Our son, Will started learning the cornet with Eliot at his primary
school as part of a full class session. He enjoyed this immensely and took the opportunity in Y6 to continue his cornet lessons. He currently has a one hour lesson at home with Eliot, who recognised his potential and was keen to help Will progress.

Eliot is an enthusiastic teacher who encourages Will to try his best
in a firm but fun way. Will really enjoys playing his cornet and is
keen to practice the tasks Eliot sets him on a weekly basis.
We are happy that Will is keen to pursue his interest in the cornet
and looks forward to his lessons with Eliot.

Eliot shares his knowledge with me and does not always use technical language that I do not understand, he will break it down into more commonly used words. He describes everything in great detail. I love his passion and enthusiasm that he has for our music.
