Information About Emma - Sheffield teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Emma:
I specialise in teaching classical guitar, as well as music theory, and I'm looking for new students with whom I can share my enthusiasm for the instrument and its music.
As well as teaching guitar privately I've worked as a graduate teaching assistant in the philosophy department at Sheffield University between 2015 and 2019, and as a lecturer in 2017. I'm also an active musician around Sheffield, in particular within the folk music scene here.
"Emma is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and instructive teacher. She is always encouraging and a great source of positivity when you are struggling with something." - Steve
"Emma is an excellent teacher! I knew nothing in guitar and she has not only shown me how to play some songs, but encouraged my own exploration of the instrument by explaining how different sounds fit together in a general way. Like music theory I suppose, but in a fun and practical way that inspires me to push forward on my own genuine journey with guitar. She is patient and perceptive and gives very helpful advice, as well as being a fun, relaxed person to spend time with. I enjoy every one of our sessions and am very grateful for her inspiring me musically. :)" - Sabina
As well as all the obvious 'technical' stuff, I offer lessons with a focus on self-direction - my goal is to help players set and achieve their own goals, develop their own understanding of how to interpret and relate to the music they are playing, and decide on a programme that will enable them to really enjoy what they are doing. I welcome both children and adults, at any level of ability.
