Recorder: beginner method, up to, including grade 5, all ages.
Descant recorder for younge or older learners. Exploring music basics and Baroque repertoire for older and advanced learners.
Performance opportunities are also given if the learner is wanting to explore this.
I have students from the age of three years, to just play sounds and listen to music. I have mature students who look to explore Baroque music and to focus on the original recorder.
Younger learners have started with recorder lessons and then progressed to the clarinet as they dont feel so restricted with reportoire.
It has been six years since I started having lessons from Samantha at Da Capo Academy. At the start I was 10 years old and extremely nervous about playing the clarinet and performing in front of a group, worried about not being able to play to my expectations or messing up a piece of music. However over the years I've seen my confidence grow overwhelmingly. Although I'll always be anxious when performing; I've learnt to expect it and deal with it when I perform.
What a relief to find Sammy! She has been teaching my 11 year old for over a year, taking her through two grade exams in the clarinet. She is very approachable, friendly, reliable and professional. The music lessons balance a range of competencies, from music theory; to more light-hearted playing for fun. My daughter says, "A music lesson with Sammy is something to look forward to and something to enjoy".
You are a lucky person if she can fit you in!
Samantha needed to have exceptional patience and a great sense of humour to take me on and she rose to the challenge admirably. Her passion for music is infectious and she has given me the confidence to believe it's never too late to take up an instrument. She has remained consistent and supportive through the ups and downs of learning the clarinet, guiding me through my learning and dealing with pre exam nerves. I look forward to my lessons every week
Not only is my confidence increasing as my musical abilities develop and as I have taken part in showcases but I have found a love of music that I didn't know I had. I cannot commend this music academy highly enough. The teaching, performance opportunities and sense of belonging to something very special are outstanding. Anyone privileged enough to be taught by Dylan and Samantha Christopher are extremely fortunate indeed.
