Beginners/Intermediate Flute Lessons (Cantonese/English)

For complete beginners, the things I'll teach you the following in chronological order:
- basics of the sounding of the flute, assemble/disassemble the flute
- tone development: posture, embouchure, breathing, articulation
- basic rhythmic training
- fingerings for simple notes e.g. "G", "A", "B"
- other notes ("F", "Bb"; "E", "D", "C")
- understanding the balance
- sightreading simple solo, duet pieces
- more advanced notes
- pitch (sharp/flat)
- tone color
- more advanced pieces
- musical ornaments

My teaching style is goal-oriented. Tone color is the most important skill to master in my opinion.
I can help you with the ABRSM grades you want to achieve!

About Me

I have a background in MSci Pharmacology with Professional Placement Year with First-Class Honours from KCL, worked at the University of Oxford. I am native Cantonese, proficient in Mandarin and English (~native) - both spoken and written.

Currently teaching the piano, the flute, and phonics in my spare time:) I enjoy interacting with people from various backgrounds. I have a passion for music and I am keen to transfer my musical skills, techniques, and understanding to my students. More importantly, I really enjoy guiding and empowering my students in their pursuits with a positive learning attitude, in so doing also boost their confidence.

I completed the Music Theory Grade 5 exam at age 10. Attained ABRSM Grade 8 for the piano and double bass at ages 11 and 15. Attained LTCL for flute at age 14. I played in both woodwind and strings orchestras, also participated in various local and overseas competitions throughout my school years in HK.

In terms of work experience, I have worked in various cities, London, Oxford, Shanghai, Hong Kong (hometown) using various languages. Naturally, I have an upbeat, cheerful, enthusiastic personality. Having worked at various startups, I also encourage an empowering and proactive leadership/teaching style. I am flexible, comfortable, and versatile. My teaching will be dependent on the student's needs -- I believe in systematic teaching but malleability is also important depending on the student's potential and character.

Cantonese is the spoken Chinese language used in Hong Kong and several provinces in China. It is not an easy language but it is very useful especially for those of you who are looking to further your career or development in Hong Kong, a glamorous international city. Born and bred in Hong Kong, I am native in this language and I will be able to teach my beginner students basic words, strokes if needs be, the 9 tonalities, and the pronunciation of every new word. We'll start with words, and then vocabularies, and further, grammar, sentence structure to formulate simple sentences. My teaching style is casual. I believe that practicing is the key to perfecting any skills not least languages, and I am passionate about having intriguing conversations with people from a variety of diverse backgrounds.
Learning how to play the piano is not only musically enriching as it is one of the easier instruments to pick up if you are new to music, giving you a solid base of musical understanding, but also will boost your confidence in general being able to recognise pitches with multiple voicings as we work up the grades. I adopt a goal-oriented teaching style: - we will work through ABRSM grades -- breaking down the work needed to master all the way from scales to exam pieces to aural to sight reading.
Nailing pronunciation is important in learning a language. I am going to teach you English phonics, including accurate word pronunciation + breakdown, and how to read phonetic symbols in International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). My classes are chill and casual - developing a passive income source. Happy to schedule a call to brief you what you'll learn!

Learn the Art of Celtic Music on the Irish Flute
With me, you will have the opportunity to escape to "Celtic" country for a lesson There are several types of Irish flute: (Tin Whistle, Low Whistle, Irish Flute) I will make you discover the beauty of so-called "Celtic" music by explaining everything you need to know. * The basics of this instrument (positions, interviews, breath control, etc.) * The many Celtic Standards. Indeed, there are many more or less difficult songs, but nevertheless very melodious :) If you do not have a traditional Irish flute, during a first lesson, I will be able to guide you on which flute to buy. We will obviously take into consideration your different wishes So if you are ready to deepen your knowledge, I will be happy to teach you what I learned :) NB: If you have a Boehm type transverse flute (transverse flute used in Classical Music), it may take more time to familiarize yourself with Celtic Music. I mean by that that certain positions, certain fingerings will be more difficult to play because of the keys of the flute ... But don't worry, we will find a way to overcome this difficulty. :)

Recorder, flute and piano lessons, from medieval to contemporary music for all ages
“An exciting and versatile young recorder player, committed to pushing the boundaries of his instrument” (Erik Bosgraaf, 2021) Hello! I am a professional recorder and flute player with a passion for both early and contemporary music, offering lessons on the recorder, flute, piano and in music theory in the Amsterdam area and online. I graduated from a Masters in recorder at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam Cum Laude, with a scholarship from The Countess of Munster Musical Trust. Previously, I graduated from the Royal College of Music London with a First- Class Joint Honours Bachelor’s degree in Flute and Recorder. In 2021 I was a finalist for the Moeck/SRP recorder competition as part of the London Early Music Festival. I am an encouraging and dedicated teacher who believes that effective practice, rather than talent, is at the heart of any musical development. I share my expertise in how to practice well, varying your approach to make different connections rather than just repeating things - this also helps to keep practice interesting! I am also keen to help each student find their own voice and expression through music, tailoring lessons to each students needs and goals. I have specialist knowledge of medieval, renaissance and baroque music, and can help students to develop skills in historical performance and ornamentation/improvisation. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Laura
Flute and Music Theory tuition for students of all levels
I have played the flute for more than 20 years, and have been teaching since 2011. I offer flute lessons to children aged 8 and up, and adults at all levels from beginners to post Grade 8. I also teach recorder to younger beginners- I find this is a good stepping stone for younger children as it's more comfortable for smaller beginners to hold, and easier to make a sound on. Learn to pass exams or just for fun- many of my students achieve highly in ABRSM and Trinity grades, but some prefer not to take exams and this is fine too. Whatever your level, one to one tuition means that I can tailor my teaching to your needs as a flute player, and my teaching takes into account the reasons you learn an instrument, encompassing a wide variety of repertoire. I also teach music theory- lots of students come to me to help prepare for Grade 5 theory, and I also teach higher theory grades.
