Caterina Toso has been playing piano for more than twenty years and teaching it to children and adults for almost ten.
In order to deliver a natural and entertaining teaching style she became a certified teacher (level 1) in Suzuki and Willems method. She has also explored Gordon’s Music Learning Theory through workshops held at Highbury Park Music.
She graduated in piano with the highest grades and honours at the Conservatorio “A. Vivaldi” of Alessandria (Italy). Here she also obtained a Master Degree in Piano Performance with the highest grades and honours at the age of 22.
During her studies she took part in many national and international competitions where she placed in the top three positions and in 2010 she was chosen to be part of the “Study Abroad” project which allowed her to attend “Hugh Hodgson School of Music” (Georgia University - Athens, GA, USA).
Following the professional path she had the chance to study with important pianists (such as Bruno Canino, Pascal Rogé, Benedetto Lupo, Folke Greasbeck, ...) and to perform both as a soloist and in ensemble formations in several cities in the north of Italy, France and Rome in Parco della Musica. In 2016 she perfected her skills with M° Roberto Plano at the Accademia Musicale Varesina” (Varese - Italy).
In 2018 she collaborated on a very unique project called “AMI” (Inclusive Music Activity) that helps people with physical and mental disabilities express and connect playing in small orchestras.
