Information About Hayley - Bishop's Stortford teacher - (5 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Hayley:
In 2013 I graduated from the University of Chichester with a music performance with instrumental and vocal teaching BA(Hons) degree. In 2014 I completed a PGCE course to become a primary school teacher. I am a very flexible teacher and I work everything around my pupils. I have also just completed a masters in education.
I have gained my grade 8 in flute classical and jazz, alto saxophone classical and jazz and oboe classical and I am taking my flute ATCL diploma very soon.
I am also CRB checked
I started teaching flute and alto saxophone lessons five years ago. In this time my pupils have all passed all their exams.
With my university course being a performing course as well as a teaching course, I have gained a large insight into different teaching techniques which many teachers may not even think about.
My main aim is to make music lessons fun and enjoyable while making learning not feel like learning at all. I feel that by being a younger teacher it allows me to be able to communicate much easier with my pupils, allowing an excellent friendship and working relationship to form.
I have had my fair share of (lower than average) music teachers, which has allowed me to see exactly how not to teach!
I take any ideas and thoughts from my pupils on board and let them have as much say and choice in the lessons as possible.
I cover all styles of music unless my pupils decide they dislike something. If this happens I tailor the lessons to suite them as much as possible.
I do not feel that exams are essential but they are something to aim for, so again I leave this decision to my pupils, I simply say when they are ready to take them. I prepare pupils for ABRSM and Trinity Guildhall exams, once again the choice is always left to my pupils!
If you do not have a flute or saxophone you are welcome to use mine for the first couple of lessons, until you are sure that the lessons are going to be continued. After this it is easy to hire an instrument or buy a new one or a second hand one.
