I am always striving to:
*Inspire students to develop a strong connection with their instrument
*Help them to express musically
*Help them to have a deep appreciation and love of music
I take the time to assess the individual student’s needs, as no two are the same, whether it be temperament, musical preference, or intelligence.
I have a wide range of worksheets that I have developed myself to address particular aspects of oboe playing to suit the particular needs of the individual student.
I play along side the student frequently, as I find the he/she quickly matches my playing style, tuning and phrasing. Far better that way than by giving dry verbal instruction.
I have a wide range of repertoire at my fingertips to inspire the student.
I am set-up to make good quality recordings of my students, to aid learning and as a record of achievement for parent and student.
I am an expert reed-maker, and can teach the student the skills to do it themselves. I can also supply custom-made reeds to suit each player.
In conclusion, for me, it is all about the playing and finding the joy in the music, and expressing that through this wonderful instrument.
