Avril is a young teacher who has experience within the piano, singing and bass guitar, with both theoretical and performance knowledge. While she has not yet attended university, Avril’s skill set is derived from performing and writing original music in her band ‘Left Lane’, who regularly perform at local venues and have released two singles and an E.P. on Spotify, iTunes and other platforms. Through understanding the creative industry and how to conduct and coordinate a group of musicians, Avril brings to her lessons practical and creative knowledge that students may need when performing or pursuing their own musical interests.
As a younger teacher, she is able to relate to students quite well, especially as she has received much musical education throughout her life and can apply her own valuable experiences of learning to the workplace. She is highly interested in creating a fun, safe and interesting environment where kids can learn and bring out their own ideas and interests. Students can go beyond the basics and learn about musicians, genres and techniques they like. Avril fundamentally possesses the skills and attributes to influence young musicians to do the best they can, while also educating them on how music works beyond just theory.
