“Emily Kimpton came highly recommended to us as a clarinet teacher when Harriet expressed an interest in learning an instrument. We couldn’t be happier with the experience over the last three years. Through Emily’s expert tuition and encouraging teaching style, Harriet has developed a deep love for music and a solid understanding of theory and practice which she has demonstrated through wonderful AMEB results. We would happily recommend Emily to anyone who is looking for a music teacher.” Marcus Ransom and Vicky Dembalas.
