flute, piccolo & music theory teacher, Leeds
"I have been coached regularly by Andrew over the last four years and he has been a tremendously supportive teacher. I have benefited hugely from his depth of experience, technical know-how and musicianship: he has completely rebuilt my technique and made me much more self-aware about what I am trying to do and how to go about achieving it. As one of his older pupils, I feel we relate together in a friendly but serious way which makes our sessions enjoyable and productive. Fortunately for me, he seems to have infinite reservoirs of patience and good humour, but I know too there are times when I am being gently but firmly pushed."
Below is a selection of the testimonials that Andew Littlewood's students have sent him.
"My daughter has been learning the flute for the past seven years and Andrew has been a fabulous teacher. He is meticulous in his tuition and passionate about music. We are lucky to have found such a wonderful teacher."
"Andrew is an excellent teacher who helped me to achieve the best possible mark! (99/100) We were able to laugh whilst still getting the work done. I would definitely recommend him!"

THANK YOU for all your enthusiasm and patience in teaching Max so thoroughly in preparation for his Grade 5 music theory exam - just as you did for Katie and Nicholas. With our very best wishes to you."
"I am delighted with the tuition my daughter received from Andrew at Roundhay Music. He was very patient and knowledgable and explained complex music theory topics clearly and comprehensively. My daughter achieved a distinction in her Grade 5 Music theory exam."
"Thank you so much for teaching me music theory. You really helped me to understand it all and I couldn't have done it without you. You have also helped me to understand music classes at school for G.C.S.E. I'm sure all of these skills came to use in my flute playing too but just have done it subconsciously. Even when I thought I would never be able to understand something, you helped an awful lot so that I could. I really appreciate what you've done to help me get those marks in my exam."
"When I started my lessons with Andrew, I had not played the flute for 2 years and only had a very basic knowledge of the instrument. However, within a year of starting lessons with Andrew, I had passed grade 3 with a merit. I have now been taught by Andrew for almost 3 years and have just taken grade 5 (having skipped grade 4). Not only is Andrew a great teacher, but he is so passionate about the flute, which I believe encourages his students to aspire to excellence."
