Information About Alan - Pickering teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Alan:
I’m Alan and I have 30 years experience of teaching the piano and classroom music in North Yorkshire (Primary School through to Secondary School, including GCSE and ‘A’ Level).
I provide bespoke, friendly, piano and keyboard lessons to beginner and intermediate students aged 5 to adult across Ryedale (Malton, Pickering). I tailor my music lessons to the student’s needs. As an experienced classroom teacher, I can also help students with music theory or composition studies, especially those embarking on GCSE examination courses.
Adults are most welcome to get in touch and have a chat. I can provide lessons for complete beginners or people returning to the piano after a break and who wish to brush up on their piano skills and repertoire. For adults, my role is that of a mentor rather than a teacher.
I am also a composer, having scored the soundtracks to several feature films, shorts, documentaries and audio books (see **Web Address Removed** for more details). I can help budding composers release their creativity and give structure to their compositions.
I have 30 years experience of piano, keyboard and music theory tuition and all aspects of classroom music.
As a teacher, I have a passion for making private piano and keyboard lessons exciting, challenging and, most of all, fun! I tailor lessons towards the individual in order to make sure that progress is fast and entertaining.
Over the years, I have taught GCSE and ‘A’ Level Music and have also been a Head of Music, supporting and developing the careers of newly qualified teachers.
For convenience, I travel to students’ homes to teach.
As an ISM Registered Private Music Teacher (Incorporated Society of Musicians), I hold an up-to-date DBS/CRB Certificate and have full professional and public liability insurance.
