In your first lesson, Charlotte will work with you to find out what kind of music you would like to play/sing and what skills you would like to develop. She will aim to make the lessons fun, accessible and also suitable to your needs. Charlotte believes it is important for students to feel motivated and passionate about their instrument and will aim to tailor lessons so that you can enjoy your instrument.
Beginners and children should expect to be asked to buy educational materials for their lessons. Charlotte often uses the Hal Leonard piano method for primary-school aged learners. For singers, Charlotte may recommend music books to you during your first lesson depending on your preferences.
