About the Business
I have always loved music and I can remember wanting to learn the piano from a very young age. I started having piano lessons aged 6 years.

At aged 17, I took up the flute and took my grade 8 after only 18 months of learning. I went to London to study music at the London College of Music with flute as my first study and piano as my second study. I studied flute with Ann Cherry and piano with Chris Fry and after 3 years of studying, I achieved two diplomas and a degree in music.

I have 30 years’ experience of teaching music from my home and 15 years’ experience teaching woodwind and piano in schools. I have taught in primary, middle and secondary schools.

My love of music also includes playing and teaching saxophone and the clarinet. I also love to sing and was a member of the Bournemouth Symphony Chorus for 17 years. I am currently a member of the Bournemouth Bach Choir.

Flute Lessons

Flute Lessons

Learning music integrates multiple skills at the same time. Research has shown that children who learn musical instruments do better all round in other subjects. Children who learn to play an instrument develop increased co-ordination, sound discrimination and become better at fine motor tasks.

Learning music teaches discipline and perseverance. It enhances pattern recognition and concentration and inspires motivation. Through playing a musical instrument, children and adults learn to express themselves and develop a strong sense of well being. All of these skills help to build confidence and self esteem.

I believe that the lessons should be enjoyable and put students at ease; allowing them to work to their full potential. It is important to have your own flute at home to practise on. I can give advice about good makes of flute and sometimes I know of second hand flutes for sale.

I have a friendly and flexible teaching style which instils confidence in my pupils. I teach in a mainly classical style but also popular and light music.
