Specialist Music Teaching:
As a qualified music therapist having worked in a variety of settings such as psychiatric and dementia wards, Special Educational Needs (primary and secondary) and with refugee communities, Antonia is experienced in music teaching for those looking for more specialised pathways to learning an instrument or exploring music more generally.

Suzuki teaching:
Antonia's Suzuki training has given her an insight into the effectiveness and joy of teaching children holistically and as part of team, whereby the parents are invested and present in the learning process. A key component of the Suzuki method include developing the whole child as a musician alongside the instrumental learning to become confident and capable young people. The ear and technique are developed at a young age through playful, creative modes of learning so that as they reach increasingly challenging repertoire, they already have the tools and technique needed. This means playing and practising can become inspired and more enjoyable rather than hard work, particularly when children reach secondary school and have many demands on their time.

Traditional teaching:
For parents seeking a non-Suzuki approach, Antonia applies the same creative and holistic stance with young learners but with slightly different repetoire. For those who have a more specific idea as to the goals of their learning, particularly adults, Antonia's approach is more bespoke.
