I specialise in Cello (Classical), Singing (both Classical & Music Theatre), and Music Theory for beginners to those wanting to take ABRSM examinations up to and including Grade 5.
I offer a fantastic musical experience whether you are a beginner or have played/sung for some time. I teach both children and adults.
I engage in Music making whilst ensuring you are learning notation, sight reading, aural and theory.
My lessons provide a sound basis in music, learning and performance; whilst building your confidence in your music ability.
I teach from my home in Leicester and a studio flat in Bilton, Rugby. I also teach in two schools in Warwickshire; Bilton C of E Junior School & Dassett Primary School; and in a school in Leicester-Overdale Junior School.

Helping Children to find their focus & confidence through music, particularly singing.

Gail is an inspirational teacher who motivates pupils to learn music through both Classical and modern approaches.
Gail uses an individual approach to her teaching and establishes relationships with her pupils through helping them to build their confidence and belief in their musical ability. An example being where Gail encouraged and enabled one pupil, within six months, to sit her theory grade 2 examination and pass with room to spare; a paper that was failed once in the past (under a previous tutor).
Gail pursued a career in humanitarian work after her schooling, where she developed skills in taking initiative in extreme contexts; encouraging others experiencing great hardships; & inspiring & motivating others in their work. Through her Charity sector career Gail always had a passion for music & had the opportunity in Brazil to use music to help teach English to children aged 5 to 13 years from poor socioeconomic backgrounds, leading them to perform English Songs at the end of her placement.
This experience stayed with Gail and along with her Career in the Charity Sector where she gained relationship building, training & managing skills.
