The tremendous sense of achievement as you become proficient in an instrument is hard to match. Having been a musician and educator for over 15 years, I hope to help others feel that same sense of achievement, and enable them avoid the many pitfalls along the way!
I am a full-time Music teacher; with over fifteen years experience. I have taught and lectured at all levels of education – from primary to further; and am very well versed in all aspects of the Standard Grade and Higher Music syllabuses (including composition and aural).
I undertake every lesson with 100% commitment and enthusiasm, and as such, take pride in the thorough preparation of materials produced by myself – not simply copied from the internet! Although I trained classically, I would consider myself to be equally proficient with Electric, Acoustic, and Bass guitars; and can teach these instruments to well beyond a grade 8 level. I teach most styles, but am particularly well versed in Rock, Blues, Classical, Funk/Soul, Acoustic, and Finger-style genres.
Many of my students undertake nationally recognised examinations in practical playing and theory throughout the year (although this is by no means compulsory), and my students have pass rates of over 95% in theory (ABRSM) and 98% in practical grades (LCM and Trinity) – in fact many of my students have gone on to study music professionally.
Aside from music, I am nearing completion of a BA(hons) degree in history, enjoy reading and films, and spending time with my young family.
