What participants in a masterclass say:
“Avril’s enthusiasm for the guitar seemed to attract all participants like magnetism, and kindled a new zest for expression on the instrument. Her ability to to provide constructive criticism at all levels of playing provided each student of the various master classes with a sense of achievement and enrichment. As a serious student of the guitar I feel that we are privileged to have a teacher and performer of Avril’s calibre.” Basil Heald to Professor Bonn (University of Cape Town, Music Department).
“I consider the guitar lessons I had with Avril to be fundamental to my development as a musician. She not only taught me the techniques to improve on the guitar, but also inspired me to translate notes on a page into expression and feeling.” Karl Rohloff (guitarist)
My master class with Avril Kinsey was a great and very informative experience. She was a very accommodating hostess at the concert series and a hands-on teacher who not only helped me gain insight into my musical decisions, within my pieces, but also helped to drive these with a thoughtful, motivational and encouraging approach to her teaching. I left with a heightened sense of awareness and mindfulness with regard to my musical choices. Megan van der Merwe BMus Ed.
