Information About Audrey - Leeds teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Audrey:
Hello! My name is Audrey and I play the viola. I am bilingual French-English, originally from London and get very excited when I meet a fellow viola player (there are not many of us!). I am currently studying at the University of Leeds (Zoology, BSc) but have always wanted to keep my viola playing up. I attended the Royal College of Music Junior Department, after being accepted to the Royal Academy of Music Junior Dept. and Guildhall School of Music and Drama Junior Dept.
For one year I studied Music Performance, specialising in Viola performance and learning with Lucy Nolan in Manchester. I realised I could keep playing a hobby, but not so much keep zoology a hobby, so I switched courses. However, I couldn't just give up the Viola so have kept it up and continue to have lessons.
I managed the Leeds University Union Symphony Orchestra in 2017-18, leading rehearsals and organising a highly successful tour to Paris. When I was still at school, I helped out the teachers at my local music centre, Youth Music Centre in Hampstead Garden Suburb. I have been deputising in shows/concerts for some time now - from Southgate Symphony Orchestra to Leeds University Union Stage Musical Society.
It's not long ago that I had viola lessons so I know what the important bits are in a lesson. I saw a few teachers before I found a teacher who really understood how I learn and how to make my lessons enjoyable (yes, even scales!). I am happy to understand what the pupil wants to achieve, work around their aims whilst keeping the lessons fun and enjoyable! I am happy to teach ABRSM/Trinity grades.
