Information About Elinor - Ongar teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Elinor:
I am a musician and artist based in Essex. I am currently working in a jazz function band, teaching and selling paintings online. I have played in many different bands over the years and have a lot of teaching experience (detailed below). I have a degree in jazz performance from middlesex university and therefore have a high level of theoretical knowledge and composition skills, as well as flute technique. Contrary to many musicians I actually enjoy teaching music since it gives me the opportunity to share the knowledge that I have gained. (references available on request)
I've been teaching the flute for 14 years. For 10 years I taught folk workshops to 6-21 year olds at many different folk festivals throughout the summer time. As part of this work I attended regular teacher training weekends. I have been teaching private one to one lessons for 5 years to all ages and abilities. In my private lessons I have taught jazz, folk, classical and music theory. As part of my jazz degree I did a teaching module that required me to study teaching and run workshops for special needs children.
I specialise in jazz and folk music but am happy to teach the classical grades. I believe that students learn more quickly when the lessons are enjoyable and interesting to them. One of the ways I achieve this is by transcribing and teaching the music that the students like listening to. Regardless of the genre that the student decides to study there are some general basics that I usually focus on first, these include flute technique, the development of general musical skills such as rhythm, basic music theory and the ability to play without the aid of written music. I like to make sure that my students fully understand what they have learned and can repeat it with ease. Every lesson I teach is tailored to the individual student depending on what their musical goals are and on their current ability level.
