Teaching Style + Approach for Piano + Oboe
I take a classic approach in the music lessons, which all include, scales, arpeggios, studies, sight-reading and working through a variety of pieces. I ensure that correct technique is taught to ensure that my pupils gain strength and an easy ability so that their playing is more effortless. I am experienced at preparing pupils for ABRSM exams from Grade 1-Diploma.
I can adjust reeds and help students learn how to do this.
Teaching Theory + Aural
All students are taught theory and aural at the level suitable to support their understanding of performance. Judy teaches 'sol-fah', so that students can sight-sing more easily.
I teach note-based classical music. And have experience teaching the following genres: Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Modern, Avant-Garde, Jazz and Blues.
Judy uses the first lesson to understand what the student is hoping to achieve and to then explain how she would go about teaching the pupil to gain this goal. Judy is extremely musical and so can inspire her pupils to create levels of music they may not have been aware of. Coupled with her thorough approach to practically dealing with technical problems and her genuine enthusiasm, pupils are often more willing to work harder and so do achieve their goals with high standards.
All beginners must have an instrument they can practise on regularly. Judy can advise as to where to hire an instrument or purchase a good instrument second-hand. All pupils must expect to purchase their own music. Again this can sometimes be purchased or sold 2nd hand through Judy.
