Catherine Cossey ALCM CertPPTC MA

Catherine is a passionate educator with over 15 years of experience as a piano teacher and pre-school music teacher. In 2010 she graduated from EPTA’s Certificate of Practical Piano Teaching with distinction, and in 2016 she was awarded a Masters with Distinction in Instrumental Teaching from the University of Reading. Catherine is passionate about piano teaching and believes that when teachers work in community they can achieve so much more than when they work in isolation. This belief led to her founding Catherine Cossey Piano Tuition Ltd (CCPT) in 2012. Through CCPT Catherine is involved in developing innovative curriculum and resources that enhance students’ experience of music.

Catherine loves working with students of all ages and abilities and seeing them develop into their full musical potential. Alongside teaching piano she teaches the Musical Discoveries classes for 4-5 year olds which put her years of pre-school music teaching to good use! As well as mentoring her team at CCPT, Catherine is involved in training and developing instrumental teachers at Higher Education level. She lives in Coventry with her husband Matt, also a pianist and piano teacher, and their two sons. She is a member of EPTA (UK) and The Curious Piano Teachers.


  • Daisy enjoys her classes immensely and looks forward to her lessons each week.

  • I like going to music because it makes me happy and I like learning the songs.

    Benjamin – Aged 5
  • We have seen Jordan grow in confidence over the past year and the group nights as well as the concerts have played a huge part in stretching him and building up his self belief and confidence.  This was noticeable over the festive period when at church Jordan played 2nd keys for our carol service in front of a packed house.  This he wouldn’t have done without your help over the past year so thank you and keep up the good work!

    John – Parent
  • I loved playing games like ‘Cuckoo where are you?’ and ‘Doggy with the bone’.

    Phoebe – Aged 5
  • Friends and family are really impressed with what and how they learn, as some of the lessons they talk about are just about working through a book and learning each piece one at a time. Amrit and Gurjeevan love telling everyone about their fun lessons and talk about their compositions with pride!  I cannot thank you enough for all your time and attention to the two of them.  It has given them both so much confidence in themselves and they are so proud of what they are achieving.  As parents, we couldn’t be happier.

    Pritti – Parent
  • As the parent of a child who had never played piano before, I found the teacher to be delightful and patient and their lessons to be engaging and at an appropriate level for my daughter.  The fact that the main emphasis of CCPT appears to be on engaging the student and not about their ability level makes it the perfect environment to learn in!

    Ange – Parent
  • A fun way to learn all about music.  The children sing, dance and play different instruments all in a relaxed and friendly environment.  After the lessons none of the children are in a rush to go home!

  • The Musical Discoveries lessons are fantastic: pacy, fun and engaging.  It’s been great to see my daughter’s singing confidence grow.
