Heather Gessey

Teacher of Violin/Vocal

I'm a 23 year old professional musician with an enthusiastic 'can-do' attitude. I specialise in folk and traditional music but can teach beginner and intermediate at classical level.

I am based in Hexham but spend an awful lot of time over in Newcastle where most of my teaching takes place. I currently have space for a few more students and would be delighted to support and encourage new players in any way I can. I have a wealth of experience in teaching both young people and mature students.

Currently, among other projects I am teaching Violin and Voice at Portobello Primary School in Birtley every week and also running a song-writing course for adults based in Hexham. I spend a large part of my summers teaching workshops at various folk festivals and events.

I have an enthusiastic approach to teaching and try to engage with each individual student through their own hobbies or music preferences. Where possible I provide a relaxed atmosphere whilst maintaining a good work ethic from my students. I expect the student to have completed the short homework tasks I set in order for them to progress and feel a real sense of achievement.
