Trusted teacher: Having had 15 years of piano lessons, one thing has been constant through the performances and exams I have taken - Enjoyment. This is a key aspect that the students enjoy playing the instrument and are motivated to keep on playing and learning new pieces or techniques. Piano has often in my life been my biggest hobby and an escape from other things going on, and this is something I hope to provide to anyone interested in learning this wonderful instrument. I am able to teach all abilities ranging from causal lessons up to Grade 8 standard for Piano. Having had 9 years of singing within Chapel, University and Scottish Choirs, I have been able to cover a wide range of repertoire and techniques on how to improve my singing style. During both school and university, Singing within choirs was my biggest extra-curricular, and I aim to teach lessons in a way that can encourage budding singers to grow in their confidence and ability. Singing is a social and enjoyable experience, and this is the key thing in lessons that students choose to learn songs and techniques they are keen to cover and feel engaged when improving their singing. I am able to teach all abilities ranging from causal lessons up to Grade 5 standard for Singing. I have both an ARSM Diploma and an ATCL Associate's Degree from ABRSM and Trinity College London, meaning I play up to Undergraduate standard. Combined with being a Graduate in Mathematics and Music, which has included opportunities to teach in my degree for Mathematics, means I have knowledge over how to ensure lessons remain engaging and students are kept motivated. I am a member of the University of Edinburgh's choir and NYCOS National Choir, while also having a Choral Scholarship at Church of the Sacred Heart and Old Saint Paul's Church. Involvement within these, along with past choirs such as the Fettes College Chapel Choir, has meant I am a strong singer and know how to get the best out of a singing lesson. Helping out with conducting across some of these choirs has given me experience of teaching Music, and alongside teaching Mathematics to primary schools, I can use these skills of being organised and having good communication to help make my lessons engaging.

The participants will learn the main principles of watercolour technique, composition, and mixing colours. They will learn how to create a complete painting fitting up sketches, photographs and still life objects. They will learn how to improvise using additional materials as masking fluid, salt, sponge etc. At the end of the course participants will go home with many small experiments on paper and one or two completed paintings, depending on desire. HOW THE COURSE WILL BE TAUGHT: I am going to combine talking, demonstration and working with participant on their projects. The sessions will be more practical with a lot of demonstrations and experiments. Use hands-on technique. During the course I am going to use photographs, still life and books as inspirational images (mainly botanical) for the main projects and experiments.

Participants will learn about primary, secondary colours, about the light and contrast. Colour temperature and how it helps with the perspective. There will be demonstration of some useful colour mixes. Simple rules of composition will be introduced as well. We going to explore brush strokes and how to make different marks on paper.

Private lessons of violin and viola, solfeggio, improvisation, and chamber music (Edinburgh)
I booked Emma to provide five half-hour lessons for my 9-year-old daughter as an introduction to improvising. She managed to quickly assess my daughter's initial abilities, and come up with some solid starting points that were all well-explained and which my daughter understood and enjoyed. Many thanks!
