Meet Miss Catherine

Alecat Music is owned and operated by Catherine Falce. 

Catherine has a family background which grew up with LOTS of musical exposure, which she believes is the foundation for her love of music now. It wasn't uncommon for her to practice singing choir pieces and rehearse musical numbers with her sisters whilst travelling in the car .. all thanks to a very patient Dad who didn't mind listening (and maybe also whistling along) on their long commutes.

 An introduction to woodwinds by a class teacher in grade 3 sparked an interest in playing flute and participating in the high school ensemble. It was at age 15 that her parents were able to afford a piano and, along with her siblings, she had her opportunity to quickly work through AMEB exams and be more creative with her compositions.

Working with children has also been a passion which led her to Primary School teaching in 1988. She graduated from RMIT with a Grad.Dip.Ed.(Music) in 1992Through opportunities presented at social and church functions, she has worked with young children in preparing and performing solos and in choir groups.

In most recent years, Catherine has been working her way through ABRSM's Singing exams, having completed grade 7 with a High Distinction in 2016. She also teaches children singing, piano and theory lessons privately at her own home. Although some students choose not to pursue music exams, several students have successfully been completing AMEB exams in piano, theory and voice. 

Music is a passionate subject which she believes opens up children's learning in many aspects of cognitive development, but also as a way of building the bonds between parent and child. Kindermusik allows her to not only share her time with children as they learn musical concepts at a young age, but to encourage and inform parents on how they can use the teaching points to make their own families musical ones.
