Advice

The frequency of lessons depends on each individual’s overall goal, but Gemma would recommend a weekly lesson to ensure stable progress and enjoyment. She is happy to discuss any of this with you prior to booking lessons, feel free to send a message above if you have any questions.

Reviews
"Gemma is very warm, patient and genuinely cares about her pupils’ development in their playing. This has been evident in her close attention to detail about specific improvements William needs to work on and her focus on pushing him to achieve more highly. She is extremely organised, always completely on top of what he has been practising and needs to do next, positive and smiley and very well liked by William who always looks forward to his lessons. Everything you need in a top class music teacher!"
Pupil’s Parent, July 2020

"Gemma is an exceptional teacher to our seven-year-old son. She is kind, with ‘bottomless patience’ (to quote his own words), supporting and always smiling. She has turned our son’s lessons into an enjoyable journey full of exciting activities. He learns hard techniques effortlessly through fun games and rhymes, giving him a strong sense of achievement."
Pupil’s Parent, July 2020

"Gemma makes her lessons fun and has gone the extra mile to keep my daughter engaged in learning at points when she has struggled. Gemma is also brilliant at communicating with us as parents and giving tips and resources to support and inspire our daughter. Hannah sums our recommendation up: 'Gemma is so fun and kind!' "
