About LIS

Experienced flute teacher: friendly and motivational

I love teaching the flute: fun flute learning for ages 8-88!!

I enjoy seeing my pupils' musicality develop and if they wish, supporting them through exams. Among my pupils recent successes are various distinctions, an ARSM and a DipABRSM.

I am an experienced teacher specialising in flute performance, music theory and musicology. I am an enthusiastic musician, teaching to a high standard. I have formulated a fast-track method if you want to work hard and achieve good results quickly.

I was originally educated at Chetham's and the Royal Academy of Music, winning the flute prize and a Countess of Munster award. I studied the flute with the leading players Gareth Morris, Atarah Ben Tovim, Patricia Morris and Sebastian Bell. After my studies at the Royal Academy of Music I played the flute professionally, freelancing, for example, with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. Other work included solo recitals and early twentieth-century and contemporary chamber music, on the flute, piccolo and alto flute.

I had a full time teaching job at a leading independent girls' school as head of woodwind and brass (1989-1999). I gave many performances conducting orchestras, bands and flute choirs and class teaching up to A level.

Flute teaching

Written by Sally S
I have had lessons with Lis for three years now. I had some previous experience on the flute but Lis has been instrumental in improving my tone, technique, and musical performance. She was aware I had confidence issues and has provided opportunities to build up gradually in a comfortable manner to the point where I have taken part in small concerts and achieved distinctions in my grade 6, 7 and 8 exams.
Subject:
Flute
Outcome:
High exam grades achieved and now looking forward to diplomas.

An experienced flute teacher with extensive academic knowledge

Written by Becky L

She has consistently encouraged me to push myself in my practical ability and her extensive academic knowledge has given me a richer understanding of the flute. I would certainly recommend her to others.
Subject:
Flute
Outcome:
I have improved sufficiently to undertake Dip ABRSM.

Flute lessons

Written by Lucinda P
I have been learning the flute for just over 3 years with Lis. I am a music teacher myself so it has been great to compare notes! With Lis I have progressed very fast, achieving grade 5 in 2 years, and covering lots of other repertoire too. Lis encourages group work, duets and trios etc, to make it more fun.
Subject:
Flute
Outcome:
I am still enjoying my lessons very much and am encouraged to work hard!
