GarethPrivate flute tuition in English or French with a native speaker
My name’s Gareth, I’m a young music teacher from Ireland specialising in the flute. I have recently moved to Cologne and am delighted to begin welcoming new students to my private teaching studio!
I obtained my Bachelor of Music from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in the UK, graduating in 2015. This included a diploma in woodwind instrumental teaching from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM). I then moved to Paris to continue my musical studies at the Ѐcole Normale de Musique de Paris on the Cycle de Perfectionnement. I spent 3 years there studying with the principal flute players of both the Opera de Paris and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, whilst also taking advanced classes in music pedagogy.
I began teaching flute, saxophone, clarinet, bassoon and oboe in Northern Ireland at the Lisburn School of Music, and then continued teaching at the junior conservatoire of the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. In Paris, I worked for the Mairie de Paris as both a flute/woodwind and choir instructor, in both primary and high schools. I have consistently taught private students throughout all this, ranging from ages 4-80 and beginners through to advanced players.
My teaching style is relaxed in nature, however structured and goal orientated. I enjoy working with my students to set short term targets along with long term goals, and together work out a strategy and plan to achieve these aims, with the overall aim being enjoyment and love for making music. I love working with children as well as with adult learners, at all levels from total beginners to advanced players.
I teach currently from my new home teaching studio in Weidenpesch, Cologne. I have several slots to teach at the students home, however please contact me on here to arrange a time that suits. Travelling to the students home will include a travel charge unfortunately!
I speak fluent English and French and am offering lessons in both languages!
I hope to hear from you all soon,
