Catherine Benson - Pianist / Keyboardist | Edinburgh, Scotland(no reviews)
Based In: Edinburgh, Scotland
I am a pianist/keys player looking to begin my career as a musician, preferably on board cruise ships. Since graduating the University of Sheffield in 2011 with a first class BMus (Hons) I have been working primarily as a qualified primary music teacher in the UK. Whilst I have enjoyed doing this, my true passion is in performance which is why I am now seeking to change career paths and be able to use my performance skills as my full time career.
I have a wealth of experience in playing keys for amateur musical theatre productions for the past 10+ years as well as being a wedding pianist. I h ... ave also been an accompanist for soloists and choirs for both local and national concert and competitions. I am a strong sight reader and have had experience of playing in all styles of music from classical, to musical theatre to pop.
