« Emma taught me to play the guitar. She gets the balance between friendly and focused just right. She was so supportive, and even though I’m very much a fully grown human she seemed to teach to, and reassure my self conscious and apprehensive inner child. She is highly skilled in many instruments and a great people’s person to boot. You’ll learn a lot from her and enjoy the journey. »

Flute teacher in York who teaches all ages and abilities in a relaxed environment, working towards grades or just for fun. Give me a call to find out more.

Methodology

I teach beginners up to diploma level. My focus is on encouraging my pupils to enjoy their lessons. I like them to play music that inspires them and am happy to work to the ABRSM exam syllabus, or explore a wider range of music styles. If people enjoy playing their instrument, they are much more likely to practise between lessons and this is where the improvement happens.

Experience

I have grade 8 distinction and 12 years experience teaching from home and in primary and secondary schools around York. I taught at The Mount School York for several years and have taught adults from all different musical backgrounds and none. I have played in many orchestras including, Jorvik G&S society, York opera orchestra and play principle flute for Thirsk Sinfonia.

I am a professional musician and although she is my daughter I have hired her on numerous occasions to play for me. Her flute playing technique is excellent and she has a beautiful tone. She has a tried and tested record of teaching pupils to a good grade standard.
