For Qualifications or Fun

Sheila is skilled at bringing her students up to grade level and many pupils have enjoyed remarkable success in ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) musical grade examinations.

During her career, Sheila has entered many hundreds of pupils for ABRSM examinations. She is rightly proud of her student's pass rate of over 97%. However, this is not to say examinations are a requirement - far from it. Many of Sheila's pupils have no intention of taking the route to a musical qualification but play entirely for their own, and others' enjoyment.

A Practising Musician

Sheila has been Principal Cellist with the Chandos Symphony Orchestra for 20 years and she also plays chamber music at weddings and celebrations around the West Midlands. She has played organ for services and concerts in many churches across the West Midlands and having been Assistant Organist at Pershore Abbey for eight years and subsequently Director of Music there, Sheila is an experienced Choir Master in both sacred and secular music.
