Having started learning from the age of 5, Florence has since then obtained her ABRSM grades 1-8 in classical piano. She then went on the study Music at A-Level and has recently graduated from the University of Leeds with a BMus degree in music performance, during which time she was awarded the Frank Toothill Performance Prize for outstanding achievement in vocal performance. Florence spent her third year of study at the Académie Supérieure de Musique de Strasbourg, where she received voice lessons with Marie Kobayashi, following tuition from Louise Winter and repertoire coaching Martin Pickard. Alongside her teaching practice, she is currently working towards attaining an ABRSM Vocal Performance Diploma and a Teaching DipABRSM in piano.
By incorporating a wide range of learning methods and skills during her lessons, Florence’s teaching approach strives to actively encourage well rounded musicianship. Her ultimate goal is to help you enjoy making music. As well as providing a solid foundation in technique, Florence’s lessons aim to facilitate your ability to express yourself through music in an encouraging and non-judgmental environment. You’ll ideally leave feeling inspired and enthusiastic about what has been honed in the lesson and what is still to be discovered!
