This is how 2 referees rated Archie:
I am a post-graduate pianist studying for a Masters in Piano Performance at the Royal College of Music in London. I previously studied Music at the University of York. I have performed as a solo, chamber, and orchestral pianist throughout the UK. I won the concerto competition at the University of York as an undergraduate, and performed Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto with the UYSO in December 2019. I was awarded the ABRSM Diploma in Piano Performance with distinction, and took first prize in the Norfolk Young Musician competition 2018. I also have a passion for coaching and accompanying choirs, singers and instrumentalists.
I have taught piano and music theory to students of all ages and abilities. I taught at Wells Cathedral School from 2020-21 as a Graduate Musician, coaching and teaching students from years 2-13 for their ABRSM and Trinity practical and theory exams. I taught piano to university-age students at York who achieved success in grades 5-8 and ABRSM diplomas. I am also able to coach students studying GCSE and A-level music through topics such as chorales and analysis.
My aim is to help students find the joy in learning about music, and to show them the rewards that this knowledge can bring to all aspects of their lives. I like to help people discover how the piano, or music in general, can fit into and enhance their other activities. Through piano tuition, I teach a healthy technique from the earliest stages, which enables quick and enjoyable progress to be made. I encourage calm and focused practice techniques, and provide musical context to the pieces my students are learning. I have a thorough knowledge of all common musical exam board grades and requirements, and will encourage these if the student is interested in pursuing them. However, this is by no means essential.
I mainly perform and teach classical piano to a professional standard, but also have much experience in pop/rock keyboard and piano styles and can teach these (supplemented by Rockschool examinations).
