This is how 2 referees rated Anna:
With wide experience working with young people with organisations like the London Philharmonic Orchestra and a First from the Royal College of Music, I spend a lot of time both playing and teaching and have a real passion for both. I`m Anna, and I`m a horn player living and working in London.
As a professional musician, my experience includes playing with Royal Northern Sinfonia, London Sinfonietta, Mahler Chamber Orchestra, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Sinfonia Cymru, the National Youth Jazz Orchestra (including at the 2012 BBC Proms), the European Union Youth Orchestra and the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester. I studied as an undergraduate at the Royal College of Music, gaining a First in 2014, and completed my masters with Distinction at the Royal Academy of Music, where in 2015 I won both the Dennis Brain Horn Prize and the Bob Paxman Prize.
I also do lots of work with young people! As well as my teaching below, I have done outreach work and co-led workshops for the London Philharmonic Orchestra, given pre-concert talks to audiences of 200 children (as well as groups of adults) at the Royal College of Music, worked with a youth choir leading rehearsals in preparation for a Sunday mass at St Mark`s, Venice, given workshops as a visiting tutor at Goldsmiths University and assisted with summer workshops for children prior to BBC Proms concerts. I am fully CRB checked.
Above all, experience since 2013 of teaching private horn pupils anywhere from beginners to adult learners, including putting pupils through ABRSM grades. I also happily teach online via Skype, Zoom etc.

Learning an instrument should be fun, but a feeling of being good at it certainly helps us enjoy it! I am a creative teacher - as well as passing on a love of the instrument, I love trying to solve all the different problems we come up against as teachers and students. I hope my personality comes over a little in my writing - I'm enthusiastic, good with all age groups and highly motivated. I'm also organised, reliable and punctual - as well as technically savvy enough to cope with and advise on online lessons. Please feel free to get in touch - whether it's to arrange a lesson or just to ask a few questions.
