From customers:

Alison A, 3 years ago

Emily played the flute for our wedding in August 2020. She was so professional, calm and poised, the music volume was pitched at exactly the right volume and we were so happy with our choices. Emily had learned a new piece for us that is a song very special to us (‘Spirits having Flown ‘ by the Bee Gees)and she played it as if she had known it all her career. I would recommend her in a heartbeat for her commitment and her total professionalism. Alison Ayres Peterborough

'Emily is an amazing teacher, she is very patient and during every session I feel I have learnt something new. She is able to pick out mistakes even over zoom calls and find ways for me to improve, be it through certain exercises or pointing to other resources that will help solve them. Overall I always look forward to each session and would be happy to recommend her as a teacher to anyone.'
