Kinderflute 2017


Two Kathys: Kathy Blocki and me!

Just got back from an amazing week in the Netherlands where I attended Kathy Blocki’s fantastic KinderfluteTM 2017┬áteacher training course. So many inspiring ideas to bring home to my students! Keep an eye out on my website for upcoming KinderfluteTM intro classes I’ll be organising and leading for children aged 4 and up in Brighton!


Congratulations are due to mother and daughter flutists, Tina and Eryn, for successfully completing their first ABRSM exam! They both passed with flying colours and played brilliantly at the Winter Recital. Congrats to Rona as well! Rona successfully completed her Grade 3 ABRSM exam and is currently working towards preparing for her Grade 4 exam! I am one proud teacher ­čÖé

Happy New Year!


What fun we all had at our Winter Recital! Little Baby was very well behaved, except when she tried to steal the chocolate bars I had ready for our performers…. during a performance! Thank you Heather for being very understanding and for cheerfully starting our “Away in a Manger” duet again! Well done to everyone for the excellent performances you practised so hard for. You all played so professionally! We also raised almost ┬ú30 for Cardiac Risk in the Young. Thank you and all the best in 2017!

Way to go Kate!

Belated (but much deserved) congratulations are due to Kate who completed her ABRSM Grade 5 exam last December just before my little one was born. Kate worked very hard indeed and her efforts landed her a much deserved Distinction!

Accepting New Students September 2016!

Wow! What a year it has been! My husband and I welcomed our little child into the world as 2015 drew to a close and we couldn’t be prouder parents!

Three of my students have also completed ABRSM exams recently and all of them have received Distinctions- another cause to celebrate. Evening and weekend lesson times are currently available for September 2016 lessons so please feel free to use the Contact page to send me a message should you be interested! All ages and levels welcome.

A Beautiful Day

ExciBrighton Bandstand Seaside Wedding Photographer Photographyting news to announce! John and I got married in beautiful Brighton on Sunday, July 5th! We would like to extend our warmest thanks to everyone who helped make our day so special. A very, very big thanks is due to my flute students who performed before the ceremony and provided such beautiful music for our guests to listen to. Thanks are also due to those of you who brought cakes, flowers and gifts. We could not have asked for a more perfect day!

Flute lessons will resume the second week of September so contact me now should you be interested in securing a lesson time.

Our Christmas Flute Recital was a success!

Congratulations to all of my students for performing so beautifully at the Christmas Flute Recital yesterday at St Nicholas Church.

We had an excellent, supportive audience and we raised £66.34 for charity through donations and the raffle! All proceeds will be donated to Emmaus Brighton & Hove ( to support those without a home. A big thank you to St Nicholas Church for providing the venue for the recital, to Mari Hall for her skillful piano accompanying, to Matthew Suter for looking after the building for us and to my very patient boyfriend, John Smith, for all of his help setting up. Photos from the event are now on the Gallery page. Hope you all have a joyous Christmas and see you in 2015!
