Information About Judith - Bromsgrove teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Judith:
Having played the flute since the age of 11, I continued my study of music at The University of Manchester. There, I studied the flute with Helen Wilson and played in symphony orchestra, chamber orchestra, and a number of smaller ensembles including the No Dice collective. I also performed assessed solo performance recitals, where I played repertoire including Franck, Oliver Knussen and Takemitsu. I am therefore confident in extended flute techniques, should you be wishing to explore these in lessons and take your playing beyond standard repertoire.
I continue to play and teach, and currently play in the National Flute Orchestra - although I do not work full time in music, I still keep my passion alive by playing in other ensembles where invited and I also play in a trio which performs locally.
Having graduated, I now work full time as a project manager, however I still teach in my free time (weekends and evenings). I can be very flexible with my availability, and am happy to teach from my home in Bromsgrove, or from your home.
I am happy to teach children from as young as 7, and should they be to small for a full sized flute, I have an apprentice flute that you can hire for £10 per month until they have got big enough to play a full sized flute. In addition to this, I have a spare full sized flute that you can also hire from me for £10 per month if you would like to give playing the flute a go, but do not wish to commit to purchasing a flute yourself before trying lessons first.
I have a current DBS check.

I have taught flute privately for 6 years, and have taught both adults and children from beginner right through to grade 5. I am confident at teaching to the ABRSM syllabus and am also confident to teach grade 5 theory. Whilst at university, I continued to teach adults externally, and fellow students.
I have taken a number of pupils successfully though ABRSM exams, and I always ensure that I prepare pupils fully for the exam (including sight reading and aural tests).
Recently, in response to a pupil desiring a chance to perform with an audience, I collaborated with another flute teacher to organise a concert for all of our pupils to perform their pieces. This was well received by parents and performers alike, and I'm looking to organise this twice a year, as I believe that performance practice from an early stage is a key part in musical development.
I have an adaptable approach to music tuition depending on the pupil's age, experience, and confidence. I am recognised for my ability to inspire confidence in my pupils, and I always ensure that the pupil feels comfortable and is enjoying learning the flute and playing music.
I find that playing duets with my pupils helps them to gain an early sense of musicality and communication in performance, and I am also confident to accompany on the piano during lessons (if a little bit rough around the edges!) to encourage an early acknowledgement of how the flute interacts with the accompaniment.
