Personal Description:

Hi, I'm Serena and I am a strings player and tutor. I enjoy listening to and playing any style of music from Classical to Symphonic Metal and Pop! I am also an arranger, so I am able to come up with music for students based on their interests and level. I have gigged in orchestras and bands for years, so I can also help students on a performance level if that's what they are looking for.

I love music as a universal language and form of expression. I feel that it is very valuable in a therapeutic and developmental sense, due to the opportunity it gives people to show their emotions, while also developing coordination, listening skills, music reading, and concentration.

Tutoring Experience:

I teach music to all ages from toddlers to adults. I have been a tutor for Leeds City College BTEC in music performance since 2013, which covers band work, industry skills, composition, music theory, and music history.

I also am the strings tutor in the Target program of Leeds Junior Conservatoire, where I teach 9 - 14-year-olds instrumental tuition alongside musicianship skills.

In the past, I have also done some outreach work with a creative arts charity, where we taught music in a holistic way, to young people with special educational needs.

I have a PTTLs qualification in teaching and training from the National Autistic Society.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very much led by the student in terms of how I approach teaching them, as everybody needs slightly different approaches and have varied goals.

I like to keep things light with musical games to teach theory and the fundamentals of the instrument, where appropriate. While I am happy to help students to achieve music grades, I am also aware that this isn't for everybody, and we can come up with different goals together.

I believe that music should be fun and approached in a curious way, we do call it 'playing' an instrument for a reason!
