About Elaine

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have 20 years experience teaching both children and adults of all standards working for various music services at schools, privately and in an adult education centre. At my most, when I was working for one music service I was teaching 100 flute pupils a week! Now I prefer to teach privately so I can focus more on each pupil. I am also a trained secondary music teacher and worked in secondary and primary schools as a music teacher and have worked as a primary school music coordinator for Guildford music service for which I was responsible for running and organising extra-curricular clubs, programs and events.

My main achievements in my teaching have been in the standards of playing I achieve through careful focus on technique but also maintaining pupils' interests and enjoyment by choosing music they enjoy and through imaginative approaches to my teaching. For example I have rekindled the interests of teenagers who were losing interest by getting them to improvise to their favourite pop songs! It got them learning their scales too and understanding how scales are the foundation of melodies and demonstrates to them the need for ordered training in order to also experience musical freedom and how all styles of music can be linked together.

Above all, it is me pleasure to hear my pupils playing expressively and being able to pass on the gift of music to others. I am an inspiration to my pupils but they are also an inspiration to me and I have been lucky to teach people from age ranges from 5-70 and more recently people breaking the gender and racial stereotypes that often go hand-in-hand with playing the flute. I am still working hard to encourage and nurture this and believe that anyone should play the flute if they want regardless of age, race or gender and without creative and musical boundaries. I put 100% into each pupil to help them achieve the very best they can and get the most enjoyment they can in their own unique way, overcoming what unique challenges they may face.

100% of my pupils in the past 5 years of flute teaching have achieved either merits or distinctions in their grade exams.
