About Jamie Deakin

I have taught private lessons for 5 years, developing a teaching style focused on encouraging musical expression, enjoyment of the instrument, and developing musical freedom through improving technique and timekeeping. I have taught children and adults from absolute beginners onwards, and also delivered children's workshops through the West Yorkshire Playhouse, Leeds. I am a reliable, punctual teacher who is enthusiastic about inspiring my students and keen to develop their overall musicality. I am patient and willing to tailor lessons to my students needs, level of ability and particular interests.
