Music lessons for you!

Author: Deborah Johns

I have been involved with music from an early age, at school and in youth orchestras. After gaining ‘A’ Level music at NEW College, Bromsgrove and being awarded ABRSM’s Laura Marco prize for the highest Grade 8 flute mark of the year in the country, I studied flute and piano at music college full time, at the Welsh College Of Music And Drama, Cardiff, where I was awarded the Principal’s Prize, and a postgraduate year at Trinity College Of Music in London, achieving two graduate-level performance diplomas. After I left music college, I also studied piano privately for several years. I have been a visiting instrumental teacher at two schools. I maintain a very keen interest in classical music and continue to practise to maintain and improve my own playing level. I have performed in concerts and I enjoy attending concerts and masterclasses. I particularly enjoy accompanying and playing chamber music. I collect sheet music and books on music. I am a member of EPTA (European Piano Teachers’ Association).
