Hesther Somerville ALCM CTABRSM

I have been teaching flute and recorders to children, teenagers, and adults for 30 years, from complete beginners through to grade 8. I hold Grade 8 Distinctions in both Flute and Recorder. I also have the ALCM Performers Diploma which I took on flute. I play locally in the Dartmouth Orchestra, the Wayward Winds ensemble, and for the Red Earth Orchestra, plus my local village Candlelit Carol Service Chamber Orchestra in Staverton once a year, and occasionally for the Dartmouth Choral Society Christmas Concert Orchestra. My primary training is in classical music, but I also enjoy playing whistle, flute and recorders in folk music settings.
