Sally Cathcart

Sally has many years of teaching experience both as a piano teacher and classroom music teacher. After her travels as a Winston Churchill Fellow, she founded the Oxford Piano Group as a place for pianists and teachers to collaborate and share experiences.

She was awarded a PhD from the Institute of Education, UCL in 2013. Her topic was the first comprehensive study of UK piano teachers, exploring common practices, expertise, values, attitudes and motivation to teaching.

She is extensively involved in teacher training; is a trained Kodály practitioner and is currently Director of Development of The Voices Foundation.

Sally is an examiner for the ABRSM, sits on the ABRSM Music Education Advisory Committee and is much in demand as a speaker and music education consultant.

She is a member of EPTA UK and the ISM, and in 2015 co-founded The Curious Piano Teachers with Sharon Mark-Teggart – which provides an online, interactive community for piano teachers worldwide.
