"Sophie teaches my daughter piano. My daughter finds Sophie very friendly and positive, and that Sophie brings out her maximum potential. My daughter enjoys her piano lessons and playing piano and is practising through her own volition. I really recommend Sophie as a music teacher."
Felicity (age 12, recently passed Grade 3 Flute with Merit) Date: January 2014
"Sophie is very encouraging, positive and a great teacher. She makes the lessons fun. She doesn't just stick to the exam books but brings duet books and well known pieces to help work on techniques. Sophie gets the balance between complimenting the playing and giving you targets for improvement so there's always something to work on."

"I contacted Sophie after I bought my flute and taught myself the first notes. After that I got stuck and could not progress any further. Sophie was able to unteach some of my bad habits and improve my technique, so I am now going forward and enjoying learning the flute. I feel very comfortable with her teaching as she understands I am an adult trying new things alongside my job and other requirements and still pushes me to learn. I feel as if I am getting somewhere and having fun at the same time."

"I really like having Sophie as my flute teacher because she is really enthusiastic and makes the lessons fun and exciting."
