As well as improving my technique and performance skills, Mary has helped me to become a better musician. She's always very encouraging, and I value the way she gives equal priority to baroque and modern recorder repertoire.
Current Teaching Arrangements
EFFECTIVE FROM 1st SEPTEMBER 2021
I am currently offering lessons in several different live and online formats. Choose one, or a combination, whichever suits you best.
1. Face-to-face lessons
Despite the easing of government restrictions regarding minimising the spead of Covid, I will continue implementing appropriate safety measures. This includes the use of seperate stands, not sharing instruments and regular ventilation of the teaching room. Please contact me if you have particular needs or concerns, or require further information.
One-to-one lessons are available at the following locations:
2. Lessons via Zoom
These have been very successful and popular and will continue. If you haven’t tried it and the other options don’t suit, why not give it a go? I’ll help to guide you through the setting up etc. No extra equipment usually needed but Zoom lessons do require good internet access.
3. Recorders: Dance and Sing Live
These workshops are currently on hold; however, the existing videos are still available to purchase (see right) and live workshops can be organised at Foundation, Lower Intermediate or Upper Intermediate levels if there is sufficient demand.

I am happy to lead morning, afternoon or full- day workshops for small groups of players. Please contact me to discuss further.
