I have a Bachelor of Arts in modern European languages, (German/Italian), an MEd and have worked as a languages subject manager for the International Baccalaureate and for the former University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate (now OCR). During my undergraduate years I spent a year living and working in Rome and studying at the University of Frankfurt/M. Being half German, I have been part-educated in Germany, and grew up fully bilingual, along with my siblings.

Experience

I have worked as a teacher of English as a foreign language in Japan and, after this, within the Japanese community in Wales. Upon my return to the UK, I was Project Manager for the Welsh Assembly-funded Japanese in Schools project based at the University of Wales, Cardiff in the early 90s. During this time I oversaw development of the WEA-accredited “Japanese for Everyday Communication” course and created the corresponding course materials. I was also a Scrutiny Manager for the Qualifications & Curriculum Authority (QCA). A certificate of Enhanced Disclosure is available for inspection on request.

One of the most resourceful teachers in the UK.

Your voice workshops have been splendid, both musically and socially. To see how you can turn a group of disparate people into a happy, motivated and integrated choir in a mere 2-3 hours is astonishing

Trixi has a lovely, patient style of teaching which is particularly well suited for the nervous or young student. Even so she is able to encourage students to high achievement, with a strong coaching aspect which is essential for performers. My daughter started jazz piano from scratch and had a Distinction in Grade 2 within 2.5 years!

P
Pauline

Definitely a good choice for those who are uncertain of themselves as singers.

Trixi is not only a very well-rounded expert in her field but she's the most pleasant, humorous, warm, understanding, encouraging teacher you could wish for. Fear evaporates. You forget to feel self-conscious, and give in to enthusiasm and joy instead. With Trixi you're in safe hands. Just relax, let her knowledge and experience guide you, her passion infect you, and enjoy the learning process!

Trixi is unique - a few simple words, but she enhanced my enjoyment of life with her approach, enthusiasm, humour and subject matter knowledge.

Trixi Field was recommended to me by a friend and I went to my first lesson in trepidation. Trixi was very patient with me and within no time at all I was really looking forward to my weekly lesson and a good old sing. Trixi gave me confidence. I have since joined a community choir and also a local folk group. I shall miss you Trixi and will always be so grateful I had the courage to make that first telephone call to you!

Catherine

My daughters have been taught piano by Trixi for several years and have loved her lessons, my older daughter has just passed her Grade 1 exam. She also had singing lessons with Trixi which she thoroughly enjoyed and went onto passing her Grade 1 exam in popular music. Trixi is a lovely lady with a friendly, calming personality which her students love! We were sorry to lose her when she moved away!

S
Sue

Trixi guided me through to a distinction in my grade 3 exam. Her piano accompaniment was excellent and she was very encouraging.

U
Uzo, Hemel Hempstead

Trixi is very professional in her approach yet patient and friendly.
She painstakingly took her time to teach our daughter and encouraged her in her endeavours.
She is indeed a teacher who cares deeply for her students.
My daughter passed her two exams with a distinction and Merit. All testament to Trixi's teaching skills.
She comes highly recommended.
