Catherine Taylor

Music Teacher Kindergarten

I moved to Switzerland in 2007, and became a dual citizen (British/Swiss) in 2019. My Bachelor’s degree from Exeter University is in Music, (BA Hons, 1990). I completed my International PGCE at Sunderland University in 2012. Thereafter I taught music across all age groups at international schools in Winterthur and Pfäffikon (SZ).

I have taught Music at Academia Bilingual School Winterthur since its start in 2021, at Terra Nova in Küsnacht since April 2022, and at Academia International School since August 2022.

As a dual national, I feel very much at home in both bilingual and international environments; I particularly appreciate the friendly, open-minded, dynamic, supportive atmosphere to be found at Academia schools.

Singing and movement lie at the heart of kindergarten music lessons. A sense of fun in all that we do is a central part of our musical time spent together. We like to move it!
