Teaching style

ChildrenMusic theory small

As a certified, experienced and practising primary school music teacher, I understand how young people learn. I design my lessons to be stimulating and playful as well as challenging.

I use a variety of teaching methods to suit the individual learner. For young beginners I use Colourstrings and Kodaly based material. Lessons incorporate games, singing and fun ways to learn about music notation.  For older beginners, I can arrange their favourite music to play. I am happy to teach pupils in pairs so that parents can split the cost.  I prepare students for Music Medals, ABRSM exams, ABRSM Grade 5 Music Theory and ABRSM aural tests.

Adults

I enjoy introducing adults to the cello and developing their musicianship skills. It is many an adult’s lifelong ambition to play the cello. It is never too late to learn! Adults may wish to explore repertoire or set themselves the challenge of entering an ABRSM exam.
