Learning to play an instrument is one of the most demanding skills an individual is likely to undertake. Embarking on learning an instrument can be for pleasure or as a means for gaining extra qualifications. Both can result in confused expectations and anxieties.
Lessons will not only develop technical skills of your instrument and build a diverse resource of repertoire but the knowledge to give reason and understanding to the often baffling ‘where do I start’. With Victoria’s experienced approach and intuitive sensitivity alongside her infectious enthusiasm and love of music, students are assured of developing strategies of learning and depth of understanding to support their practice which will equip them to perform at their best consistently.
