Passionate about education, Catalina has developed an innovative approach to historical performance practice pedagogy, using curated knowledge-based-networks for engaging the students with historical sources through an active reflective process. Through this method, alongside the technical and musical skills development, each student examines how knowledge influences their own performance, not only to give a better understanding of the music but encouraging the process of musical embodiment and artistic individuality of each student.
She is faculty at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels since 2019, leading a monthly harpsichord+research workshops and masterclass series. She has been invited as Visting Professor of Harpsichord at Oberlin Conservatory (USA) and to teach master-classes at the Longy School of Music Cambridge, the Flint Antique Harpsichords Collection (USA), the Horniman Museum (UK), the Universität der Künste Berlin and the Folkwang Universität der Künste Essen (Germany). Catalina teaches regularly at the Early Music Academy in Lunenburg (Canada), Early Music Course at Burg Fürsteneck and the International Portative Organ Festival, which she curates since 2011.
Engaged in shaping the newest generation of historical performers she’s been invited as jury member at the Jurow International Harpsichord Competition, Mechelen Harpsichord Competition, the Dulwich Historical Keyboards Competition and NORDEM Early Music Competition.
Due to the busy performance schedule, Catalina is available for private teaching (online) and privately organized master-classes upon request.
