This is how 3 referees rated Emma:
I am a graduate of the Newcastle Folk Degree and I'm now based in Ayrshire. I have been playing the fiddle for 15 years and the clarsach (celtic harp) for 13 years. Since then I have become an accomplished player of traditional music. I attended the RCS Junior Academy when I was younger where I developed my technique and ability greatly. In 2007, I won the North Ayrshire Traditional Musician of the year. Throughout my years of training in music, I have been taught by many great players of Scottish music including Catriona MacDonald and Patsy Reid.
I have a great deal of experience in performing. As part of a traditional group I was involved in as a teenager, I performed gigs in Sweden, Spain, France and Slovenia. I have performed at many big venues and events around the UK including King Tuts in Glasgow, The Cavern Club in Liverpool and The Sage Gateshead, amongst others.
I have been teaching music for 10 years now in various environments including private tuition and leading and assisting in group workshops at festivals. I have received a lot of praise from those I work with for my teaching skills and I seek to help each person I teach to reach their full potential.
I have been teaching one to one lessons for both adults and children for around 3 years. Throughout my time teaching privately I have been praised for my friendly and patient approach to teaching and helping all of my pupils to overcome issues in their playing.
I am a regular fiddle tutor at both the Cambridge Folk Festival and Sidmouth Folk Week in England. At these festivals, I teach fiddle workshops to a range of ages and abilities which often lead to a showcase performance. I teach beginner fiddle to kids and adults and have also lead a 'learning by ear' workshop to adults. I have also initiated and lead my own fiddle workshop at the Marymass Folk Festival in Irvine and taught in harp workshops for beginners.
I have a wealth of experience and knowledge in teaching music which I further developed at university through modules which were specifically about music teaching.
I seek to always provide the best possible service to my pupils and for me that means catering to meet each individual pupils needs. I am an experienced and friendly teacher who has worked with a range of ages and abilities. I can help with learning tunes, technical ability and learning by ear on both fiddle and the clarsach. I seek to work on music which the tutee is interested in, whether that be folk, blues or pop - I am happy to help! I also help my tutees to read music - if that is something they are interested in.
If you would like some more information on the services I offer, please do not hesitate to contact me.
