Emma holds a Licentiate of the Royal Academy of Music (LRAM) teaching qualification, with Distinction.
Emma teaches flute at Wells Cathedral School (specialist music school), the University of Cambridge, and Kingshott School (Hitchin). She has given masterclasses at the Royal Academy of Music, Trinity Laban Conservatoire and the international Oxford Flute Summer School. Emma has also taught chamber music at the Primary Royal Academy of Music, and she ran the flute ensemble at Trinity Laban Conservatoire for several years. Her pupils have won places at conservatoire senior and junior departments, and in the National Children’s Orchestra/National Children’s Wind Orchestra.
Emma tailors her approach to the needs of each individual pupil, spending a lot of time planning for pupils outside of lesson time. She recommends appropriate ensembles, courses and concerts for them to attend, and organises a pupil concert every term.
Emma regularly prepares students for graded flute exams (ABRSM, TCM, LCM); she has an 100% pass rate, with most students achieving high marks. She was recently asked to help compile the new repertoire list for LCM’s graded flute exam syllabus.
Emma is able to accompany her students on the piano in lessons, and she also teaches music theory.
“Emma is an astonishing musician and is able to transfer her talent to her students making her an excellent teacher. She offers sensitive guidance with honest feedback that ensures each lesson is tailored to our daughter’s needs. The lesson is rounded so that knowledge and understanding of each piece is gained, helping our daughter to develop her own thoughts and interpretation of the pieces. She is an inspiring role model who encourages and challenges our daughter.”
