My daughter has been coming to Rachael for flute lessons for just over a year now. She is thoroughly enjoying her lessons with Rachael who is extremely patient with a chatty 9yr old! She sets her lessons out well and gives praise throughout including stickers – all kids love getting stickers! She plays alongside her and explains each part of the song in great detail making it easier and more fun to learn. I would thoroughly recommend Rachael to any parent who wants their child to learn flute from scratch as she is an all-round great teacher.
