Information About Miles - Glossop teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Miles:
Miles offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
I was introduced to the clarinet at the age of 7 and it has been a part of my life ever since. I've played in numerous ensembles including youth ensembles, wind bands, orchestras, chamber groups, and also as a soloist. I have a very broad interest in music, from classical right through to jazz and popular music. I play what I enjoy and urge anyone who I teach to do the same.
I am a member of the Alderley Edge Orchestra and the Musical Director of Altrincham Concert Orchestra and Congleton Youth Orchestra.
I have taught clarinet (and theory) for over 15 years. I teach all ages and have taken on beginners still at primary school to adult learners at 70+. I've successfully helped many students work towards and pass graded exams.
My aim is to introduce my pupils to the world of playing music together. Once we've covered the basics we can play duets/trios and look for ensembles in the local area to play with. I want to make lessons fun and I want the music choices to really inspire to encourage as much home practicing as possible. I try and understand the aims of each student whether this be to learn their favourite piece, play with others, or pass an exam. This means I have to adapt my approach to each individual.
I also have a flexible approach to my lessons. The first lesson is free with no obligation and I can advise on the purchase of your first clarinet if you don't yet have one.
