Elaine has been excellent in inspiring & developing my son's musical abilities. My son has Special Needs & many other Music Teachers haven't been able to accommodate this. Elaine always puts my son at ease with a friendly & reassuring attitude, which has really helped him to thrive. I would really recommend Elaine as a skilled & talented Music Teacher.
I began having lessons with Elaine just over a year ago, as a beginner. I have already developed a range of different skills & achieved a Distinction at Grade One. Before I began to learn with Elaine, my co-ordination wasn't good & my confidence was low. Through her lessons I have develpoed good co-ordination & my confidence has risen dramatically, so much so, I was able to play in one of her Concerts & am now preparing for a Music Festival.
Elaine makes learning fun & I thoroughly enjoy my lessons. Elaine has an amazing talent as a teacher & is also a caring person who really believes in her students. She loves to see you grow & succeed & is thrilled when this occurs.
Hearing my retired parents play, I too wanted to play, so I got a clarinet & went to Elaine for lessons.
I have not looked back. Her teaching style is unique and also very enjoyable!
I wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending Elaine to anyone who wants to play, at any age. Eric (48)
I played the clarinet at school more than 25 years ago to Grade 5 standard. Last year I decided I would like to take it up again. I bought a clarinet & after a few months of haphazard practice on my own, in March 2012, I plucked up the courage to contact Elaine.
Teaching a 43 yr old to improve her playing must have its' challenges, but Elaine is very encouraging and motivational.
I always look forward to my fortnightly Wednesday evening lesson. She makes them fun but at the same time very productive & I always feel at ease.
Elaine encourages me to reach my full potential and after only a few months of lessons with Elaine I feel I have made great strides.
