Information About Emma - York teacher
This is how 4 referees rated Emma:
I have been playing the flute for over 25 years and have played with York Symphony Orchestra, York opera orchestra, Jorvik G&S society and am currently principal flute in Thirsk Sinfonia. I also played in a world music /improvisory band - quite a different experience from orchestral playing - gigging around Yorkshire.
I have taught in primary and secondary schools, as well as many adults over the last 12 years. I teach beginners up to grade 8 on the flute, and up to grade 5 on the piano. I have worked with a range of abilities, from people with prior musical expertise to people with no experience of playing instruments who have found a sudden interest later in life. I have a flute that can be hired so you can decide if it is the right instrument for you. I have worked with people right up to diploma level and am particularly skilled in helping you get the best tone from your instrument.
My approach to teaching is very relaxed and specific to each individual. We will discuss how you like to learn and what you'd like to play. If you wish to take exams, I use ABRSM exam board, but I am equally happy for you to learn without any exam pressure. Enjoyment is at the centre of my approach and I believe vital for progress.
