Recorder Tuition

I have a busy private teaching practice at my studio in West London, and am always delighted to hear from potential new students. Over the past 6 years I have taught a wide selection of pupils, from the ages of 5 to 84, and enjoy teaching both adults and children, from beginner through to Grade 8 and beyond.

I do my utmost to tailor my teaching style to each of my students individually. I believe that each student has different strengths and needs, and that the real purpose in learning a musical instrument is to enjoy the process and to achieve high standards alongside through a genuine appreciation of musical language and theory. I have had several years of experience teaching to exam requirements, and regularly submit my students for ABRSM examinations (or similar) with great success. However, many of my students simply learn for fun, and it is equally satisfying to see their progress as the years go by.

I charge £45 per hour, but my rates are flexible depending on location. I am able to travel to teach within West London, depending on distance; if this requires travel outside Zone 2, I simply add a small travel charge to my hourly rate.

If you would like to organise a trial lesson with me, I would be delighted to hear from you - please contact me.

Group Coaching/Masterclasses

My husband (harpsichordist Thomas Allery) and I are also available for group coaching and Early Music masterclasses within London and the South-East. We are also very happy to host ensemble coaching sessions at our studio in West London, where a single manual harpsichord by Alan Gotto (2016) is available for use by our students.
