- Tell me about some of your current students.
Currently two brothers working towards Grade 7 Trumpet using the Trinity Board, both showing excellent promise. I began teaching them both after Grade 5 and I am currently teaching the elder brother basic composition techniques. Flexibility in lessons has allowed me to keep both students motivated whilst covering the necessary teachnical jump between the grades.
