She enjoys tailoring lessons to suit students - whether complete beginners or students from a classical background who wish to learn Irish traditional music. Lessons are designed to be fun, friendly, informative and productive, and proceed at a steady pace. A variety of learning resources are used - transcriptions in both musical notation and ABC format, aural learning, videos and recordings. Jacquelyn’s lessons are very popular and many students have progressed from Beginner level through to Advanced, and successfully participated in the ICC sessions and traditional Christmas Concert at Lyric Square, Hammersmith.
