Catherene is trained in the Royal Schools of Music curriculum and teaches cello, piano and singing. She has played the piano in classical ensembles, bands and for stage musical productions. She has played in many orchestras since the age of 11. After playing with the Auckland Youth Orchestra and St Matthews Chamber Orchestra for several years, Catherene made a switch to playing cello in bands, honing more contemporary and improvisational techniques in the process. She enjoys many different music genres and is passionate about instilling the love of music in people of all ages by introducing them to new and fresh ways of looking at traditionally classical instruments and trying out different styles of playing.
