Lauren - Walthamstow - Trumpet

Methodology

I teach French Horn, Tenor Horn, Trumpet, Cornet, Baritone and Euphonium to all ages (including adults) and abilities. I love playing and my pupils enjoy learning with me.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

French Horn, Tenor Horn, Cornet, Trumpet, Euphonium and Baritone to exam standard, ABRSM or Trinity.
I can include music theory in my lessons.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I am in my final year of a Bmus(hons) in Horn at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. I have Grade 8 distinction and an ABRSM Diploma in French Horn. I have been teaching for over 5 years and really enjoy every minute of it. For more information about me as a player see my CV.

I am empathetic and understand different learning styles so I know how to make lessons interesting and motivating. I studied English and Psychology at A level as well as Music, so I have a broad base of knowledge that I can apply to my teaching.

- How much do you charge?

A consultation lesson is £10
Hourly Rate £25

- Where do you teach?

I am willing to travel to students' houses, I am based near Barbican so lessons can also be held there. Areas such as Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest are very close to my home.

- When are you available?

My times are flexible, and I can change week to week to suit a pupil.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Any age and any ability. Beginners are welcome.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

ABRSM Exams - and various others if students request

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I want to inspire in my pupils a love of music so that they enjoy it as much as I do. I work to build a positive relationship with you so that you feel relaxed and comfortable in your music. You are welcome to just try a lesson even if it has been a long time since you played, or you've never played at all. A consultation lesson is £10 and there is no obligation.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have over four years teaching experience with students aged 6 to 30+ and from beginners to grade 8+ and I am happy to take any age or ability. I have also led a community wind band for children as both conductor and organiser.

I am an experienced orchestral player and solo performer, I have performed a solo concerto with Sir Colin Davis at the Barbican Hall, as well as performing in many other orchestras, such as the Young Musicians European Orchestra (Principal) 2011, Guildhall Symphony Orchestra (Principal) 2011, National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain 2008 - 2009, University of London Symphony orchestra (Joint Principal) 2009- current, London Arts Orchestra (Joint Principal) 2011, London Arts Chamber Orchestra (Principal) 2012 and many others.

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

No, but I am happy to have one.

- Where and with whom did you train?

Guildhall School of Music and Drama, taught by:
Hugh Seenen, Jeff Bryant, David Pyatt, Roger Montgomery, Chris Parkes and Richard Bissil

As an adult beginner I found taking up an instrument pretty daunting.
Lauren made me feel very at ease from the outset, and wasn't
patronising in the least. We work at a level that I find challenging
but attainable - a great all round tutor!

Lauren has been teaching my 11-year old daughter, Lucy, for about 9 months, and has supported her through two changes of instrument (from baritone horn to euphonium and now French horn). Lucy enjoys the lessons a great deal and Lauren has been really good at combining a fun approach with excellent and sustained technical guidance, so Lucy is actually making progress! Lauren is a lovely teacher and I would recommend her highly.
