Personal Description:

Qualifications include PGCE (UCL Institute of Education) and BMus First Class with Honours (King's College London). Genesis Sixteen alumni, freelance singer/cellist, and Music Teacher with Choral Specialism at the North London Collegiate School in Stanmore. I also offer academic music tuition, including tutoring for the Edexcel GCSE Music course, and Kodaly Method training to Intermediate standard.

I am a positive and enthusiastic teacher, keen to share my passion for musical excellence with my pupils. My love of music-making was first realised when I heard the cello teacher at my Primary practising in the school hall when I was nine years old. I was amazed how one person's sound could fill such a large space! I quickly started lessons with that teacher and have never looked back.

As well as an experienced cellist (both as a soloist and and orchestral player), I now sing professionally with numerous choirs across London and Yorkshire.

My musical abilities have taken me all over the world, including Venice, Paris, Gibraltar, Milan and Hong Kong. The performing arts can open so many new doors for people, and now I want to make even more students aware that these opportunities exist.

Tutoring Experience:

I currently work part time as a classroom music teacher and choral director at an independent girls' school in Stanmore. Whilst I love this occupation, due to the large class sizes, I miss being able to really get to know my students and what makes them tick as unique musicians. It is for this reason that I would now like to take on more private pupils.

As a private teacher, I have so far worked with students aged 9-25, with very positive feedback. For example:

'A committed teacher, Lindsey comes to her classes thoroughly prepared. She is very attentive to my needs and has accurately identified several of my vocal issues. Not only has she provided me with effective solutions in a short amount of time and in a fun and imaginative way, but she has also encouraged and inspired me to be more musical and expressive with my voice.' - Helene, singing pupil (2015)

Tutoring Approach:

***PLEASE NOTE: if you are seeking cello lessons, you must be able to provide your own instrument. If you are seeking piano lessons to take place at your home, you must own a piano or good quality keyboard***

My approach to music tuition is all about striking that balance between having fun and making a rewarding amount of progress. There is absolutely no point in playing a musical instrument if the experience does not bring you joy, but at the same time we must realise that nothing worthwhile is ever without its challenges, and this is true of instrumental tuition.

All too often, students come to me for the first time, complaining that they can't seem to fix a particular section of music, despite having played the piece over and over again at home. The reason they are making no progress is because they have been practising their mistake, rather than fixing it! We must learn to be musical doctors, diagnosing the root of each problem we have, so that we can fix it as quickly and easily as possible. Once students come to realise this, their music practice immediately becomes less daunting - and much more fun!
