Heather Rose

Music Teacher

I love sharing my joy of music with students. My students are all self-motivated and always are practicing. they get great results in Classical, Music for Leisure and Theory and all have a good working knowledge of theory. They are all playing to the best of their ability. I expect my students to understand that they are expected to put in lots of work at home to become better at music. I love teaching adults and advanced students chord structure, improvisation and song writing as well as exam work and performance. I am a multi-instrumentalist and have performance experience in rock, blues, jazz, classical, silent movie writing and am a singer / song writer.
