She has broadcast live on television and Radio 3, and whilst still at school she gained a Diploma of The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. During her teenage years, Kate built up an impressive list of performance venues playing at numerous concerts, competitions and weddings, and started teaching her first pupils.
