'We had a fantastic lesson, covering most of my audition repertoire. For the Haydn, Kate encouraged me to play the Eb trumpet as if it were a bigger trumpet and to generally play with a fuller, more orchestral sound. I came away from the lesson with a real boost of confidence' Imogen Hancock

'I was very fortunate to have been taught by Kate Moore for my Postgraduate Studies at the RCM. Kate goes above and beyond for every pupil she mentors and her lessons are inspiring. One great thing is that she often plays her trumpet alongside you. This is so useful to aspiring musicians as it gives you an idea of the sound you need for orchestral playing. I learnt so much and would strongly recommend her to anyone looking to take their playing to the next level' Natalie Mellers

'Kate is a fantastic teacher who can’t do enough for her pupils. She goes the extra mile to ensure that every one of her pupils has more than enough support and resources necessary to develop as a player. In her lessons, Kate covers a wide range of material, borrowing from many of the standard method books and also from many which are less well known, giving her teaching a well rounded approach. I’ve found that I’ve grown in confidence as a player through my lessons with Kate and I’m sure her other pupils would say the same' Christopher Bowman

'Kate’s teaching is truly inspirational. She teaches how important it is to be a good musician and not just a good trumpet player. Kate also gives great advice about being a trumpet player in the profession, which can result in some amusing stories. She has been such a positive influence on me’ Paul Mitchell

'I was fortunate to study with Kate during my time as a Postgraduate at the RCM. Alongside great technical advice, I found that Kate’s experience in the profession and the knowledge that she passed on was invaluable. Kate can also give help in finding the correct mental approach to demanding situations. I know that she provides a lot of support to all of her students and goes above and beyond to make sure everyone is fulfilling their potential' Elliot Phelps

‘My trumpet playing has come on leaps and bounds since studying with Kate. She taught me at RCM alongside my job as principal trumpet of the Coldstream Guards Band. She is an experienced player at the very top level, but also a person who is totally committed to getting the very best out of all of her students. Her commitment and passion for music is truly inspiring' Nick Mott
