COACHING & MENTORING
I have completed and received my coaching qualification from Relation Dynamics 1st, and have coaching experience particularly within the arts industry, working with emerging artists. I am currently in training, offering pro bono services in exchange for the experience.
I have received mentoring training from Sarah Sansom, and mentored young adults and emerging artists on Manchester Jazz Festival's 'Soundcheck' programme, and on Sheffield Hubfest's 'Momentum' programme. As an active musician with experience from talent development programmes and residencies, I can provide mentoring for other artists in these contexts, and young musicians in schools.
Get in touch if you're interested in hiring me as a mentor for your programme.
LESSONS & WORKSHOPS:
For the past 7 years, I've taught drums and ran workshops on drumming. I've taught a range of levels from beginners up to grade 8 and beyond, and worked with schools and university departments. I enjoy working with people who are inquisitive and communicative about their own learning process and the instrument.
I teach adults and young adults from intermediate to advanced, and I can guide you through graded exams (Trinity, LCM, and RGT exam boards), diplomas, and, best of all, learning structured by your own curiosity!
I teach drums from my studio based just off Abbeydale Rd.
"Sarah makes music lessons thoroughly enjoyable with her fun, warm and friendly manner. She is incredibly patient and helpful, ensuring you fully understand how to play something with the correct musical skills and technique. I would highly recommended her to anyone that would like to learn an instrument or improve their musical knowledge." - Luce
