My approach is to start with good technique and focus on musicality, developing a good ear, developing musical knowledge and understanding of music theory. I am enthusiastic and positive. I like to use a flexible approach based on music that students enjoy and goals that students set.
I am a life long musician with over 25 years of experience as a multi-instrumentalist and performer. Music has always been central in my life. Throughout the years I have performed and studied with many different talented musicians and teachers. Teaching is a wonderful privilege to share the passion and love I have for music. I am a qualified and experienced teacher with over 14 years of teaching experience.
Qualified and experienced primary and secondary school teacher, youth worker, freelance writer and music teacher. 14 years experience working in schools with young people.

Excellent! I found Camilla to be a wonderful tutor: patient, encouraging, and very positive. I enjoyed my few lessons with her very much. I am very disappointed that she will no longer be tutoring as she is starting full-time employment, but I wish her every success and happiness.
