Information About Vikki - Hitchin teacher - (3 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Vikki:
I live in Hitchin and happy to travel for local students.
I am passionate about clarinet and also a keen pianist. I played in the Hertfordshire Concert Band for 10 years and have recently joined Hitchin Concert Band, which holds regular concerts for the public. I played clarinet in the East Herts Concert Band for four years and have also been part of numerous woodwind ensembles and clarinet choirs.
Please note fees are priced at an hourly rate however I recommend 45 minute lessons which I charge a fee of £22.
I have offered one-to-one tutoring since 2014 & have provided additional support to school teaching for students working towards graded exams as well as casual lessons for those who enjoy learning new music & want to develop their skills.
My primary instrument is clarinet to which I can teach to grade 6, or provide additional support for students working towards grade 7 and 8. My secondary instrument is piano which I can teach to beginners.
In my experience the most effective method of learning is to play as part of an ensemble or duet. This tests the player's ability to keep in time and listen to other players. I also think this is an enjoyable way of learning, which is the key to effective learning.
I like to deal with challenging passages through repetition, breaking down the passage into manageable chunks and using varying tempos. I also believe building up stamina is important in order to develop tone and master control of the instrument. However, what I believe is most important is the way in which the student wishes to learn as this will provide an enjoyable learning experience which then can be used in the student's own practice time.
