During my Trumpet Lessons, I spark an interest in the minds of children and teenagers for music and musicianship. I prepare students for AMEB exams, performances and school band requirements by communicating concepts and implementing various strategies according to the students’ learning ability.
I communicate with patience, kindness, and encouragement as all children undergo the learning process. I show understanding and compassion toward all different family situations, and try my best to be flexible for the benefit of the child and their family. The structure of a lesson will be determined by the level of musicianship the child starts with. If the child doesn't know how to read music then the lessons with start with working on that aspect. If the child can read music then lesson will always start with a warm up, whether that be scales or small songs is dependant on whether the child is having Graded music lesson (AMEB) or leisure music lessons. Then the lesson will continue with small pieces, and progress into larger pieces. The lesson will always end with some theory work and a note written in their take-home diary regarding their progress and what they need to practice for the next week.
I have been teaching Trumpet for five years and have had fifteen students. All students wanting to do AMEB exams have achieved at least a C+ in their Graded Certificates. All of my students have improved greatly within their school bands and have all moved up to the highest band in their school as well as increasing in seats toward First Trumpet.
If lessons are cancelled on the day of the lesson, or are not attended without notification, the rate will have to be paid for that lesson. This will not apply under extreme circumstances, e.g. severe illness, traumatic event.
