Clarinet tuition offered to advanced level. Saxophone and flute offered to intermediate standard.

Methodology

Pedagogies I use are that of El Sistema for groups and pedagogy / knowledge laid out in Deliège and Sloboda's Musical Beginnings and Swanwick's Music, Mind, Education, (Spiral of Musical Development in Children). Given the suitable teaching and environment any child can learn to play a musical instrument.

Background

I am a woodwind tutor, (clarinet, saxophone, flute). I have just completed my B.A. (Hons) and have twelve year's teaching experience on these instruments. I have taught within schools and at the Northern Music Centre as well a teaching freelance from home. In all the years I've taught, 99% of students have passed their graded exams, many of them achieving a merit or higher.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £2
Rate for online lessons : £30/h

Details

Beginner to grade 5 students require half hourly lessons, which will be rated at £15. Intermediate to advanced pupils require single lessons. Group tuition on the same instrument for beginner to grade 5 is provided so the half hourly payment can be divided between the children's parents. Two students are taught in a single half hour @ £15. A group of three will be taught for 45 minutes @ £22.50 and larger groups (four to six students) will be rated @ £30 for an hour's tuition. Children taught within a group must fit within their range of natural ability according to age. With this in mind, appropriate ages for groups are: 4-6yrs, 7-8, 9-11, 13-14, 15+.
