Kate first picked up the violin at the age of six, after hearing Vanessa Mae’s music. This was the start of a lifelong obsession with both violin music and live performances. Kate will soon graduate with a Masters degree in Violin Performance from the Royal Northern College of Music (one of the UK’s most prestigious musical conservatoires), and already has a 2:1 BA Hons degree in Music from the University of Leeds. She has studied under a number of world-famous tutors that have included Mieczyslaw Szlezer, Lukas David, Miranda Playfair (co-leader of Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra) Raimonda Koco (Opera North) and Leland Chen (a Mehuhin pupil).
Kate is currently giving an average of around two performances every week, and is also currently promoting her first album, with another two on the way in the near future! Kate’s own creative vision comes into focus in her recording work, where she transforms the violin from being predominantly a classical instrument into a contemporary masterpiece, infusing aspects of traditional music with a modern edge. Kate performs using her distinctive one-of-a-kind electric violin, which has been hand-made by world famous British violin maker Ted Brewer.
“Kate was truly spectacular at our Range Rover Evoque Launch, she entertained and indeed mesmerised our guests all evening… A true professional, we would not hesitate to recommend her, particularly if you’re looking for that wow factor for your Event”
– Simon Lewis – Land Rover
