Hi I'm Luke, I'm friendly, enthusiastic and very easy to get on with. I hope I can provide you with inspirational, expert and fun tuition!
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach Flute, Piccolo and Piano in all styles not just classical - Jazz and extended techniques on the flute are great fun to learn and widen the possibilities of the instrument! I can also provide Music Theory tuition.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
BMus(Hons) 1st Class Degree (2009) From the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama
Guildhall Artist Master's Orchestral Training Programme (MMus) with Distinction (2010-2011)
DipABRSM Instrumental Teaching Diploma (2009)
ATCL Flute Recital Diploma (2006)

- How much do you charge?
My hourly rate is £25 but can also provide 30 minute lessons for £15
- Where do you teach?
I teach from my house near Gants Hill tube station which has a grand piano and music room. Or I can travel to you if it suits.
- When are you available?
I am mainly available in the evenings during the week, but as a Postgraduate student at Guildhall I have a largely self-governing schedule that I can usually change to suit you.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
Can teach all ages from beginners to more advanced players. Very happy to teach adults as well!
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I am happy to teach up to Grade 8 on the Piano and Flute but am more comfortable to go beyond that on the Flute. I can also take you through the Jazz exams if you'd prefer to take that route. Will also provide Music Theory tuition if requested.
- What kind of experience do you have?
Primarily I have teaching experience of more advanced players, but I also do a lot of accompanying younger students for exams and so have good experience working with all ages and abilities from beginners right through to Grade 8 and Diploma level.
