"Emma is really funny and creative. I like my lessons because they are really intriguing and fun. Emma has taught me a lot she teaches in an exciting way. I am never bored in my lessons we get to play a game. Emma is the best teacher I have ever had and I love my lessons with her."
"I really enjoy drumming and enjoy lessons with Emma. She always try to make everything fun. In lessons sometimes we play this game called 'Copy King'. Emma is a really good drumming teacher and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wanted to to get in to drumming."
"I get to tell Emma new songs that I want to learn and play. I like learning about dynamics and playing drum games. I can read music too."
"Emma has taught me for 6 months and she's very kind and helpful. She lets me practice whenever I want. When I don't understand something she explains it more so I understand it better."
"I like that Emma taught me what all the dynamics are called and I started by playing drums at a school fair and I wanted to learn more so I started my drum lessons with Emma. I like playing the game where we stick on the names for each drum and the listening game."
"I find my drum lessons with Emma amazing because you get to try new songs and learn new things. You get to play a tune and Emma will help and guide you through the song. Emma will always play the song for you so you know what it sounds like. It is so fun trying new things and learning new things. You play a game sometimes. I would definitely recommend Emma."
"I think that lessons are really fun working with Emma because she has a kind, gentle way of teaching as well as making it exciting."
"In the 18 months of attending tuition with Emma, our 8 year old daughter has gone from a shy beginner into a confident and enthusiastic player, reading music and currently preparing for her grade 1 exam. She has a great friendship with Emma and looks forward to her weekly lessons. We have occasionally changed schedules due to work commitments and school activities and every time Emma was willing to work with us to accommodate out needs."
