My son had these gcse lessons with Debbie over yr10/11 and it worked incredibly well being a home education student, he really enjoyed the well structured format and Debbie’s friendly, lively and positive interactions. She has a wonderful ability to encourage confidence and gently guides students in their weaker areas. Debbie has excellent knowledge of her subject area and all her resources are so helpful, the composer study guides in particular where music sections can be played individually alongside detailed analytical information. She makes careful records of student’s progress with the tracker, mock exams and exam practice questions. This has been invaluable this year as the exam board requires teachers to assign the gcse grade based upon evidence. She is highly organised and has good computer skills needed to offer a computer based course the skype lessons ran very smoothly and it is very easy for students and teacher to pass work back and to. Work can be immediately marked on the screen and it is very easy to share on screen work especially their compositions from Sibelius which she gives expert feedback on. Debbie recorded my son’s performance at her house and this proved very successful too as did her witnessing the ensemble performance piece. Debbie has worked tirelessly particularly in response to working around problems caused this year with the virus, she organised a zoom mock exam which worked very well. I would highly recommend her services to anyone considering their child studying gcse music she will try her hardest to make sure they achieve the grades they deserve. A big thank you to you Debbie.
