    “It’s such a privilege to be able to do this and call it my job”

    From a traditional music education background, Cat has carved out a career as a freelance in-demand Saxophone player, performing at weddings, corporate and charity events, as well as exclusive club nights with DJs nationally and internationally.

    Although she still feels pre-show nerves and excitement, Cat describes how music education has given her the skills and confidence she needs as a working musician and how music has given her new opportunities.

    In this video, we followed Cat getting ready for a big corporate event.
