Course Description

Siobhan’s Advanced course builds on the foundations laid in the Beginner and Intermediate courses but goes further by developing your abilities and musicianship in many key areas. Flexibility, lip technique, range, scales, vibrato and playing solo are all included in the course.

Siobhan helps you to improve your sight-reading and develop your playing skills, so that by the end of the course, you will be playing Grade 8 standard music. The ten-video course will help you progress technically and musically to the point where you will be playing advanced pieces and have the confidence to take your playing to new heights.
