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.
