Information About Barnabas - Lewisham teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Barnabas:
I have been studying and performing as a drummer and percussionist for 9 years and seek opportunities to share my passion with others.
I am currently studying part-time for a Master’s degree in Music at Goldsmiths College, University of London, with particular interest in performance practices.
I have many music industry experiences in a variety of styles, from which I draw upon in my teaching. In terms of popular music, these range from performing in Warner Brothers showcases; recording sessions in Metropolis, Hackney Road and Goldsmiths Music Studios; and professional function band performances at weddings and corporate events.
Earlier this year, I spent over seven months in Santiago de Cuba learning intensively with the great Afro-Cuban percussionists Ramon Marquez and Manolo El Duque.
I was brought up by two classical musicians, which allowed me to study music from a young age, and have been myself teaching for many years. Since 2010, I have also created and run one-on-one and group workshops for secondary school students in music production, introducing key music technology concepts to students with classical music skills.
I am creative in my tutoring approach, my lessons are engaging and inventive.
My various musical experiences as a student and performer give me a broad understanding of learning, which informs my own teaching and helps me better communicate and relate with my students.
