Kirsty- Piano, French horn and trumpet. Teacher and musician based in Maidstone.

Methodology

Interested in learning the piano, french horn or trumpet? Great! I am a piano teacher, freelance french horn player and brass tutor.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach beginner piano lessons, students of any age are welcome! I currently teach piano both privately and at a London prep school, teaching children from the age of 5. Privately I have taught students of all ages, including adults. I was also previously a brass teacher with Hillingdon Music Hub, teaching brass instruments in schools in the borough.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I received a Bachelor of Music degree on the french horn from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. Following this I gained my Masters in Music qualification from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. I also have ABRSM grade 8 in piano and french horn.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £35 an hour, £30 for 45 mins and £25 for half an hour.

- Where do you teach?

I will teach at my home in Bower Place, Maidstone.

- When are you available?

Times are flexible, and I am very willing to negotiate lesson times to suit you. Please note as a working freelance musician there may be times when lesson times need to be changed due to my working schedule, but I will try to avoid this wherever possible.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Piano: beginner- ABRSM grade 5
French horn- beginner-advanced
Trumpet: beginner- ABRSM grade 5

I will teach anyone any age who is willing and enthusiastic to learn!

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Qualifications with ABRSM, Trinity Guildhall, school assessments or none at all, whatever the student prefers.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Friendly, relaxed and patient I place emphasis on enjoying music and the instrument. I hope that students would share in my passion for music whether learning seriously or just for fun.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have experience teaching pupils of all ages. Specifically working in beginner piano, I teach at a prep school with children aged 5 and up as well as having lots of private teaching experience. I have also worked with children in my previous role as a tutor with Hillingdon Music Hub, teaching around 30 children in the borough. As a freelance musician, I have experience performing with professional orchestras and ensembles both in London and across the country.

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

Yes

- Where and with whom did you train?

I studied french horn at the Royal Northern College of Music with Lindsey Stoker and Beccy Goldberg. I then competed a Masters degree at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with Hugh Seenan, Jeff Bryant, Richard Bissill and Jonathan Lipton. I have also performed in masterclasses with Froydis Ree Werke, Frank Lloyd, David Pyatt and John Ryan. I was a member of the training orchestra Southbank Sinfonia in 2014.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Musicians Union

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My students have included young children just beginning to explore music and the piano, some older children who play for fun and some who work for exams, and adult beginners in piano, trumpet and french horn. At the moment I am working with children at a prep school, I have some young beginners and some who are now taking graded exams.
