From the publisher’s website:

‘This versatile anthem is scored for treble voices and piano and has optional parts for treble instruments. This is cast in a more popular style and the long flowing phrases and harmonies in thirds and sixths create a lovely atmosphere for the text by English hymn writer Alan Gaunt. A delightful piece for children’s choirs and the instruments could be taken on by children as well.’

Potential Uses

Piano Lessons FAQ

Find out below a bit more about the piano tuition I offer:

What can I learn?

I teach all styles of music including classical, jazz and popular styles. All lessons are tailored to individual needs and interests. Lessons cover a good balance of repertoire, sound technique and general musicianship skills.

Who can learn?

I accept piano pupils from the age of 8. There is no upper age limit and I have taught pupils well into their 70s. All ability levels are catered for from beginners to advanced levels.

Why should I learn?

Learning an instrument is very rewarding. Not only can it develop musical skills, but a whole host of interchangeable skills, including increasing confidence and general well-being. Learning the piano allows you to play with others (duets, trios etc.) and accompany singers and instrumentalists.

What will I need?

You will need access to your own instrument; this might be either a digital or an acoustic piano, but should not be an electronic keyboard. If you are in any doubt about this, check out this blog post I wrote a while back. New digital pianos start at around £300, acoustics starting around £1,500. There are also many second hand options available.

Flute Lessons FAQ

Find out below a bit more about the flute tuition I offer:

What can I learn?

I teach all styles of music including classical, jazz and popular styles. All lessons are tailored to individual needs and interests. Lessons cover a good balance of repertoire, sound technique and general musicianship skills.

Who can learn?

I accept flute pupils from the age of 9. There is no upper age limit and I have taught pupils well into their 70s. All ability levels are catered for from beginners to advanced levels.

Why should I learn?

Learning an instrument is very rewarding. Not only can it develop musical skills, but a whole host of interchangeable skills, including increasing confidence and general well-being.

What will I need?

You will need access to your own instrument: I do have a spare instrument if you would like to try it out first. Beyond that, Just Flutes run an excellent hire-to-buy scheme and you can find out more here. Beginner flutes start at around £200. A small number of books will also be needed initially. I am happy to advise further about hiring or purchasing a flute. Please don’t buy cheap instruments on eBay: many are of a poor quality and will prove a false-economy long-term.

Singing Lessons FAQ

Find out below a bit more about the singing tuition I offer:

What can I learn?

I teach both classical and music theatre. Lessons are tailored to the individual’s needs and interests. They contain a good balance of repertoire, healthy vocal technique and general musicianship skills. Most people sing a selection of styles including classical, folk, jazz and music theatre. I don’t focus on a particular ‘method’ of singing, but rather adopts a holistic approach, drawing on the best that each offers. Please note that I don’t teach pop/rock/karaoke singing (this is not a criticism of the styles, but that I am primarily classically-trained, and therefore specialise in that repertoire – it is very rare to find a singing teacher who specialises in every style in equal measure). For those who particularly want to specialise in music theatre, I also offer speech and drama training alongside the singing.

Who can learn?

I accept pupils from the age of 11 upwards. Other teachers accept pupils younger, but in my experience, this is a good age to start. In the early years, voices are continuing to change and develop and the lessons will reflect this. There is no upper age limit and I have taught pupils aged well beyond 70! All ability levels are catered for from beginners to advanced students. Please don’t worry if you think you’re tone deaf, sing out of tune or don’t have a very good voice – I cater for all these too!

Why should I learn?

Singing offers an enormous array of benefits. It can enhance well-being and increase confidence. It offers the opportunity for pupils to sing in choirs and make music with others. A number of exams and assessments are offered for those who are interested. Singing is a very personal thing – you are your instrument – this makes it a hugely rewarding pastime.

What will I need?

The advantage of learning to sing is that you already own an instrument! You will need a few books along the way and there are costs involved in taking exams and assessments for those who are interested.

Difficulty Level

Instrumental and vocal music is assigned a rough difficulty level as follows:

Beginner, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, Advanced

These levels roughly correspond with ABRSM, Trinity Guildhall and LCM examination levels in the UK. This does not imply that the piece has been set on any of these syllabi, and the difficulty level is given as rough indication only.

Choral music is assigned a rough difficulty level as follows:

Easy, Medium, Difficult

You are advised to view the sample sheet music and listen to the corresponding audio recordings to check whether the pieces meet your needs. If in doubt, please contact the composer who’ll be pleased to provide further information.
