- Tell me about some of your current students.
My current students range from teenagers to Adults. Many of my students are working towards ABRSM exams in the near future while I take a more flexible approach with other students; helping them prepare orchestral and chamber works. My teaching style is focused on solid technique and musicality. Equally as important is enabling students to be able to practice wisely, efficiently and interdependently.
â€œI feel so lucky finding a teacher like Aled. I really enjoy my lessons. He has the patience of a saint, is so inspirational and makes the lessons fun. And that is so important.”
