Your tutor, Isabella Crowther, is DBS checked and has a BMus (Hons) Popular Music degree from Goldsmiths, University of London. She has been playing the guitar for 10 years, ukulele for eight years and singing for 15 years. Isabella is an active member of the music scene in North Wales as a singer-songwriter and producer. She is also a strong believer in the benefits of learning an instrument and songwriting especial for children and young adults as it encourages confidence, self-discipline and creative expression which are all transferable skills. She has been teaching for two years.
“Our daughter Lydia is learning to play the guitar with Isabella and we couldn’t have found a better music teacher. Her clear, nurturing style of teaching has helped Lydia as a musician and she thoroughly enjoys the time she spends in her lessons each week. We have complete confidence in Isabella and can’t thank her enough.” Karen and Matthew Young
“James has been in our care for nearly six years. When he first arrived, he clearly had a speech impediment stemming from a psychological trauma he suffered from his past, according to his diagnosis from a speech therapist. They felt they couldn’t help him. James’s voice was almost non-existent and he spoke mostly in a whisper. This didn’t deter him from loving music and singing, but he would become extremely frustrated and angry when trying to sing himself with not much sound coming out. We thought singing lessons may benefit him and then found singing tutor Isabella and arranged regular weekly lessons. Over 12 months later and at times faced with James’s challenging behaviours, Isabella has patiently taught James techniques which have greatly improved his voice and also his confidence within himself. He has even joined a choir!” Sharon
