Recommendations from past & present pupils

“I have got to know Wendy through playing flute in the Freeland Orchestra and can honestly say that her musical talent and knowledge is outstanding.  I have had a lifelong ambition to take ABRSM Grade 8 on my flute, having taken Grade 5 at the age of 14 and then Grades 6 & 7 after my second child.  When my third child started school I thought that it was a good time to have a go at achieving my ambition.  Wendy agreed to help me prepare for my Grade 8 and I aimed to take it 3 months later.  Wendy managed to keep me truly focused on what I needed to do to achieve my goal and I thoroughly enjoyed having lessons again after about 6 years, particularly as Wendy was able to accompany me during both lessons and for my exam.  To my amazement I managed to achieve my first ever distinction with 135 marks!  I highly recommend Wendy as a music teacher and would particularly encourage adults who think they have left it too late, to think again!”   (SP - adult flute pupil)

given our daughter on the oboe.” (Mr & Mrs V)

“I thoroughly enjoy my oboe lessons. Even if I arrive in despair feeling that I'm never going to become an oboist, I leave feeling full of confidence and keen to get practising! Wendy always makes the lessons fun and interesting, and she provides new targets for me to achieve every week.” (DG Oboe pupil - adult beginner)
