I teach flute, fife, recorder,
piano and music theory
and I offer lessons in Cheltenham, Stroud
I offer music lessons to all levels of ability
from beginners up to grade 8
and I teach a wide range of ages...
(but it's never too late!)
I love to teach creatively
and I aim to make music lessons
as fun and as interesting
Why not book a trial lesson?
I offer lessons
at Holly Tree Melody in Cheltenham,
in Stroud and also online.
I find that
patience and positivity
aspects of teaching,
whatever the age and standard of the student.
My aim is
for people to leave
their lesson smiling
and with a sense of achievement!
For my younger pupils
I aim to keep the lessons fun, creative and varied.
I have a collection of reward stickers which boost the morale (and decorate the music books).
The toughest pieces to learn will always be
surrounded by extra
I enjoy working with rhythm and music reading games and I tailor these to each individual.
For my teenage and adult pupils:
Whatever their reason for having music lessons
and however focused we may be
on achievements, grades and goals,
I firmly believe that our lessons and their practice at home should be
their time away from work and the every day pressures.
Many of my teenage pupils tell me that their music
helps them with homework and revision.
I have adult pupils who say they feel refreshed after practising
and ready to get back to work / the to do list / life.
It's good to take breaks
and we do know that
music is good for us!
I don't follow a set lesson plan
and I don't have
a standard way of teaching,
just because each pupil is different
and to an extent,
each pupil leads me.
Vouchers for lessons
You could give a lesson
- or a set of lessons -
as a gift to someone
with a love for music
or a dream to try the flute, fife
The vouchers don't expire and they can book their own lessons
as and when they like.
