Lessons will be tailored to each individual to develop the best approach for achieving their musical ambitions. This could involve music theory work books, working through tone and technical exercises and developing new approaches, improvisation or arrangement and composition lessons to encourage creative development. Manon invites students to bring ideas to the table, pieces they might want to learn and shape her teaching to suit their musical ambitions. These lessons are open to anyone of any age or ability!
Manon is open to teaching any genre, however she specialises in Classical, Folk music, and Contemporary music.
First lessons are centred around getting a sense for what the student is interested in musically. The lesson will start with a chat during which we can get to know each other, discuss prior musical experiences where applicable and musical ambitions and together work out a plan to begin. First lessons are about sparking excitement!
Beginners ideally should have their own instrument, (however do not worry instruments can be arranged where this is not possible), no other materials are required for beginning lessons. Manon believes music should be accessible for all and reassures beginners that there are no expectations of musical ability required to begin lessons(...just some enthusiasm!) Manon is very comfortable teaching beginners of any age, and encourages and welcomes lots of questions.
