About Miranda

Licentiate and Associate of the Royal Schools of Music
Miranda Lewis's profile picture
Clarinettist
Swansea
Public liability insurance of £10 million

There’s no denying that music adds so much flavour to life – from listening to favourite songs to exuberance when dancing, a life without music is devoid of colour and joy. A bit of background to get started: I am a musician and teacher passionate about inspiring my students to cultivate a love for music and help to develop their talents. After completing my studies in London at the Royal College of Music last year, I now accompany singers in concerts. I do pit orchestra work with theatre companies and was lucky enough to be selected to sing in the film 'Hunkydory', a musical set in South Wales. Additionally, I perform at other professional engagements such as weddings, WI meetings, functions and shows and have played in the Gwyn Hall café in Neath providing light entertainment before cinema screenings. Other work includes Swansea Purple flag entertainment and Mermaid Quay entertainment in Cardiff. When it comes to teaching, for over 12 years, I’ve taught students of all ages and abilities, advising, guiding, and encouraging them to go beyond their potential. Whether you want to play for the pleasure of playing an instrument, or you’re an ardent beginner ready to progress to an intermediate level, or you already play or sing but want to improve your abilities, I can help. I will listen to your aspirations and any fears and give you practical yet valuable tips about how to enhance your talents and skilfully pass your exams. My tailor-made lessons are fun and invigorating and will reflect your favourite genre of music as well as introduce you to new ones. My rates are reasonable and I offer discounts based on monthly bookings. Whether you want to learn to play the clarinet or enhance your musical knowledge through in-depth theory, you can count on my expertise and knowledge to expand your skills, nurture your passion, and help you to succeed. Please get in touch for a chat about your goals and musical preferences and a free first lesson. I look forward to sharing my love for music with you!

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Please let me know in advance of the event if possible - this is no issue at all, please feel free to get in touch with me to let me know as soon as you find out the change and I’ll do my best to fit it around my timetable. I look forward to hearing from you!

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes I can, I am savvy with technology and that’s no issue whatsoever, I often use an iPod for backing tracks for my playing anyway so this would be no problem at all.

How much time do you need to set up?

Up to 20 minutes maximum - just my instrument(s), stand and backing equipment.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Yes that’s absolutely fine, please view my repertoire list on my account or feel free to request new repertoire for your event. Of course, I would be delighted to play from my set list.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely, and can provide a backing CD for solo pieces on clarinet or saxophone, which I play acoustically; I may need a socket to plug my amplifier in, however, I am flexible and can bring batteries for outdoor events.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes, for sure! I may not have listed every single song I can play, however I am happy to learn a special song specifically for the event - please let me know and I charge no fee for this service.
