Catherine C. Wilton, CA

About Catherine

Hello! My name is Miss Catherine and I'm a 22 year old Voice, Piano, Theater, and Music Theory teacher. With music as a passion, I have been performing since the age of three and have been teaching since the young age of 15. As my music student, you can expect to learn the fundamentals of music theory, technique, and repertoire. With performances every three to four months, my students prepare various songs of different genres to perform in front of their families and friends. As a theater and acting student, you can expect to always have lines to memorize, as well as having an understanding of what it means to be a quality actor/actress. I look forward to working with students of all ages, in any field, and at any level. I am most reachable by phone and email.

Very pleased with Catherine's skills and passion for teaching.

Catherine has done an excellent job in a very short time of bringing my daughter back to a place where she really enjoys playing music again and wants to perform. I have three other children that I am going to commence piano and singing lessons with Catherine and they are all excited about working with Catherine.

I recommend Catherine very highly.

A wonderful experience

I took vocal lessons from David. I had taken some singing lessons when I was younger, but needed to brush up. I sing in a band, and David helped my song performance. I will be taking more lessons in the future.

He's amazing!

Both my daughters are learning guitar from David and they love it. I am impressed with their improvement and David even got them to "jam" together. When I ask them what they want to be when they grow up, they say they are going to be rockstars. I would gladly refer David to anyone searching for an enthusiastic and wonderful instructor.

Gaw is a Knowledgble, Caring and Talented Music Teacher

My 5 year old daughter has been taking vocal lessons from Gaw for the past 4 months. I am always pleasantly surprised as she continually teaches new techniques each week. What a great musical foundation my daughter will eventually have. additionally Gaw is always encouraging and supportive especially when my daughter wanders off key. Thanks Gaw for your inspired training and support.
Loren R. Elk Grove, CA

Many people would like to learn to make up songs. Some aspire to include lyrics and communicate to the world. This can start with trying it out with a teacher. Lessons can provide an excellent bridge between the initial stages of gathering your musical tools and actually delivering a song to others with a recording or performance.

Loren is the best

My son is 5 he is really enjoying his time each week with Loren. Loren lets Brandon have fun but keeps him on line with what Loren would like to do that night.
