I can teach anyone, and I'm not just saying that! I have a 3-year-old violin pupil and a retired oboe student - and everyone in between. I don't mind if you've never read a note or touched an instrument, or if you're looking to improve what skills you may already possess. All I ask is a willingness to listen and practice diligently, and we will get on famously.
Oboe: beginner to advanced
Violin: beginner to about Grade VI
Viola: beginner to Grade II
Cello: beginner to Grade II
Clarinet: beginner to Grade III
Saxophone: beginner to Grade V

I'm a professional musician, and have been teaching privately since 2010 and group settings since 2011. My students have learned to read music from being complete novices, and my whole classes have gone on to successful performances. I have a MMus from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, which I received in 2017.
I also offer 30-minute lessons for £12, and student rates if you're studying full time in college or university.
I first met Hilary when she was an English teacher with the same program as me in Ukraine. I was her head teacher and, as such, tasked with observing Hilary’s teaching. Hilary was always well prepared, 100% focused on the lesson the entire time, and used effective teaching techniques. She is very kind but will give honest critiques to help you improve. I quickly learned that Hilary was trustworthy, professional, self-motivated, selfless, responsible, and a great teacher. I can recommend Hilary without reservation. I felt at ease with Hilary and that we made the right decision having her be our teacher. You will feel the same.
Hilary has both passion for the art and compassion for the student. I work with Hilary as a professional in the arts, and she is always punctual and very prepared. Unlike some other teachers, she has a wealth of experience professionally which she carries into the classroom. Truly one of the best out there! I would highly recommend her to anyone of all levels and all ages.
Hilary plays as our principal oboist in the Newport Orchestra. Since joining us in the summer of 2018 Hilary's musical talent has shone through. She is a real asset to our group so I'm happy to recommend her as a tutor for other musicians to benefit from her skills and knowledge.
