Teaching Info

Anna enjoys teaching  Flute to people of any age from beginner to advanced level on the Flute. She has taught up to grade 8 level on flute. She also teaches recorder and Piano from beginner to intermediate level ( up to approx grade 5 level)

Anna likes to help students have a strong foundation in tone and technique, and will put children through trinity exams to an advanced level if they wish.  She has experience putting children through exams on flute and they have received excellent results. Anna is also happy to put children through piano exams if they wish. Her main priority is that students enjoy playing their instrument, and she  does not put pressure on children to do exams if they do not want to. But she will encourage confidence building through performance opportunities in the form of student concerts and duets.

 

Testimonial for Anna Prasannan( From Liam- A year 13 grade 7 level student who learnt off Anna for 7 years.) Thankyou so much for being the best flute teacher ever! You are a wonderful teacher. You are a credit to your students and it has been an honour to be taught by you. I have been your student for a long time and it has been a great time. Your patience and kindness never fails to amaze me. Over the years I have had lessons several other flute teachers but I always come back to you. You have helped me grow and learn and I would not be the person I am today without you. You've especially been supportive of me while I learn to cope with my chronic pain, thankyou for your consistent understanding. You are friendly and warm hearted. Your passion towards music is infectious and you make learning flute fun and exciting. Along with your extensive knowledge, your compassion and enthusiasm make you a brilliant person and teacher. I will continue to find joy in playing flute and I have no plans to stop. My love for music has been a gift from you that will stay with me for the rest of my life. Please use this letter as a resounding endorsement of your teaching. Thankyou for every lesson and thankyou for your support, Liam
