Information about Lindsey

I am a positive and enthusiastic teacher, keen to share my passion for musical excellence with my pupils. My love of music-making was first realised when I heard the cello teacher at my Primary practising in the school hall when I was nine years old. I was amazed how one person`s sound could fill such a large space! I quickly started lessons with that teacher and have never looked back.

My approach to music tuition is all about striking that balance between having fun and making a rewarding amount of progress. There is absolutely no point in playing a musical instrument if the experience does not bring you joy, but at the same time we must realise that nothing worthwhile is ever without its challenges, and this is true of instrumental tuition.

All too often, students come to me for the first time, complaining that they can`t seem to fix a particular section of music, despite having played the piece over and over again at home. The reason they are making no progress is because they have been practising their mistake, rather than fixing it! We must learn to be musical doctors, diagnosing the root of each problem we have, so that we can fix it as quickly and easily as possible. Once students come to realise this, their music practice immediately becomes less daunting - and much more enjoyable!

Experience: I currently work part time as a classroom music teacher and choral director at the North London Collegiate School in Stanmore. I previously taught at The Tiffin Girls` School in Kingston, Surrey. Whilst I love this occupation, due to the large class sizes, I miss being able to really get to know my students and what makes them tick as unique musicians. It is for this reason that I would now like to take on more private pupils.

Qualifications include PGCE (UCL Institute of Education) and BMus First Class with Honours (King`s College London). Genesis Sixteen alumni, freelance singer/cellist, and Music Teacher with Choral Specialism.

I also offer academic music tuition, including tutoring for the Edexcel GCSE Music course, and Kodaly Method training to Intermediate standard.
