Gemma is a brilliant music teacher and has been teaching my children for 5 years. She really engages with them, choosing music to learn that fits with other interests they have. She makes learning fun and is very patient. Gemma holds a yearly showcase concert, which gives the children a chance to perform on a stage along with her house band, its a fantastic opportunity and the quality of music is amazing. I would not hesitate in recommending her.

My children have been to Gemma for music lessons for many years learning a combination of guitar (electric, bass and acoustic), piano and drums. Gemma takes a modern approach which children and young people can really tap into, teaching them a certain musicality across instruments giving them the confidence to perform. She focuses on the music they enjoy while giving them the technical skills to pass their grade exams which they do when they decide it’s the right time. As an examiner herself, she knows exactly what’s required to be properly prepared for exams if this is your focus. Gemma’s approach has translated into music being an integral part of life at home.

Gemma Stilwell taught my son music for 11 years where he achieved grade 8 in piano, electric guitar and bass guitar through her excellent tuition. He has since gone onto study music at Oxford. Gemma has a great rapport with her students and will keep their interest by giving them opportunities to perform and sit their grade exams if they wish. I have previously recommended her to as a music teacher and will continue to do so without reservation.
