Personal Description:

Her works have been programmed as part of LSO Discovery, the Presteigne Festival, the Royal Opera House ‘Exposure’ Series, the Leeds International Concert Season, the European Capital of Culture Concert Series, the Aldeburgh Festival and during services at St Paul’s and St Alban’s Cathedrals. Several works have been broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

Elizabeth won a British Composer Award (2009, Making Music Category) for her orchestral piece The Serious Side of Madness. Other competition successes include first prize in the 2015 Orion Orchestra Composer Competition and first prize in the Liverpool Capital of Culture New Composer Competition. She recently received funding from The Composers’ Fund to support the creation of a composition studio.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching private pupils of all ages and abilities for nearly 20 years, starting out when I was still an undergraduate. I have a first class honours degree in music, a master’s degree in composition and I am also a qualified teacher (Primary PGCE).

I offer lessons for adults and children in piano, recorder, viola, violin (up to grade 5), theory and composition. I have an 100% pass rate in both theory and practical exams (ABRSM), with the majority of students gaining merits or distinction grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer lessons to students of all ages and abilities and particularly enjoy working with beginners. I offer lessons to children from age 4 and up, although with younger children especially, some pre-instrumental musical training is usually necessary before starting more formal lessons. This creates a gentle, but structured, approach to beginning to play an instrument and will ensure that they can make good progress in the early stages. Adult beginners are also most welcome and lessons can be tailored to work towards a particular goal.

Many of my pupils are successful in graded music exams, however others prefer to learn for their own enjoyment. All I ask is that you have your own instrument to practise on and are willing to commit to regular lessons - and regular practice! Younger children will only be required to practice for a short period each day (for example 10 minutes). This will instill the habit of regular practice, which will increase with age and/if they wish to enter for grade exams.

Lessons can be weekly, fortnightly, or even monthly - depending on the needs of the individual student. The length of a lesson ranges from 30 minutes for younger beginners to 1 hour for more advanced students. For students preparing for ABRSM exams, 45 minutes is the optimum lesson time.

I also offer one off lessons or a series of lessons leading to a particular goal, for example an exam. I offer coaching for theory exams, including ARBSM grade 5 theory.

I enjoy teaching composition students of all ages and abilities - GCSE/A level students to advanced.

At the moment, I am offering ONLINE LESSONS ONLY due to Covid. However, I am reviewing this on a weekly basis and hope to be offering face to face lessons again shortly. Please contact me for more information as it may be possible to get started online, or register your interest for face to face lessons in the near future.
