Professional music lessons in Bridgwater and Street, Somerset

Greylake Music School is committed to providing high quality music tuition in a nurturing environment, to inspire and develop pupils of all ages and standards, making music enjoyable and accessible for all.

Professional Music Tutor

Greylake Music was founded by Joanna Hadden, a professional flautist, accomplished singer and pianist, with over 20 years’ teaching experience.

I Graduated from Bath Spa University with a BA (Hons) Degree in Music and have performed in orchestras, choirs and ensembles, at a variety of Concerts, Festivals, Musicals, Operas and events across West Sussex, Surrey, Bath, Bristol and Somerset. I’ve performed at venues such as The Barbican Centre in London, the BBC, the O2, The Guildhall in Bath, the Chichester Festival Theatre, St George’s Bristol, Bath Abbey and Wells Cathedral.

I currently perform as part of the Hadden and Becher flute and guitar duo and Cracknakeel folk band. After completing my Music Degree in Bath, I performed with Trio Mistrale and the Minerva Duo at venues across the South East and South West of the UK.

In 2004, I studied voice and Jazz flute and performed as a guest flautist and singer for a Jazz trio and a Folk Rock group as well as singing classical soprano in choirs, at major venues across the South East and South West.
