About Lydia Catherine Clough

Experienced Woodwind & Piano Tutor

I am a professional clarinettist, music tutor, workshop leader, and graduate from the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama with a BMus (Hons) – specialising in clarinet performance & woodwind tripling.

For the last five years, I have taught: Clarinet, Flute & Saxophone to an advanced level, and Piano, Singing & Music Theory to an intermediate level.

I offer an inclusive and inspiring approach to music tuition - encouraging all potential musicians to realise and achieve their goals.

A typical lesson includes development of: tone, technique, stamina, expression, theory, aural & general musicianship.

My teaching style is suitable for all types of musicians, from casual to expert, beginner to advanced - if you want to learn a new instrument, rediscover an old passion, work towards graded exams, or just play for fun!

During my studies, I was taught by: John Cooper, Timothy Lines, Lenny Sayers & James Mainwaring. I also performed in masterclasses for Michael Collins and Andrew Marriner.

Early on in my music college education, I discovered an natural aptitude for teaching (largely through community outreach projects at RWCMD), and soon became passionate about enhancing transferable skills - whilst also bridging the gap between primary & secondary school music tuition.

I hold: an up-to-date DBS (available on the Update Service), CPD Certified 'Level 4 in Higher Learning Teaching Assistant' (with Higher Distinction), EduCare 'NSPCC Child Protection Awareness' & 'NHS First Aid Essentials Level 2'. I am also registered with the Education Workforce Council as a 'School Learning Support Worker'.

Particularly enjoying opportunities to engage with my community, I have volunteered at: Touch Trust (session assistant / performance specialist), Kings Monkton School (assistant Year 3 teacher), Making Music Changing Lives (assistant clarinet teacher), Bryn Deri Primary School (orchestra conductor / musical director), and Music in Hospitals & Care (fundraising assistant, coordinator & ambassador).

I have also worked as a music specialist at St. Patrick's R.C Primary School, the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama Junior Department, Forte School of Music, and SuperStars Inc.

As a Welsh musician, I am proud of my heritage - and have consistently supported Welsh Music, via a five-year affiliation with the National Youth Wind Orchestra and National Youth Orchestra of Wales (holding the seat of 'Principal Clarinettist' for two consecutive years).

I have performed in orchestral, solo, chamber, and choral settings at the following prestigious venues: Royal Albert Hall (London), St. David's Hall (Cardiff), The Sage (Gateshead), Berlin Konzerthaus (Germany), Warsaw Cathedral (Poland), Sagrada Familia (Spain), and Disneyland Paris (France).

Piano Teacher

Written by Nick R
Lydia has been my own children’s piano teacher over the last 3 years, privately. She is organised and always punctual for lessons. Her tuition is characterised by a firm but very friendly manner and very encouraging in nature. She liaises well with me regarding the children’s development and she keeps a very accurate diary of lessons with my children. They enjoy their lessons with her. She is patient and supportive and engages fully with them. She is enthusiastic and vibrant and she is always keen to do the very best for my children.
