BMus (Hons) Community Music Graduate offering Private Flute, Tin Whistle and Music Reading Classes

Methodology

During my classes, I approach teaching as building blocks, building on any prior knowledge of music or flute playing etc and engage my students by relating their work to a wider picture so they can have tangible goals. I also really like my students to take the initiative to bring their own ideas to the lesson so I encourage students to expand their knowledge outside the lesson as well as within.

Experience

I am a BMus (Hons) Community Music student graduating in June offering classes to those of any skill level. My background is in music performance and community "musicking" which includes work with all different ages and backgrounds from bucket drumming, to classroom teaching and choir conducting. I also have extensive experience playing in ensembles and solo which has given me a broad experience of performance practice.

PLACEMENT EXPERIENCE
Bucket Drumming, CREATE, Aberdeen September - October 2019
- Drumming on used buckets with Adults with additional support needs. Improved improvisational skills and confidence
to work in new groups of people each week.
Musical Memories, Dementia Research Centre, Aberdeen October - November 2018
- Weekly choir for people with dementia and their family and carers. I was able to improve both my communication
skills and also instrumental improvisation.
Big Music for Minis, Glasgow Life November 2018
- A two-day event which invited thousands of children aged 0-7 from across Scotland and the United Kingdom to the
Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow. Due to the event team being short-staffed, I was given additional responsibilities and
was afforded the opportunity to help run a percussion workshop.
PERFORMANCE EXPERIENCE
Flute
- Currently, I perform in the North East School of Music Flute Choir which I have been part of since 2017. It is a small
select group of flautists run by my university flute tutor. As part of this choir, we perform complex flute ensemble
repertoire and give a number of concerts each year in various settings such as care homes around Aberdeenshire and
entrepreneurial events.
- I have also performed with a number of university ensembles including, the Universities of Scotland Symphony
Orchestra, University of Aberdeen Symphony Orchestra, King’s Philharmonic Wind Orchestra and the University of
Aberdeen Concert Band.
- In terms of solo performance, I have competed locally and nationally at the Rotary Young Musician Competition in
Edinburgh (2016) after qualifying locally and then regionally.
Low Whistle
- At the 2019 summer graduations, I performed a traditional medley with a member of a Scottish trad group that I
established with a fellow student. We performed to an audience of around 500 graduate Law students.
- This group also performs at Ceilidhs and local concerts where I use a mixture of both Low Whistle and the Penny
Whistle.

Perfect! Kirsty came across as very knowledgeable and felt at ease very soon into the session. Looking forward to the lessons.

Kirsty's response

Celia is a lovely student who is great at engaging with the teaching, whilst also bring her own knowledge to the table. I am looking forward to continuing my lessons with her.

S
Stuart

Perfect! Very good. Highly recommended for children

Kirsty's response

They are a lovely student to teach as they show great enthusiasm and a great aptitude for the flute. We have just begun to read sheet music and learn about flute technique which is already improving with each lesson, even at this early stage.

P
Peter

Perfect! Kirtsy is an excellent tutor, very flexible in her approach and adjusts her pace to suit the learner. I have been wanting to get some support in learning the low whistle and I got so much from Kirsty even in the very first lesson.
Highly recommended!

Kirsty's response

Peter showed great enthusiasm for his lesson, demonstrating a great openness to learning new techniques and tips for the Low Whistle.

Kirsty has been playing the flute and low whistle for many years and has gained experience from both within and out with her degree. Her patience and personableness make her a great choice for a teacher and I would recommend her lessons to people of all skill levels.

I’ve known Kirsty for a very long time, she’s always been pro-active and goes out of her way to help you wherever she can, as well as being extremely patient while also making the experience pleasantly exciting.
