Instrumental Music Teaching
For nine years I have been teaching children and adults of all ages how to make music and play instruments. I first set up my own teaching business in 2007, and since then have been employed by numerous agencies, educational institutions and music clubs. I design my own lesson plans, get involved with school performances, and liaison with parents frequently in order to make the experience as fulfilling as possible for the students.
