About Katie Johnson

First Music London provides singing, piano, theory, composition and music technology lessons in Essex and London. Katie is the owner of First Music and has over 20 years experience of teaching, performing and writing music, including vocal training for several students entering The Voice and X-Factor .Katie is also a registered Music Therapist and runs parent/baby music therapy singing groups which aim to help reduce anxiety and improve the bond between parent and child. Katie plays the piano, bass guitar, guitar and sings as part of several groups as well as solo performances. Singing lessons are taught in Katie's well-equipped home studio which includes an MP3 recording to take away. Many students add their demos to Spotify, Deezer, YouTube etc and use these for auditions and session work, including TV work. Lessons focus on singing correctly and safely, with emphasis on vocal and breathing exercises, tonality and range. Together with Katie, you will work on 1- 2 songs per week, either along to backing tracks or piano/guitar. Katie has broad training and qualifications within music and has a special interest in popular music, which includes pop, R&B, jazz, indie, musical theatre, country, folk, acoustic and rock. Piano lessons are either taught in the studio or on the upright piano in the house, as well as travelling out to students. For children, Katie focuses on having fun with music. Young students are excited to come to lessons every week and have many games and exciting books for them to learn with. Katie also promotes the use of recording and songwriting as many children love showing progress to family and friends! Being a music therapist means that Katie can also introduce students to a wide range of other instruments to encourage a healthy intrigue into the broader and exciting musical world. . Katie has recently tutored a GCSE music student who has successfully achieved 100% in her performance exam and achieved high marks in her theory and composition. She has also successfully trained 3 students to apply for TV talent shows and auditions for major music and drama schools. Katie is a friendly and patient teacher and happy to teach people of all abilities. You will come away from my lessons with a smile on your face, being more confident and ultimately be performance-ready!

Glyn P.'s review on Aug 03, 2018

Katie is an excellent singing teacher. Her lessons are fun, informative and she knows the correct way of warming up the voice. As a professional singer myself, Katie has helped me to use my voice properly and to get the best results when I perform at gigs. My daughter is currently having lessons too and her confidence has improved even after the first lesson. I would recommend Katie to anyone. Glyn Protheroe Wanstead

Emily L.'s review on Aug 02, 2018

Katie is such a great teacher. My daughter has both singing and piano lessons and enjoys every single one. Katie has given her lots of confidence to help her believe in her abilities and to push for those notes and to master that piece of music. She will also be helping her with her GCSE music theory too as she enters Year 11 in September. I highly recommend Katie.

D w.'s review on Oct 06, 2016

My son is 14 and came back from his first lesson very excited about learning new techniques with a very professional and friendly teacher. He was impressed with the facilities on offer and the broad-minded approach to singing different styles. All round, a very good experience and he intends to continue which is the main thing.

Marianne s.'s review on Oct 05, 2016

Our 8 year old son is taking singing classes with Katie. She has a lovely way of communicating with him and puts in a real effort to understand what inspires him and to integrate this in her classes. It's the first time he is doing a class after school that he enjoys doing!
