Not only is Jemma an amazing trumpet player but her personality, understanding and knowledge of the instrument also make her a fantastic teacher.
Jemma is an outstanding musician. She is a first-class trumpet player with experience and knowledge of a wide range of musical repertoire and styles. Her playing is exquisitely expressive and she is my first choice for live recordings, orchestra work or solo engagements. She is a dream to work with – reliable, dedicated, musically sensitive and creative. I cannot recommend her highly enough as a performer or teacher.
Jemma Andrews is the most sensitive, most talented Trumpet player I have ever had the pleasure in working with. Add to this, her gorgeous personality and constant smile – she really is 1st class. Remember me when you’re famous.
Jemma is a fantastic trumpet teacher. She was recommended by another music teacher, and Alex (11) immediately found her easy to get on with, encouraging and inspirational. Jemma’s lessons are efficient but not rushed, she has high standards but is always clear on what needs to be worked on to improve. Jemma is full of praise when things go well and a great motivator when they don’t! Alex has recently achieved grade 6 trumpet distinction and will be sad to leave Jemma later in the year when he takes up his place at Junior Guildhall.
I have had many trumpet lessons with Jemma and she is a great teacher and very good at getting the best out of you. She also plays it beautifully!
Jemma has been teaching my 9 year old daughter the cornet for a couple of years now and my daughter has really progressed with both the theory side of music as well as learning to play. My daughter loves her lessons with Jemma and really looks forward to them. Jemma is very patient and explains things well on a level that my daughter understands. There is always a game at the end which my daughter looks forward to, as it tests what she has been learning, but in a fun way.
