- Tell me about your qualifications.
I received my Masters degree from The Royal Academy of Music in London, studying with Kate Hill of the English Chamber Orchestra, and Clare Southworth. My undergraduate studies were completed in New York at the Aaron Copland School of Music with Renee Siebert of the NY Philharmonic and Stefan Hoskuldsson of The NY Metropolitan Opera. In 2009 I was appointed Co-Principal Flute of the Southbank Sinfonia orchestra in London. My earlier years include attending the Manhattan School of Music prep school in New York.
- How much do you charge?
I normally charge £30/hr, and this fee is flexible, depending on your location, as I can teach from my home near Finchley Road tube station, or travel to my students' homes to teach. I also offer the option of half-hour and forty-five minutes, and price can be discussed.
- Where do you teach?
I live near Finchley Road tube station (approx 1 minute walk), or alternatively I can travel to your home for lessons.
- When are you available?
I am available 7 days a week, and times to be discussed as I also work in the Royal Academy of Music.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach all ages and levels, from child to adult, beginner to advanced.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
Video Skype for online tutoring. Many of my colleagues and past professors are also achieving wonderful results with having a flute lesson over the internet. It is very convenient for the student and teacher, and allows for detailed demonstrations on the flute with acceptable sound quality. I have even witnessed a flute master class being given solely through Skype. Pricing for the Skype lesson will normally run a bit lower than my proposed fee for an hour lesson.

"Amanda was Co-Principal Flutist of the highly regarded Southbank Sinfonia in London in 2009-2010 ((concealed information) Southbank Sinfonia's intensive education outreach program taught Amanda the importance of receiving a well-balanced music education right from the beginning years of study.
