Information About Georgia - Lewes teacher
This is how 4 referees rated Georgia:
I am additionally a music therapist and enjoy composing music and singing. I like most styles of music and love to sit down at the piano and see what comes out. It's a great place to express oneself! I love singing whilst I play and I sometimes perform at gatherings.
I have taught a lot of children over the years and helped them through exams. I have also taught children on the spectrum and helped them learn music reading skills. I have a background in primary school teaching. Some learners, particularly adults are happy not to be taking exams (!) and I enjoy helping people access the music they want to play. I teach online or travel to people's houses.
I teach the reading of music notation and I also encourage learners to experience playing by ear and making up bits and pieces for themselves as I think this is a great way in to "getting on the inside" of the music and gives a different experience of reading notes from the stave. I also help people to get started with simple chords by ear so they can start playing songs they like. I am good at motivating learners and most people progress well as I encourage people to play things they like. I also like introducing learners to new styles, such as Jazz if they have focussed mainly on classical. I like the pieces in ABRSM books, as they always provide a really varied diet. I find most learners are visual or aural or kinaesthetic in style or a combination and it's important to respect and understand how each individual learns. My training as a music therapist comes in handy here.
