Personal Description:

I am a piano teacher, performer, music producer, composer and music educator based in Walthamstow. I currently work part time as a music teacher in a local secondary school as well as working as a private tutor teaching the following; Piano, Theory/Composition, Music Technology and the Bass Guitar. I originally studied music production and composition at the Leeds College of Music graduating in 2011 with a 2:1 honours degree. Since graduating I have worked in bands as both a pianist and bass player, and worked as a studio engineer and as a producer before entering the teaching profession. In 2013 I completed a PGCE in secondary music at Bristol University then going on to teach secondary music in both state and independent education.

In 2015 I completed a masters degree (Mmus) in music composition at the University of Surrey, composing works in a number of styles ranging from pop and electronica through to contemporary classical works.

I play both the piano and bass guitar to a high level having played both instruments for over 15 years achieving grade VIII in both, I also have an advanced knowledge of music theory and composition as well as an advanced knowledge in music technology and production. I am able to teach the following instruments and subjects:

Piano (beginner to advanced)
Music Theory (beginner to advanced)
Bass Guitar (beginner to advanced)
Composition (beginner to advanced)
Music Production/Technology (beginner to advanced)
GCSE Music Tutoring
A Level Music Tutoring

I am happy to teach all levels, ages and abilities from beginners through to advanced students.

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience of teaching classroom music in secondary schools, teaching both GCSE Music and A level music, and I also have experience of teaching A Level Music Technology and BTEC music/music tech.

Outside of classroom teaching I have worked as a private instrumental teacher for 5 years, having taught the piano, music theory, composition, music technology and the bass guitar. I have experience of teaching both adults and children and all levels from complete beginners to intermediate and advanced musicians.

Tutoring Approach:

I am aim to tailor my lessons to suit each individual students needs, in the past I have helped students work towards graded exams, having experience of working with ABRSM, Trinity and Rock School exam boards, as well as helping students simply learn an instrument for fun.

I try to ensure that lessons are fun and engaging for each student, but that there are also clear structured goals to work towards. I am happy to teach all ages and ability levels and work towards goals that you have in mind, whether that is simply having fun learning and instrument, working towards grade V theory or needing help with GCSE revision or coursework.
