Hi. My name is Sharon Palmer and I teach the flute from beginners right up to Grade six. I am interested in teaching people of all ages and have a keen interest in composition. I am available to teach piano, theory, flute and composition. I have a background in the arts (Architecture) which gives me a creative slant, being very good at coming up with concepts and designing songs. I have some examples of my songs on my website, where I sing and play the guitar. I also have a graduate diploma in ECE which helps me to know how to teach in a fun creative way and a way that is where the student learns alongside the teacher, rather than being talked to or learning by rote learning. I have twenty years of music teaching experience (having taught part time as I have pursued other careers), and five years of ECE experience where I have learned how to teach and make learning fun.

Teaching Info

In my lessons I will cover music history, composition but also cover the rudiments of theory and practice. My lessons will never be boring, as I have always had fun playing the flute and intend to bring that into my lessons. My lessons will cater to suit all ages. I can also teach beginner piano lessons for all ages.
