Hello! I'm Izzie, a postgraduate student at the Royal Northern College of Music. I specialise in clarinet, saxophone, piano and music theory tutoring. I love making music and believe that learning should be a fun and rewarding experience. Music has so many benefits and I love seeing students grow in confidence as well as ability. Adult learners are more than welcome - my motto is 'it's never too late to learn an instrument!'
I have led a range of music groups and workshops both for children and adult learners, and I have tutored younger students in music theory exams. I have extensive experience of working with children and young adults - for example, this past summer I worked as a leader on the National Citizenship Service programme for 16-17 year-olds. I love working with all age-groups and abilities, and I hold an up-to-date DBS certificate.
My first priority is that the student is actively involved and enthusiastic about their learning. Whether you are pursuing music as a hobby or a future career path, I use a range of lesson plans and approaches to suit your needs and interests. This might mean adapting a bit of your favourite film music, jamming along to a jazz record and learning to improvise 12-bar blues, or perfecting that wonderful Mozart.
For music theory students, I like to go beyond what is required of the ABRSM theory grades and teach useful skills you might need in the future, such as transposition, chord progressions and even a little bit of composition.
Do get in touch - I'd love to hear what you'd like to do, and shape your lessons around that!

She has quickly engaged our son and maintained his enthusiasm through her style of tutoring. He actually enjoys practicing his sax playing which is a revelation.
