Free consultation lesson and chat.
I have successfully taught
the flute for several decades: I support my pupils in their musical aims –
using a variety of techniques and resources. Some pupils work towards exams
but most play the flute for pleasure whilst developing their skills and confidence.
I am at home teaching beginners or advanced pupils; new learners or
returners; and enjoy the variety my flute teaching brings.
I hold regular informal concerts so that pupils can develop confidence in a
supportive environment, and we often play as a group on these occasions. I
enjoy seeing everyone develop their playing.
I have a full DBS/CRB certificate. On street parking available . Large, pleasant music studio with a beautiful view of Winchester.
I was educated at Chetham's and the Royal Academy of Music, and won the flute
prize and a Countess of Munster award, studying with Gareth Morris, Atarah
Ben Tovim, Patricia Morris and Sebastian Bell. I played the flute
professionally, freelancing, for example, with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic
Orchestra. Other work included solo recitals and early twentieth-century and
contemporary chamber music, on the flute, piccolo and alto flute.
I taught full time at a leading independent girls' school as head of woodwind
and brass (1989-1999). This gave opportunity for more diverse performances,
conducting orchestras, bands and flute choirs and class teaching up to A
