As a teacher who is passionate about instilling a life-long love for music, I teach to each student’s own learning style, and at his or her own level. Keeping the lessons positive and enjoyable is essential, and I enjoy creating and/or sourcing material to suit each student’s ability and interest.
I like to ensure that beginners are able to make progress quickly, as well as ensuring that the basics are firmly in place. Students who feel successful are more likely to continue with their lessons and to want to practise at home.
Individual programmes are prepared in consultation with each student, which may include NCEA performance or other examination preparation or perhaps mastering favourite repertoire purely for the enjoyment of playing.
Adults wishing to begin lessons and those wishing to re-visit learning the flute are particularly welcome. With recorded backing-tracks accompanying tuition books, practising is made even more enjoyable.
