A LITTLE ABOUT ME.
My name is Sarah Leonard (BA, PGCE, PGDip) and I’m a fully qualified teacher of Music and SEND, and I graduated from The Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. I’m a Grade 8 Euphonium player, with experience of playing the Trombone, Flugel Horn and Piano.
I have over 10 years of teaching and coaching experience, working across the full age range from First School to Sixth Form. Adults are very welcome to inquire about lessons!
I also have a 100% pass rate for my students entering ABRSM examinations.
As far as my own musical education is concerned I’ve been lucky enough to have been taught by some very talented and successful musicians indeed. My first teacher was Dr Robert Childs. Whilst studying at the RSAMD I attended lessons and masterclasses with Steven Mead, Tony Swainson, David Dowall, The British Tuba Quartet and Christian Lindberg to name just a few.
I even managed to teach my cat Darla to play the piano!
I’ve played for numerous brass bands across the country as a soloist and as part of a contesting team. Notable names include CWS Glasgow, Whitburn Band, EYMS Band and Bournemouth Concert Brass.
I’m also fully registered with The DBS (formally known as the Criminal Record Bureau) and have a full Enhanced Disclosure Certificate. This gives you peace of mind when entrusting your children to my care during lessons.
