Personal Description:

Ellen currently lives in Manchester but will be moving to Huddersfield in July. She is in Huddersfield a great deal currently so can start now but will be in Yorkshire full-time from July.

Ellen began playing the clarinet at the age of 8. When she was 12 she started receiving lessons from John Cooper at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff for 5 years. Whilst in 6th Form, at Richard Huish College in Taunton, Ellen accomplished Grade 8 Clarinet, Advanced Certificate (both with distinction) and an ABRSM Diploma and in theory she passed both Grade 6 and 8 ABRSM Theory exams with distinctions. She is now in her final year studying clarinet at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester with Antonio Salguero and Christopher Swann. Whilst at the RNCM she has been apart of wind orchestras, symphony orchestras, concert orchestras and an opera orchestra.

Ellen is a member of Prima Wind Quintet whom she plays with regularly. Prima hold regular recitals, there is one in London at St Martins in the Field in June and they are also booked to play at functions for example they played at a Mahler Conference in March. They also do a lot of outreach, introducing wind instruments to the primary schools of Bradford and Stockport.

She loves clarinet, but has a passion for all wind instruments and especially the theory of music. In the holidays she is principle clarinet and a junior member of staff of the Somerset County Youth Orchestra. In the Summer she went with them to Germany on a tour, where she arranged, conducted and lead the woodwind sectionals.

Tutoring Experience:

I currently teach saxophone, clarinet, recorder and flute for the organisation JLGB (Jewish Lads and Girls Brigade). I have 5 pupils there.
I teach a saxophone player and a flute player at their homes.
I have just finished teaching an adult pupil who wanted a few lessons to get them started off.
I assisted a teacher at the Junior department of the Royal Northern College of Music teaching theory for 2 years.

Tutoring Approach:

ENJOYMENT is my priority. When learning anything you should be enjoying yourself, otherwise you are likely to give up having learnt nothing as you don't have the desire or the love. I am very positive about music and I love teaching so much and I hope to inspire that desire to learn, in the way I teach.
