I believe that technique is the foundation on which all great musicians build their masterpieces on, therefore each lesson will begin with a quick technical exercise to both warm up and solidify those foundations. I also believe that music should be enjoyed for it to be done well and so I will allow the student to study whichever piece they prefer (within reason) wherever possible to ensure the student is motivated to practice. The room I intend to use for practice has a piano so aural and theory exercises will help improve the student's musical ear and help them massively with any exams they may intend to take . The end of the lesson will be used to outline practice for the week and what I expect to be completed for the next lesson. This will be recorded in a notebook provided by the student that should be brought to each lesson and taken home to refer to when practicing. I am perfectly happy for parents to sit in on the lesson as it will help for them to understand what their child should be working on and to help discipline their practice from a young age.
I have been playing music all my life- starting out with cello and then piano and music theory, my musical knowledge is well rounded and complete. orchestras, choirs, chamber groups and solo playing has been the norm for me all my life and I am well equipped with knowledge and advice for general playing, as well as tuition. I have previously given piano lessons to my neighbor in preparation for his grade one exam. I currently play in the City of Sheffield Youth Orchestra and have recently been on tour to Italy where we played in many beautiful cathedrals for local audiences.

Perfect! Great Tutor, with good lesson plans, lots of knowledge
& plenty of feedback and encouragement
Perfect! Great first lesson! Maddy is very methodical, knowledgeable, calm & encouraging.
Perfect! Madeleine is patient and knowledgeable. She got a great passion for teaching.
She is very studious herself, so was very good at encouraging me to work during my exams. She is also very good at explaining things and has an in depth knowledge of her subjects making her an excellent tutor. Her passion for music also makes her a very spirited and interesting tutor.
Madeleine and I are friends from school who have been in several classes together where I have not only watched her brilliance have also had the privilege of being helped by her. She is one of the most hardworking and reliable people I know. She has a genuine passion for, and understanding of biology- as well as many other subjects. However, one of the more important points to note, is that Madeleine is a genuine and caring person who will always put you and how you feel first.
Madeleine is a lovely person who has personally helped me with biology homework in the past and got an 8/ A* at GCSE.
