Information about Aimee
My name is Aimee and I have experience teaching flute at top UK and international independent schools, as well as performing as a soloist and within orchestras. I studied Music with a specialism in Flute Performance at The University of Nottingham. I also play piccolo, and teach beginner saxophone. I also teach music theory up to grade 5.
I have a particular love for orchestral playing and modern music with use of extended techniques. I played in the Bristol Metropolitan Orchestra until my move abroad in 2018, and have also performed under the baton of Michael Seal (CBSO). I love giving performances which pleasantly surprise the audience- this was very much the case when I beatbox flute during a university recital!
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: I have experience teaching from ages 6-18 in schools, and adults privately. I have worked at UK independent schools, and also taught flute and saxophone in Moscow, Russia for a year 2018-19. Of my students who took ABRSM graded exams, 100% have passed, mostly with either merits or distinctions, which I am very proud of. I have also taught music theory up to grade 5, and again, all of my pupils have passed the exam comfortably or with merit/ distinction.
Away from music I have experience working within boarding and pastoral care, so am used to helping students manage their worries and nerves. This comes in useful when preparing for exams or concerts which can sometimes be a bit scary!
I believe that teaching requires a careful balance of encouragement, examples, and most importantly, listening to the student. From my broad teaching experience, I can confidently say that what works wonders for one student can have no effect for another. I encourage regular practice, mainly to keep you engaged and interested in your learning, but understand that this can vary by circumstance. Many of my previous students have chosen to follow the ABRSM graded exam route (and this can be beneficial as the rounded syllabus includes learning pieces, scales, sight-reading and aural training). However, I also enjoy supporting students who just want to learn for fun. As a tutor I always start by asking the student what their goal is, what they want to achieve. After that, we can go from there!
