We are so pleased to welcome Felicity to our team of fabulous teachers!
Felicity is an English pianist and composer currently based in Texas. She started playing the piano at the age of four and also plays the violin, flute, and organ. She received much of her formative musical training at Mount Kelly, an independent day and boarding school in Tavistock, England. Additionally, she holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Composition from The Boston Conservatory and a Master of Education degree from Tennessee State University. Her Master of Education thesis, Ethnic Music in Nashville: A Choral Approach, won the university’s graduate oral presentation award at its Spring 2017 Research Forum For the Arts. She will be beginning the PhD program in Visual and Performing Arts at the University of Texas at Dallas in August 2020.
Felicity has been teaching piano for over ten years. Since moving to Texas in 2018 she has taught as a piano, voice, and composition teacher at two local music schools. Two of her students placed in the 2019 TMTA Student Affiliate Original Composition Contest. One student won the Large Ensemble category, and another was awarded third place in the Solo Grades 1-3 category.
For every hour of teaching Felicity will put in more than an hour of preparation work. She is super organized and dedicated to her students. She believes in being supportive and encouraging while pushing students to reach their full potential. In her view, it is important for students’ love of music to grow as their technique grows.
