Alicia offers tuition in preparation for the ABRSM grade 5 music theory exam (which is required to progress to your grade 6 practical), if you need help right from the start or just a little extra guidance in the run up to your exam.
She also offers extra help with GCSE/A-Level music for those needing a bit of extra guidance with the curriculum or those who really want to achieve the top grades.
Among other subjects, Alicia studied harmony, counterpoint and analysis during her undergraduate studies at the University of Leeds and currently studies Advanced Performance Analysis at the RWCMD as part of her Masters. She also has A Level Music (A) and GCSE Music (A*) qualifications.
Alicia's previous students have mainly been beginners working at grade 0-3 level but she is more than happy to teach any age or ability from grade 0-8. Alicia have also advised and helped a couple of undergraduate flautists through their first/second year assessments.
