Over Catarina T.
Hello! My name is Catarina, I'm a 26-year-old musician and I come from Portugal. For the last years I have been playing in concert rooms mainly in Lisbon and Porto, and I started teaching music in 2011. Since then, I've been teaching musical expression, piano, harpsichord, keyboard and singing to children from 3 years old to 18 years old and to adults. I also have experience babysitting children since newborn.
In orchestra and chamber music I've had the chance to work with several musicians, such as Pedro Couto Soares, Ana Mafalda Castro, Pedro Castro, Pedro Sousa Silva, Hugo Sanches, Xurxo Varela, Marco Ceccato, Magna Ferreira, Benjamin Chernier, Alberto Roque, Miguel Henriques and Carlos Marecos. I also studied figured bass and continuo with the harpsichordist Joana Bagulho and the theorbist Ronaldo Lopes.
Over the last years I also participated and attended harpsichord masterclasses with Jacques Ogg, Elisabeth Joyé, Tony Millán and Hans Knut Sveen.
I'm currently finishing my Master's degree in Music Teaching and I recently moved to Eindhoven. Here I want to grow as a teacher and as a musician and to be challenged as a professional and as a person.
I really like to teach and to see how students can grow and develop their skills and creativity. I believe with time, motivation, work and persistence, you can study music and really enjoy it. And I will be there to help you all the way!
I currently speak Portuguese (native), Spanish and English. I can also speak a little bit French and I started learning German a few months ago. I’m also trying to learn some Dutch, which is my next challenge since I'm very interested in learning it. Maybe we can change some words :)
Just to tell you a little bit more about me, in my spare time I like to recycle some materials, for instance coffee capsules or milk packages, and transform them in wearable art pieces, such as necklaces, bracelets and wallets. I also like to camp, to hike, and to cook.
Feel free to contact me for a trial lesson. Hope to meet you soon.
Met vriendelijke groet,
