"Rod is an excellent teacher - he's able to identify in detail what's holding back your playing and work with you to improve it. He's got a supportive and fun vibe when teaching. I'm making a much better sound and am able to play more expressively since I've been learning with him."

I offer lessons based on your individual needs. Whether you are looking for regular lessons to improve and find greater ease and enjoyment in your playing, or if you wish to prepare for a concert, audition, exam, or competition, I am happy to help you with your musical journey. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions, or book a free online consultation (see below).

After studying with some of the greatest flute players and teachers at the Royal Academy of Music and abroad, it is a great privilege to help my students master their instrument. I am particularly fortunate to have studied with William Bennett, who learnt from Geoffrey Gilbert, Jean-Pierre Rampal, and Marcel Moyse. Being part of this musical lineage is something I shall always be grateful for. 

 

Mastering the flute is a lifelong journey and I encourage students to work on all aspects of their flute technique (tone, finger coordination, flexibility, etc) to find greater ease and enjoyment in their musical expression.

Part of my teaching is inspired by the Alexander Technique, which has helped many musicians, actors and athletes with injury prevention. For flute playing, it especially helps with breathing, tone, resonance, and finger coordination by being more aware of how we use ourselves (body and mind) and inhibiting habits which are less efficient. There are no wrong answers and I seek to positively encourage the student to find their voice and true potential. I am currently training to become an Alexander Technique teacher, which inspires my practice, teaching and performance.
