Teacher Info

Hi there! My name is Emma, and I am a music teacher based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire.

I currently offer online music tuition for clarinet, flute, recorder, and saxophone for beginners up to advanced students, with a view to continue ‘in person’ lessons at a Sheffield music shop in September 2020 (as long as it is safe to do so!).

I have enjoyed teaching pupils since my first position as a volunteer woodwind tutor (at a West Yorkshire music hub during my music degree). Whilst completing my PGCE in Secondary Music with Specialist Instrumental Teaching, I was taught to teach music ‘musically’, and to teach music through various means; in my woodwind lessons, I aim to include conventional note reading and playing, duets/ensemble playing, improvisation, and composition to encourage my students to become well-rounded musicians.

During my PGCE and NQT years, I have been able to ascertain what is required by exam boards for GCSE music, so I can offer tuition to help with the listening, analysis, and elements of the composition projects students are asked to complete. Send me a message to see how I can help you with your studies!

With ABRSM theory, I have been offering ‘pit-stop’ lessons for grade 5 theory candidates; these are for parts of the theory paper for which they need additional instruction. I am now in a position where I can offer a set of lessons to work through each task which they are required to complete in the exam paper. Send me a message for more information and to find out what style of lesson would work best for you!

Whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced player, exam driven or learning just for fun, do not hesitate to contact me to see how I can help you!

Happy playing!

Emma has taught me for the past year now and I have really enjoyed each lesson we have: she makes sure that I get a fair amount of constructive comments each week along with positive comments about what I am playing to boost my confidence. She gives me a wide variety of pieces to play – from swing, to latin and classical and has really helped me improve on my technique and interpretation of the pieces.

I’ve learnt a lot with Emma. She also makes the lesson fun at the same time as learning. I definitely recommend her as a teacher.

Emma’s positive and encouraging style of teaching has brought my daughter’s playing on in leaps and bounds and has done wonders for her overall confidence. We love her and thoroughly recommend her.
