Information About Lisa - Stroud teacher
Originally from Leicestershire I was awarded an undergraduate scholarship to study bassoon at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London , from where I graduated in 1989 with a G.G.S.M. diploma. At Guildhall I was taught by Graham Sheen, Meyrick Alexander, John Orford, Robin O'Neill and Ian Cuthill. I am now a freelance bassoonist working in the South West of England.
I also publish wind quintet and bassoon quartet arrangements ( Press: **Web Address Removed**). I sell music right around the world and a number of my publications have been broadcast on radio and television and also released on CD. June Emerson and Howarths are my main UK stockists.
Together with teaching at home I taught bassoon at the High School of Glasgow from 2005 until leaving Scotland in 2016. Whilst there I had pupils there aged from 7-18. I have also taught at Clifton College and Clifton High School, in Bristol and The King's School, Canterbury. I regularly enter pupils for Trinity Guildhall exams, although taking exams is certainly not essential!!
Many of my pupils progress right through to Grade 8 and a number have successfully auditioned for the National Youth Orchestras of Scotland (NYOS) and Junior Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS).
Learning music should be fun and I work hard to build on my pupils' enthusiasm. I invariably use my bassoon to demonstrate to pupils as I feel that this is a crucially important part of the learning process. Lessons for beginners to Grade 5 are usually 30 minutes long - more advanced pupils may require longer lessons.
I also have piano grade 8 which means that I can play the simpler accompaniments and aural tests .
