Hi! I am an experienced and friendly flute teacher who is ready to help you achieve your personal goals. I can teach both flute and piccolo and I have taught both the Trinity and ABRSM syllabi. I enjoy meeting and interacting with people, young and old, so our lessons will never be boring! I have played professionally in the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra and I have ample experience in performing and teaching.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I can teach the flute and piccolo as well as music theory.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I completed my BMUS (Hons) at the University of Cape Town (south African College of Music) with distinctions in Flute Performance and Chamber Music. I also spent a year training intensively with renowned flute pedagogue, Trevor Wye, in 2008 - 09. I started my MMUS at the RCM in September of 2010.
- How much do you charge?
I charge 30 GBP an hour for flute and piccolo and 25 GBP for theory lessons.
- Where do you teach?
I'm happy to travel to the student's home within reasonable distance of the W or SW area. Contact me to negotiate travel options.
- When are you available?
As I am a fulltime student - I am very flexible with times and I can discuss the individual what would be suitable for both of us. Once we have established a weekly time, I will let you know timeously if my timetable has changed for a specific week and we can reschedule. (this is unlikely to happen often).
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I am happy to teach beginners to advanced. Ages 9 and up.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I can prepare students for any exams - school, ABRSM, Trinity, - or competitions. OR, if you just fancy playing music and having fun.
Louisa is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have taught children, teenagers and adults. Beginners to advanced. I taught at Herschel Prep for Girls in Cape Town (2010) as well as at the Cape Philharmonic outreach project (2010) I have taught private students around Cape Town since 2007.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
As I am a South African citizen, I do not hold a CRB disclosure certificate. I am currently looking into getting one.
- Where and with whom did you train?
In Cape Town I studied with Bridget Rennie- Salonen (CPO). In England I have studied with Trevor Wye and my current teacher at RCM is Sue Thomas (LPO).
