I am a student with Roderick Seed and have been taking lessons with him for approximately one year. He is a wonderful teacher and is a very talented musician. Rod never "tells you what you want to hear", he teaches with great precision and excellence. He is the best teacher that I have ever had! (Shere L., USA)
I’ve been taking lessons with Rod via Skype for about a year. I’ve learned so much. His knowledge of the flute and how to teach is inspiring. He has limitless exercises and solutions for combatting problem areas. I consider myself very lucky to be one of Rod’s students (Sylvia E., USA)
I have been blessed to work with Rod for the past year and a half. Before my time with Rod, I was self taught on the flute for a few years. In the little time I had with Rod, I was given the opportunity to skyrocket in my music abilities. Rod has prepared me for numerous auditions and performances and has inspired me to pursue my passion for music. As my world of music is rapidly expanding, I have still yet to meet another flutist as knowledgeable and genuine as Rod. I will forever be grateful for his amazing teaching and the time he has spent with me. (Isabella W., Canada)
I can definitely recommend Roderick. He is an incredibly patient, supportive and inspiring teacher. (Lynsey B., UK)
Feedback from masterclasses:
Roderick got to the core of the most important parts of flute playing. He introduced us to many valuable techniques for building stronger, fuller sound and demonstrated ways in which we can enhance our playing by using these important elements in our daily practice.
I thoroughly enjoyed his teaching and the gentle guidance and individual approach he provided. I learned a lot in a few days. I am encouraged to become a better player.
I really appreciate his different flute-teaching techniques - how to change what you're doing in/with your body, in order to change the sound & technique. He didn't just ask us to try to achieve a certain sound or technique; he demonstrated WHAT TO CHANGE, in order to achieve the results.
Many useful ideas for improving technique.
These were very interesting and some of them were new to me.
Rod is very well informed, calm and supportive.
Excellent technique and practice tips
