Bill Jones - acclaimed UK folksinger


teacher and workshop leader

Belinda Wright nee Jones - Teacher and Freelance Musician

From 1998 to 2011 I worked as a music tutor in many different schools and organisations in the North East of England, including Folkworks and The Sage Gateshead.  Now, as I am trying to fit in songwriting and recording for a future new album, I am focussing on this, and private teaching.

Below is a brief summary of the private tuition services I offer:-

  • Tuition in flute, piano, Irish tin whistle and Music Theory.
  • Beginners to advanced.
  • All ages welcome.
  • Weekly or fortnightly lessons.
  • Weekday daytime and evening lessons available.

Further Information

  • I have extensive experience of classical, folk and pop music. This means that I can match my approach and teaching style to my pupils' needs and individual requirements. Where appropriate, I teach using tutor books, or in the case of folk flute / whistle, I also use oral or 'by ear' traditional folk methods.
  • For pupils who would like to gain a classical music grounding and sit exams, I use the Associated Board system. I also teach music theory.
  • I am a specialist folk flute / tin whistle tutor and I teach folk style and techinique to an advanced level.


**I am currently fully booked for evening lessons, but have some space for daytime pupils.  I do hold a waiting list, and you are welcome to email with enquiries. **
