Teaching Info

Anna enjoys teaching  Flute to people of any age from beginner to advanced level on the Flute. She also teaches beginner recorder and piano. She has a 6 month old baby and also has experience in Early Childhood  education and nannying giving her a passion for teaching the very young beginner.

Anna likes to help students have a strong foundation in tone and technique, and will put children through exams to an advanced level if they wish. Her main priority is that students enjoy playing the flute, 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, student orchestras,  duets and chamber music.
