Experienced Woodwind & Piano Tutor

I am a private music tutor and clarinettist in Cardiff, recently graduating with a BMus (Hons) - specialising in Clarinet Performance - from the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. I studied tripling and orchestral performance under the guidance of: John Cooper, Timothy Lines, James Mainwaring, and Meyrick Alexander.

I offer an inclusive, personalised, and motivating approach to teaching - encouraging aspiring musicians of all ages to reach their full potential.

At the heart of my teaching is fun and motivation, tailored to the needs of each individual student. A typical lesson includes work on tone, technique, stamina, expression, theory and aural skills.

My approach to tuition 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!

My practical qualifications include: DipABRSM - Clarinet Performance, Grade 8 Classical & Jazz Saxophone, Grade 7 Piano, Grade 6 Flute, Grade 6 Music Theory, and Grade 5 Singing.

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'.
Asides from instrumental tuition, I am passionate about enhancing transferable skills and bridging the gap between primary / secondary school music education.

Piano Teacher

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.
