We wanted to fire some questions out our lovely teachers, asking them about their thoughts on all things musical!
Let's hear from Becca who is one of our specialist Woodwind teachers here at My Music in Berkshire...
When did you start playing your instrument?
I starting playing the oboe when I was 9.
Do you play any other instruments?
I also play the saxophone and teach all woodwind instruments.
Whats your favourite thing about teaching?
Getting to know all my lovely pupils, watching them improve and introducing them to how much enjoyment music can bring!
Where is the most exciting place you have played your instrument?
I played at Buckingham Palace for a gala for Prince Charles and this Summer played in the KonsertHaus Berlin.
How do you feel about exams?
I think they can provide a good focus but at the same time think they are definitely not a necessity!
Whats the difference between teaching adults and children?
Adults practice more and have great commitment! They also think more which can make things more complicated, I'm always telling my adults to think less!
Do you want to get started?
We offer flexible lessons, that take place in our teaching rooms at Dawkes Music in Maidenhead. Lessons are scheduled between 9.30-5.30pm. Our pupils usually come weekly as we find this enables better progress, although some do some every other week and for more specialist queries and pro players they come every so often.
We hope you enjoy reading these quick fire Q&As and it might encourage you to take the leap into "giving it a go". All our teachers are professional, love what they do and have a passion for making music.
