Music Teacher

Services

 

Individual lessons are available for Clarinet, Flute, Saxophone and Recorder.

Generally a weekly half hour lesson is fine for beginners, however 45 or 60 minute lessons are available for more advanced students.  I aim to personalise a program for each student according to their musical interests, goals and age. 

Students are exposed to a wide range of musical styles, such as classical, jazz, folk and modern. They are encouraged to deepen their knowledge of music they are familiar with, and to expand their horizons into different styles.

Students often have different goals.  I am happy to prepare and enter students for A.M.E.B exams, eisteddfods/competitions and scholarship programs.

For flute, clarinet and saxophone students I recommend a minimum age of 9 years although this can vary depending on the physical size of the student.  I am happy to teach recorder students from 6 years of age as this is a smaller, easier to hold instrument.  Of course there is no upper age limit for lessons!

Instrument Selection

Buying an instrument, whether new or second hand, can be a daunting task.  I am happy to advise on recommended brands, models and dealers.  For more expensive instruments I can test play and provide you with advice.
