My pupils learn in individual lessons and in small mixed-age groups. The groups are an extension of their private classes. Children learn from and inspire each other to stand up and perform. This, in turn, boosts self-confidence, which they carry with them into the rest of their lives. They also form lasting friendships and have positive role models among their peers.
Once they learn to produce good intonation and sound, I go on to teach sight-reading, music theory and introduce them to playing in chamber groups and orchestras. At the end of each term I hold an enjoyable, informal concert for families and friends.
