My name is Kirsty McGonigle and you read from the title, I am a second year music student at ththe University of Aberdeen. For the past year I have been working with a flute specialist to improve my technique on the flute and will continue to do so throughout the duration of my studies. I have been playing the flute for almost ten years and feel that I am very comfortable with the instrument at this stage and am knowledgeable enough to pass on advice about playing said instrument. I can also offer tutoring in the reading of sheet music and the playing of traditional Irish flutes as I also regularly perform with these although be warned, I am self taught. As a tutor on this platform, I hope to make the learning experience both enjoyable and insightful to those who wish to learn this reedless instrument.I will
I will be truthful, I have never formally taught before but I have prior experience of helping beginners and intermediates in ensemble settings. For example, I aided youngsters in a local youth orchestra before I left home for university. I feel, whilst I cannot necessarily offer a student much experience, I can offer a fresh perspective on techniques for playing the flute.
I am currently studying a Bachelor of Music at the University of Aberdeen.
I have achieved ABRSM Grade 8 Flute with distinction.
I have performed at charity gigs, informal folk sessions and in professional orchestras run by the university. Currently I am part of the University of Aberdeen Symphony Orchestra and the university Wind and Concert Band. I have also performed with the Kings Philharmonic Wind Orchestra which is run by students for students and aims to not only bring wind players together but showcase new music by aspiring composers.
