About

Phoenix Rising Music Studio

Phoenix Rising Music Studio was established in 2017 by David Catterall.  While the studio is new, David had been teaching for more than 10 years previously.  The name is inspired by the life cycle of a phoenix, its birth in particularly.  It represents new beginnings and for all students who start at the studio, whether brand new, or returning to an old passion, it is always a new experience.

About the Teacher

I am a graduate of Sydney Conservatorium of Music, having graduated with a degree in Music Studies.

During Year 12, I completed my Associate of Music Australia diploma on flute as well as my Certificate of Performance on Piano. During university years, I also completed my Licenciate diploma on flute with Trinity College, London.

I began teaching early beginners in High School and turned it into a full time job in 2015. I believe a student can never be too old to learn their desired instrument and love sharing in my student's successes.

David is exceptionally talented and a very good teacher. My daughter has been learning piano with David since her Kindy days. He makes his classes so enjoyable, as I see that joy when my daughter practices at home. Can't thank him enough for his guidance.

David is an amazingly patient teacher who knows his students strengths and weaknesses and knows how to work with them. My elder son started learning with David when he was in kindy and now my younger son (in kindy) started with him and I can see the love for music that keeps growing in the boys....
Thank you David for the musical journey...

David is an amazing teacher. His ability to explain techniques has seen me make more progress faster. He is flexible and reliable. As a more mature student David has been able to teach me ways to practice smarter not longer. I highly recommend David if you are wanting to learn Flute or Piano as he is one of the best music teachers I have had.

Learning piano as an adult is tricky but David has a special talent for teaching this old dog new tricks. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons with David. David is a knowledgeable and highly talented musician. I never thought it possible that i would play a piece on a piano but I am. It has been difficult at times but David is there always encouraging me and changing my learning to suit. David is an excellent music teacher and makes the learning experience fun and rewarding. Thank you David.

David is an incredible teacher with modern teaching methods! I can play music I love while learning at the same time. Learning piano has never been so fun! He has a unique skill for identifying a student's greatest learning challenges, and helping them overcome it in an enjoyable way! I would highly recommend to students of all levels!
