Kirsty provides woodwind lessons up to grade 5 on flute, recorder, clarinet, and alto saxophone, and up to grade 8 on bassoon. She is a specialist in early grades and young learners and has pupils from as young as 5 years old, as well as adult pupils.
Smaller flautists can start on fife or on special curved head joints, and clarinettists may begin using a lightweight C clarinet such as the Lyons or Clarineo. More details are available once you have expressed an interest.
Most children take a break in the shorter holidays, but Kirsty does offer summer holiday lessons to avoid the long break from playing.
School lessons are available at Swaffham Prior, Swaffham Bulbeck, Coton and Dry Drayton primary schools. For more information about school lessons please completethis school lessons form.
Private studio lessons take place in Bar Hill, and are usually 30 or 40 minutes long. Pupils are expected to do 5 practices per week, which usually results in progress of around one grade or more per year. It is now possible to book a mix of zoom and studio lessons, for more convenience for those who find it more difficult to get to Bar Hill. Pupils on the mixed format are expected to do at least 1 lesson in 4 in the studio.
Current fees are £33 per hour (£11 for 20 mins, £16.50 for 30 mins, £22 for 40 mins)
