This last year I gained a position teaching voice at DS Music School in Monmouth where I have gained >20 pupils ranging from total beginners to onstage performers, from the ages of 8 up to people in their late 70's. I have a love for outreach in musical education, which allows me to share a passion for music to large groups of children hoping to inspire them into taking up an instrument themselves. In 2018 I worked alongside the British Art Council as a member of the BBC National Chorus of Wales teaching school children languages through the aid of rhythm and song.
I have a strong belief that all students learn differently so I aim to adapt my explanation and instruction to the student's age, ability, and overall knowledge. I aim to make the student feel comfortable in letting go and just allowing themselves to have faith in their abilities, especially in younger students.
I never force any students into just doing graded examinations, especially young children. I believe that music should never become a chore and I want my students to want to do exams out of the love of singing and performing, it is at this stage that students have a better drive to learn and improve.
