see some violin students privately at home. I am still a professional musician and play violin in a different number of genres (member of the English String Band (on viola) and my own duo and trio), nyckelharpa (member of the UK Nyckelharpa Collective band and my own duo) and am often to be found at wonderful music festivals all over the country, and some abroad too!

I am available for playing gigs either solo, duo, trio or band ~ according to your needs…. parties, gigs, weddings… you name it !!! smile emoticon

The gigs I have lined up so far for 2016 are:

With the English String Band: Red Fox Ceilidh, 16th January Thaxted Sugar Beet Festival, Essex Saturday 13th February Folk East Festival, Suffolk, 19th, 20th, 21st August
