What is Stars & Catz?

Stars & Catz Music Teacher Network is an international network of professional music teachers and music schools, supported by a small team of people who are dedicated to matching students with teachers.

(Hello from the team.)

Our teacher-matching service is free, and our network is a collective of top quality teachers who we’ve screened for experience and the relevant qualifications. You can be sure that when we’re looking for a teacher for you, we’re scanning the cream of the crop!

Stars & Catz was founded by Oliver Braithwaite, himself a singer/songwriter and music teacher. After several years teaching privately, Oliver noticed that no one seemed to be looking after music students and teachers, all in one place. Before too long, Stars & Catz was born.

Our mission is to help anyone who wants to learn an instrument (or sing!) get learning, and to help good teachers be chock full with as many students as they can handle. We believe that learning should be fun, easy and fast. Could there be anything more satisfying than helping teachers overflow with students and students achieve their music dreams? We don’t think so.


* Why Stars & Catz? Originally Oliver intended to focus on guitar and piano, so students had the opportunity to become a Guitar Star or a Jazzy Cat. The business quickly outgrew two instruments but the name was catchy, so it stayed.
