I have been teaching in Wiltshire for over 20 years. I am a French Horn specialist, although I have taught all brass to Grade 8 standard. I regularly coach students in numerous youth orchestras and wind bands. My own experience as a freelance French Horn player is diverse, ranging from soloist to orchestral; operas to shows.
What I / we help young people achieve
I always encourage my students to enjoy their music making. I actively encourage them to join an ensemble as this is where they can gain a wealth of education whilst enjoying their playing. To be proficient and competent musicians on their chosen instrument . A skill they can take with them beyond education into the rest of their lives.
