Please do use the Contact form on this website if you are interested or if you have any questions. Emma holds a Licentiate of the Royal Academy of Music (LRAM) teaching qualification, with Distinction.
Emma has recently been invited to teach multiple masterclasses at Trinity Laban conservatoire, where she also adjudicated the Final of the 2018 Harold Clarke Woodwind Prize. Emma has been teaching Cambridge University flute students since 2016. She also taught chamber music at the Primary Royal Academy of Music 2014-15, and has recently been invited to work at the Junior Royal Academy of Music and Trinity Laban conservatoire as a deputy flute teacher. Her pupils have recently won places at conservatoire junior and senior departments, the National Children’s Orchestra and the National Children’s Wind Orchestra.
Emma tailors her approach to the needs of each individual pupil, spending a lot of time planning for pupils outside of lesson time. She recommends appropriate ensembles, courses and concerts for them to attend, and organises a pupil concert every term.
Emma uses the ABRSM and Trinity grade systems, but recommends that her students learn a wider range of pieces, rather than just those on the syllabuses. Emma is able to accompany her students on the piano in lessons. She also teaches music theory.
“Emma is an astonishing musician and is able to transfer her talent to her students making her an excellent teacher. She offers sensitive guidance with honest feedback that ensures each lesson is tailored to our daughter’s needs. The lesson is rounded so that knowledge and understanding of each piece is gained, helping our daughter to develop her own thoughts and interpretation of the pieces. She is an inspiring role model who encourages and challenges our daughter.”
