Hi everyone a long awaited update!

Well its been a while since I’ve updated my posts – so sorry if you’ve been waiting.

It’s been a strange time for us all with lockdown but its been great to be able to continue to teach and ‘see’ everyone using Zoom and to continue your musical progression.

Most importantly at this time is to keep safe and well and with this time at home you can always put this to good use and get some extra practice in.

Check out my YouTube at Kathryn Shaw Music and see how I passed the time making sure I didn’t get out of practice playing with the church band – but I had to be the whole band myself!

Take care and hopefully see you before too long.


Happy New Year

All lessons have now resumed for 2016 – timetables issued as we work towards the spring exams and Basingtoke Music festival in Feb/March.

Welcome back to my pupils refreshed after summer its good to see you all and continue your musical journeys.
Please look out for dates for an adult pupil performance workshop.
Exam entry dates are looming so I will be in touch with those ready to take an exam this session.

In the mean time remember ” you only have to practise on the days you eat”!!!!


Super performances from singing pupils last weekend at the Basingstoke Music Festival.

Winning the  Nicola Seyfeid Cup, the Noyce Cup, the Mary Grace cup and gaining high honours marks and excellent adjudicator comments.

Welcome back to the Spring term. All lesson dates have been sent out and we are working towards the Basingstoke Music festival performances. Keep up your practise routines, remember little and often is much better than an hour before you come to a lesson!
