My name is Shona and I am an instrumental and vocal tutor based in Leeds. I offer tuition in classical piano, voice and violin, as well as in contemporary/jazz voice.
I have been a musician myself for over 15 years and some of my own experience includes: over 5 years as singer/pianist at The Marine Hotel in Whitby; playing at weddings and events; receiving an adjudicator's award at The Great North Big Band Jazz Festival for my vocal performance with the Newcastle University Jazz Orchestra; majoring in performance at Newcastle University and performing a final recital of original material; having my original songs played on BBC York and BBC Tees; 2 years as lead violin for Scarborough Area Youth Symphony Orchestra; 3 years playing in the North Yorkshire County Youth Orchestra; supported Natalie Holmes on the Manchester date of her 2017 UK tour; played at JoeFest and Hive Festival in Summer 2017.
Having been a tutor since the age of 17, I have experience in working with pupils of varying ages, abilities and styles. I have taught children as young as 5 up to adults in their 40s. I currently teach a whole range of pupils who working on a variety of goals - some are aiming for Grade exams which I am guiding them through, some are just learning for fun, some are hoping to build performance confidence.
It is very important to me that the needs of the individual are met - both in learning content and learning style. I ensure that both myself and the student understand the goals they would like to achieve and a time frame to aim for. While some people may wish to move through exams, others may want to improve confidence, and others may want to learn simply for fun. I welcome all reasons for wanting to learn an instrument or sing!
