Lex has been teaching guitar and ukelele at our school through Melton Music Tuition for over 5 years. The children love their lessons and make great progress due to his thoughtful and patient teaching style. He is dependable and flexible which we believe are must have characteristics for peripatetics! Lex is also incredibly enthusiastic, often offering to organise performance opportunities for our students. Thank you Lex - you are fantastic!Mrs Phil MillwardHead Teacher – Asfordby Hill Primary School

We would highly recommend this service to other schools looking to strengthen their music curriculum.Julia OrridgeMusic coordinator
Just a quick e-mail to say how pleased we are with how well Enzo is getting on with singing and Ukulele. I am tone deaf and found my piano, recorder and flute lessons pure torture as a child. I am therefore delighted that Enzo is being taught by people who are able to make the lessons so enjoyable. It was a pleasure to see such a confident and happy child on stage last night at Gaddesby School, and wanted to let you know that we appreciate your hard work and enthusiasm. Please pass on our thanks to Yoli.Philippa and Matt(Parents of Enzo)

Music is one of the greatest passions in my life. I started to play the violin at 9 years of age and piano at 11 years. I achieved grade 8 in the violin, viola and piano.
I qualified in music at A level, was awarded a B.A. (Hons) Music from Hull University and gained a post-graduate diploma in orchestral violin playing from the National Centre of Orchestral Studies. I am also a qualified primary school teacher and have a PGCE.
I have taught music privately to both adults and children who gained excellent results when entered into ABRSM exams. I have been teaching for 25 years, have taught class music from nursery to year 6 and led classes and instrumental groups in the production of concerts.
I enjoy playing the violin and piano at home and with groups of friends. I have extensive experience of playing in orchestras and ensembles including the Helix Ensemble and Nottingham Philharmonic Orchestra. I currently play violin with the Rutland Sinfonia.
I love teaching music and get a great sense of achievement when I see pupils enjoying music and developing their potential.
