For those interested in taking ABRSM or Trinity exams Jane’s students have had a 100% pass rate, this includes the new online performance exams up to Grade 8. While these results speak for themselves, here also are a couple of testimonials:
“My son’s saxophone teacher, Jane Tuff, radiates an enthusiasm for music and her students that flows generously, even via the internet! When we were plunged into lockdown, she didn’t miss a beat in seamlessly transitioning my 12 year old Grade 4 saxophone candidate to remote lessons via Zoom. We are very grateful. Being able to continue with music study in our current environment maintains normality, and this is a real blessing. Furthermore, although remote learning is a different experience than learning face to face, the pace of progress has not slowed. In some ways, it actually is more efficient as lessons can be more easily managed around a student’s academic schedule. Even after face to face lessons are once again able to resume at school, we will opt to remain with the flexibility of Jane’s Zoom lesson offering.” – K H (parent).
“I have been enjoying lessons on alto sax with Jane for three months. Her tuition style is friendly and encouraging. With good progress I am already playing uplifting swing tunes, such fun! Online lessons work perfectly for me. We listen to each other, discuss my progress, and play together, in comfort at home. I download pieces which Jane also sends as audio files, invaluable for practice. I so look forward to my lesson, it is the highlight of my week!” – D F Wokingham.
