My teaching method is very practical. I work with beginners to students at intermediate level.
We would start with the basics of learning to read basic musical notes (both flute and voice) and then learn the notes on the instrument (flute). If learning singing, then we would learn sight reading as you progress and breathing techniques.
I opt for a teaching style which is structured around learning the principles of music and tailoring my coaching style to the students.
I am a musician and freelance composer with a breadth of knowledge in performance and music theory.
I have experience teaching students from the age of 5 to 20 years old. I currently teach piano, flute, singing and music GCSE.
I have an enhanced DBS certificate.
I have a 2:1 BA Hons degree in Music and Italian from Royal Holloway University of London and attained Grade 8 Flute and Voice from ABRSM.
A motivated and enthusiastic individual with an eye for detail, looking to use creative and musical skills in order to tutor flute, singing and music theory.
Proven ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment and balance multiple simultaneous challenges such as: a joint degree in Italian and Music and managing a part-time job, adapting to different work surroundings and negotiating with numerous business partners in current role. I would relish the opportunity to share my musical skills with students.

I've known Holly for five years. She is a patient and kind person who is always willing to help people, and extremely supportive - all great qualities to look for in a tutor!
I met Holly at university and we subsequently lived together for a year. She is a very considerate and confident teacher; fun, full of enthusiasm and fiercely dependable. Holly has many talents and interests and is always sensitive to the needs of her students. Would highly recommend!
