COACHING

Kateriana Fenech under her married name, Kate Fenech Field, was introduced to teaching when she was invited to run an education project for Clonter Opera Company in Cheshire, introducing opera to hundreds of primary school children through county-wide music workshops.

 

Dance has also been an important part of Kate's life as a performer and, subsequently, as a teacher; she trained at the Susan Handy School of Dance in the Cecchetti Method and in RAD with the Julie Baugh School of Ballet as well as taking modern and tap dance lessons at Redroofs Theatre SchoolKate was invited to present a singing workshop for one of the UK's most successful performing arts schools, the Jayne A Coleman Academy of Dance in Crowthorne; this grew into a successful fourteen-year partnership producing many award-winning numbers, (see photos below). Kate produced all the vocal arrangements for the JACAD shows - from challenging contrapuntal Elsa's to adorable unison Munchkins!

Kate is well-trained in the style and delivery of a quality choral singing, having trained with East Berkshire Youth Choir, directed by Gillian Dibden and, later, as a choral scholar at Prior Park College in Bath for the school's award-winning Chamber Choir, directed by Richard Dunster-Sigtermans. As a post-graduate, Kate was invited to join the RNCM chamber choir performing works by JS Bach, directed by Ralph Allwood. She has directed and arranged numerous works for choirs and groups including a decade with Claires Court Schools Senior Girls Choir and Boys Chamber Choir who mainly performed works from contemporary repertoire. Kate started a Musical Theatre Class for 5-11 year olds at JACAD which grew to be one of their most popular classes and enjoyed directing her own a cappella choir at St Swithun's School, aptly named Field Voices.

Kate was a visiting singing teacher (peripatetic) at St Swithun's School, The Piggott School, Claires Court School and JACAD until 2017 when she emigrated from England to the Mediterranean island of Malta. In 2018 Kate joined Masquerade as a private and group singing coach.  Kate's singing pupils are well prepared for either ABRSM or Trinity College London grade music examinations. The singing exam average result of Kate's pupils is a Distinction of 87.3%, averaged over three hundred and forty solo entry exam results, (2004-2021). 

Having spent two decades training in and practicing the arts and arts education, Kate currently spearheads Theatre for Young Audiences, Youth Training, Community Singing and Audience Development projects at Malta's National Theatre, Teatru Manoel running the Learning & Participation programme, TOI TOI. In October 2021, Kate rebooted Teatru Manoel Youth Opera in weekly training sessions focusing on acting for singers, opera scenes and the creative writing process of narrative and melodic composition, aided by composers, choreographers and other musicians to co-create inspiring new work. 

Pupils trained by Kate have successfully gained scholarships to the Royal Academy of Music,  The Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Oxford and Cambridge University, Guildford School of Acting, Laine Theatre Arts, D & B School of Performing Arts, Bird College, Mountview, Arts Ed and Tiffany Theatre College.

Kate's alumni include professional West End, International and National touring singers, Film & T.V. Actors, Jazz singers, Recitalists, Business Speakers, Pop Choir Directors, Choral singers and Operatic Society Members.
