Ability Levels: Beginners to Intermediate
As a primary-trained teacher with over 20 years of both classroom and private tuition, I specialise in teaching children from beginner level up to around Grade 5 standard. I teach in my home, and am DBS cleared. My lessons are stimulating and fun, and I use a variety of teaching approaches to engage and motivate pupils, using a wide range of teaching materials as well as my own ideas developed throughout my career. My aim is to foster a life-long love of music whilst giving a firm grounding in technique and theory. I am able to prepare for ABRSM exams, although this is not the principle focus of my teaching. I am also able to advise and prepare pupils for scholarship assessments/auditions for independent schools.
In addition to my private teaching I also work with the elderly, delivering interactive therepetic music sessions in a large number of residential care homes. I also work within nursery settings delivering high-quality music education to groups of pre-school aged children.
If you are looking for a lively, energetic, engaging and fun introduction to instrumental tuition for your child then please do get in touch, I’d love to work with you and your child!
