About the lesson

Being an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher I believe I bring this passion for music into all the lessons I teach and always encourage students to strive for their best, gaining confidence in their abilities and enjoying the process and results they accomplish.

I aim to motivate students by tailoring the teaching method to suit the individuals' needs and am quick to assess a students' strengths and also areas that need more focus, tackling these in order to help them reach their full potential.

Performing is a vital part of the learning and development process and I always endeavour to provide the students with opportunities to showcase and expand their musical journeys; both through exams, ensemble and orchestra settings.

About Vanessa

- What kind of experience do you have?

I received the LRAM teaching Diploma during my undergraduate degree at the Royal Academy of Music and have since developed my teaching skills and strategies through working with a ride range of students from contrasting backgrounds, abilities and ages.

In my current position working with Croydon Music Service I teach individuals, small groups and ensembles as well as coaching the Croydon Youth Orchestra Woodwind section, rehearsing and preparing them towards performances including most recently at Fairfield Halls.

Previous to this I have also been involved in side-by-side schemes through Southbank Sinfonia where we tutored students in orchestral playing and promoting their musical awareness in an ensemble setting.

Having held the 2nd Oboe position in the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, (2016-2018) and also worked as a freelancer extensively throughout the UK and abroad for almost ten years I believe I have the experience to inspire students and deliver a high level of competence on the oboe.

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