About Georgia L
Georgia released her debut album in late 2017 which led her to a nomination at the BBC radio 2 folk awards. Although she now specialises in folk music she was originally classically trained as a vocalist and pianist from the age of 11 in both classical and jazz genres. She went on to study her degree at the Brighton Institute of Modern Music, specialising in voice and songwriting and went on to become a full time artist, performer, teacher, and in-demand session player.
She has worked as a free-lance producer, one fifth of a successful prog-rock band, as well as guest lecturer in schools and universities. Since becoming an artist, Georgia moved back to the south west and swapped a life of keyboards and studios for ceilidhs, festivals, and late night sessions. With such a breadth of experience, Georgia brings an all-encompassing attitude towards teaching. Having taught herself so much over the years, as well as studying with some of the top players in her chosen fields, Georgia is able to adapt her teaching methods to suit you and focus on improving you to the best of your ability.

What Georgia would like to discuss with you your personal goals to see the best strategy in helping you. Georgia asks you to create a work diary that allows you to track of your personal progress and what you need to work on for next lesson, so please bring a blank work book with you. By doing this Georgia hopes to create a relaxed atmosphere for her students in order to focus on their development and learning.
Georgia will begin the lesson by discussing your chosen goals and strategies with you. Then she will progress to technique and warm up exercises. After that she will begin to focus on the development of your goals and finish by giving you some ideas for personal practice and planning for next lesson.
Each student is different and Georgia will draw on her experience, both as a performer and teacher, to tailor the lesson to best fit you.
Georgia looks forward to teaching beginners. The early stages often prove the most rewarding and fun for anyone new to their instrument. All ages are welcome and Georgia will adapt her teaching to meet your requirements because with the right methods she believes anyone can learn!
