Teacher Info

Hello, my name is Catherine and I am a professional Opera Singer and singing teacher based in London and Florida.

My musical journey began at the age of 7 when I joined the Oxford Youth Choirs. I started learning with soprano Rebecca Mosely-Morgan and after a few years I took up a scholarship to study singing at the Royal Academy of Music in London. After continuing my studies with a Postgraduate Diploma from the Royal College of Music, I was taken on by English National Opera as a Harewood Artist, performing lead roles on the stage of the London Coliseum from 2011-2018. I have been lucky enough to have sung under the batons of Sir Edward Gardner, Sir Mark Elder, Mark Wigglesworth, Michael Hoffstetter, Gianluca Marciano among others.

I have performed in the Royal Opera House, Royal Albert Hall and venues across the UK and Europe. Garnering rave reviews such as ‘Vocally plumtious’, by Hugh Canning in The Sunday Times and ‘chameleonic’ by The Spectator. “Catherine Young almost stole the show as a regulation traumatised, serially drunk and abused Pauline – bringing some point and many diversions to a cipherish character”- Opera Now

Alongside my career as a performer, I have enjoyed teaching and passing on the joy of singing to many. I think music is healing and collaborative, and I wish to spread the knowledge I have gained from devoting my life to it.

I like to teach healthy vocal production techniques, based on the bel canto school.
