"Olwen is a skilled musician who clearly loves music and the students she teaches. She intuitively observes and responds to the abilities of each individual making them feel confident, inspired and experimental. She mixes discipline with laughter and is a pleasure to have ( and listen to) in your home. I can't recommend her highly enough"

"Olwen is an outstanding teacher. She has tutored my daughter in the recorder from scratch, aged six, up the ABRSM grade ladder to the very best effect providing challenges that ensure well-paced progress. At the same time, she avoids creating any sense of pressure. At each stage, she introduces new elements to refresh practice, maintain a variety in every lesson, and in parallel to the practical music-making, she presents musical theory in an uncomplicated way. I would further add from a parent’s perspective that Olwen is highly attentive and, perhaps most important of all, extremely patient! As for my daughter, to her Olwen as a teacher is simply “spectacular”.

"Olwen always seems to know what the easiest way for me to learn is. She knows what pace I learn at and doesn't move on to other things too fast. She's an amazing player so when she plays duets with you it helps you to hear exactly how the piece is supposed to sound and makes you feel really talented."
