Jane Parsons


As a qualified teacher teacher and performer I have been working in the Salisbury area since the early 1990s, and am now the Chair of  Directors of Salisbury Area Music Co-operative.

Although principally a cellist, through extensive professional development I have expanded my instrumental teaching to include violin, viola and double bass. As well as individual and group tuition, I run very successful First Access string and recorder programmes, and practical and engaging lessons for EYFS and KS1 children called Start the Music! which is also part of my work with Salisbury Area Young Musicians.

I feel that I bring energy and enthusiasm to my teaching and I really enjoy the variety of my work; individual to whole class lessons, ages 4-18, beginner to advanced pupils.


What I / we help young people achieve

In performance management observations my teaching has been graded as 'outstanding' and I strive to maintain this standard of work through continued professional development and reflective practice. My teaching is child centred and I has a range of approaches and teaching materials/pieces to engage and motivate every child, whether they want to do grade examinations or play their favourite pieces. Over many years my pupils have gone on to study music at university, or continued to play in orchestras after they leave school. Whatever their future holds I hope to have instilled in them a life long enjoyment of music making.
