I provide an initial consultation lesson at £10 for half an hour or £15 for one hour.
Depending on distance I may need to include small travelling expenses in my fee.
I am happy to teach group lessons, prices depend on the size of the group.
- Where do you teach?
I aim to deliver most tuition from my home in Rusholme, however am willing to travel to most locations in Greater Manchester depending on circumstances.
The exceptions are for tuba and more advanced piano - I have an electric piano in my flat, so more experienced pianists should consider finding an arrangement with an acoustic piano. If you are interested in receiving tuition in tuba, then please contact me to discuss practicalities.
- When are you available?
I am available flexibly, so please include in your enquiry times when you would be free and we can discuss an arrangement
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach all ages, though parents of younger children should contact me to discuss arrangements for lessons.
I focus on beginner to intermediate levels, though can also provide more experienced musicians with targeted coaching.
- What kind of experience do you have?
Having started tuba in secondary school, I have gone on to take up piano, singing, composing and conducting (and have also sat my Grade one and two violin in a charity event for my university music society!) As solo performances I have taken part in on all the instruments I play, I have been playing in all different kinds of choirs and ensembles over the past nine years. I have been employed as a vocal coach, and accompanist at various points, as well as delivering private tuition.
I have also worked as a GCSE Maths Tutor for the Tutor Trust, and have provided voluntary mentoring to year 11-12 children with the charity ReachOut!
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have a CRB disclosure certificate from January 2012.
