“I made more progress with Kay in my first lesson than I had made in the previous two years”
“Excellent specialist professional flute teacher who understands the technical difficulties associated with playing the flute — she plays beautifully too”
“Kay is a great teacher who got me my grade 1, so I'm happy”
“Kay is an excellent teacher who teaches with patience and cheerfulness—we feel fortunate to have found her. The greatest pleasure of my week is to watch her teach my grand-daughter. It looks such fun!”
“My lessons are something to look forward to and she inspires me to be the best I can. She not only teaches, but teaches me how to practise so that no piece of music is out of my reach. A truly wonderful and talented musician and teacher.”
“Kay is a great teacher!”
—Izzy (aged 7)
I am a professional flute player, teacher and member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians, with over 30 years experience who is available to give professional flute tuition in the centre of Basingstoke, five minutes walk from the main train station.
Having obtained a scholarship to music college and subsequently enjoyed an orchestral career, I now specialise in advanced students and pupils who wish to take their diplomas in teaching and performing having already taken their grade 8. I am able to teach the requirements for the dipABRSM, LRSM and FRSM diplomas, thus enabling my pupils to become qualified teachers and performers themselves.
Some of my pupils have won scholarships to study abroad and in the UK at the Music Conservatoires and have pursued professional careers, others have won scholarships to private school or to play in the National Children’s Youth Orchestra.
I also give lessons to complete beginners and those wishing to take their grades 1-8 on any syllabus and am happy to teach children with special needs. I am also available to work on just technique or tone, if necessary, as I believe a truly beautiful sound is the most important asset a flute player can possess. Additionally I teach piano, keyboard, theory, recorder or aural. I have had experience of teaching in Spanish, Italian and very bad Chinese!
Please inquire as to my very modest fees as I realise most of my pupils might never need to benefit from my specialist knowledge at diploma level and therefore I keep my prices in line with what other teachers have to offer.
