My aim is that all of my students enjoy learning to play the flute. I will make a lesson plan that best suits your needs as a player & we will improve your playing together.

My lessons will be built around your needs as a player & together we will learn to play the music that you love and are familiar with. I'm an experienced performer & this is something that allows me to help my students gain more confidence in their own ability.

My Experience as a Teacher

I am a qualified and experienced flute teacher based in Oxfordshire. I have been teaching for a number of years, people of all ages and abilities. My approach to lessons is to make them enjoyable and fun with a relaxed manner whilst at the same time pushing the students to reach their full potential.

All lessons are tailored to the needs of the individual, ranging from total beginners to graded examinations with all the leading examination boards such as ABRSM & Trinity. Although exams are not essential I am happy to teach popular pieces and arrangements for flute just for fun and enjoyment.

I am a recent graduate of the Tirana University of Arts where I completed her Bachelor of Music degree in flute performance. In 2018, I was invited to join the National Radio-Television Orchestra of Albania where I performed around the country as a principal flutist and collaborated with highly regarded conductors such as Anna Volchenko, Uwe Theimer, Mateusz Moleda and Noorman Widjaja.

More About My Lessons

Alongside completing my studies, I have participated in many Festivals and summer music academies around Europe and have had masterclasses with distinguished soloists such as Philippe Racine, Ljubisa Jovanovic and Erwin Klambauer.

Learning from the best in the field is my passion and I want to transfer my knowledge and skills to the young generation of flutists here in Oxfordshire. If you would like to book a lesson or have an informal discussion about your goals and aspirations please do not hesitate to get in touch at any time with me.

After getting in touch, I will always work to your schedule & make sure a lesson plan that suits your needs will be created.

Music Shops in Witney

Witney is a small place but has a few great music stores and record shops in the area. Here are a couple I would recommend in the area.

Rapture, is an extensive record shop where you can pick up a wide range of records from classical to rock & pop. There's plenty to give you some much needed inspiration. They can be found at 12, Market Square, Witney OX28 6AP.

Witney Music Rooms, Located at Unit 6, Eagle Industrial Estate, Church Green, Witney OX28 4YR, is the best place to go if you want to rehearse as part of your band/act or just have a large space for practice. They offer large soundproofed rooms for great prices.
