Gerry offers expert tuition for several instruments and is a very talented individual. Her main instrument is clarinet, which is taught from beginner level up to grade 8, alongside piano and keyboard (up to grade 5), penny whistle (up to any stage, mainly covering Irish folk music), and bodhran (taught up to an intermediate standard). On a Monday morning, a joyful assortment of different sounds can be heard from Gerry’s studio upstairs at Booths Music.
Alongside numerous grade certificates, Gerry attended the London College of Music to earn herself both ALCM and LLCM diplomas in clarinet playing, a GLCM honours degree (including clarinet and piano performance) and a Post Graduate Diploma in the study of Music for Film and TV.
Gerry offers a wealth of experience, including over 25 years of teaching musical instruments, more than 30 years of national orchestral clarinet performance and a lifetime being involved playing folk instruments up and down England and Ireland. Gerry is currently holding a position with the bass clarinet at Bolton Symphony Orchestra, and also performs as a folk duo with her husband, who is also a keen musician.
