About Emma

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have experience teaching many different levels and ages of pupils.
As a musician I have lots of performance experience, I have played with many ensembles such as the Oldham Youth Orchestra and the University of Manchester Symphony Orchestra. I am currently the principal clarinettist of the University of Manchester Wind Orchestra.
As a composer I have had works performed by professional ensembles and have had works performed at public events such as the New Music North West Festival.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

No but I am in the process of acquiring one.
If any parents have concerns they are able to stay with their child throughout the duration of the lesson.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained first with Oldham Music Service where I gained my Grade 8 Clarinet and Grade 5 Music Theory.
I then trained with Liz Jordan (Freelance Clarinettist - Halle, BBC Phil, Northern Chamber Orchestra) at the University of Manchester.
I am tutored by Camden Reeves for composition at the University of Manchester.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

At the moment I am teaching some beginner adult students but also have younger pupils who are currently working towards ABRSM exams, and GCSE music performance modules.
