Lessons and Teaching

Lessons

Currently, I offer lessons at Impington Village College, Chesterton Community College and Hardwick Primary School. These lessons take place at school during school hours. There are also a limited number of lesson times available after school in my own home. All lessons are available as follows:

20 minute individual lesson£11
30 minute individual lesson£16
45 minute individual lesson£24
30 minute group lesson (3 pupils max)£8
Taster sessionFree

There will be 33 lessons over the course of the academic year spread as evenly as possible across the terms. Lesson dates will be notified at the beginning of each term. If you are interested in registering your child for lessons, please make an initial enquiry via my contact page, and I will send you an information pack and registration form. If you are unsure as to which instrument you would like to play you may request a free taster lesson.

My Teaching

Lessons are planned to take into account each individual's needs and preferences. I use a wide range of repertoire and teaching techniques to ensure lessons are both educational and fun! There may be opportunities to participate in performances or take exams but only where the pupil is keen to do this. I pride myself in my exam results where most of my pupils pass with merit or distinction. I am a competent pianist and regularly accompany pupils in my lessons.

Ensembles

My belief is that ensemble playing is an integral part of learning an instrument and as a result of this, I have started up several bands including the Huntingdon Junior Concert Band and the Cambridge Junior Concert Band. Where possible, I include free membership of an ensemble as part of my lesson package.
