At the moment my students range from age 7 beginners, age 10 intermediate students to adult students of all levels. My star pupil for 2014 is an adult beginner who has reach a grade 3 standard in less than a year... well done Julie D, I'm very proud of you.
Do you have a personal message for students?
Learning an instrument MUST be fun but it also takes a lot of hard work. I will always give my best and expect my students to practice regularly and give their best back during lessons.
