My 6 year old daughter showed interest in learning the violin, but given her age, we were unsure if she was genuinely going to take that interest forward.

Reaching out to Emily was the best decision we took in this regard. She guided us from the start, i.e, from how to buy the instrument. She is very patient with kids and makes classes so much fun even on zoom with stickers on her face!

Just as soon as we started classes, we went into lockdown 2.0 and classes went online. Initially, we were unsure how this would work via Zoom. We soon realised that our worries were unnecessary - the classes are going extremely well!! Saturdays are now music mornings. We practice everyday so we get lots of stickers on Saturday morning :-)

My 13 year old saw the younger one enjoying learning the violin and now she started with recorder classes and insisted on the same teacher. We are huge fans of Ms. Harding!

My kids love their instrument classes and wait for Saturday mornings when we get to meet Ms Harding via zoom. Thank you, Ms. Emily Harding!

Emily is a superb teacher. Lessons are fun, well tailored to her students and she will go the extra mile to ensure that they achieve well and enjoy their lessons. Highly recommended teacher!
Sarah Ross Shaw, Music Teacher at SBSJ, Bradford
Emily and Paul are both such talented musicians who work really hard with our students. Emily was a great peri teacher and we were sorry to see her move on to other things. Highly recommend! Becky Voller, Head of the Arts Faculty at SBSJ, Bradford

Really clear lesson on bowing technique, delivered very professionally via Zoom (2 cameras, yes!) Thanks Emily, I’ll be back for more... Clare, Harding Music Community (Student)

My daughter has been having viola lessons with Emily for 7 months and she has been brill with her from the beginning to now. Her approach with her is personable to Lois’ learning style and she has such a gentle way of showing her what to improve or work on. Such a wonderful music teacher! Thanks Emily Janine, Harding Music Community (Parent)

Emily is a great viola teacher, patient and generous with going the extra mile and supporting outside of lessons by demo's to help learning. By the way I am an adult learner and Emily is very encouraging in building confidence. Highly recommended!! Janice, Harding Music Community (Student)

Emily and Paul are both very well-versed in their respective areas of music. Whenever I have a music-related question either Emily or Paul always have the answer between them. I have experienced both Emily and Paul’s teaching and both have a very approachable and accessible style. They will take each lesson according to an individual’s pace and they are always very engaging and ensure that their students understand the content that is being presented to them. They are both passionate, highly knowledgeable and professional musicians and are both passionate about nurturing the musical ability of others. Most importantly they are both very friendly, approachable and kind individuals. I would highly recommend! Lochlan, Harding Music Community (Student)

I came to Emily as an adult learner of violin. I have found her to be really supportive and encouraging. I particularly like her attention to detail when learning new pieces. Her lessons are always backed up with clear lesson notes which are extremely helpful. I can highly recommend her as a teacher Linda, Harding Music Community (Student)
