Personal Description:

I'm Elie and I will help you to begin or improve your Singing, Songwriting, Music Theory and Flute or Guitar playing. I am an experienced and accomplished singer-songwriter and I have a BaMus(jazz) in flute performance and am trained in Estill vocal method.

I gig at festivals, music clubs, private functions and weddings singing solo with guitar, accompanying folk tunes at ceilidhs and playing tunes on the flute. I have a studio at my house where I teach during the week.

I began my music career teaching at folk festivals, studied Jazz and now I work on the folk/ pop / country/ singer-songwriter scenes. These are my specialist areas but I have trained in classical technique on all my instruments so the style will be backed up by formal technique training.

Tutoring Experience:

I've been teaching for over 15 years to groups and one to one. I've been a tutor on many extended workshop programmes that included teacher training for me, one to one and group lessons over a weekend or week long experience. I studied a module on inclusive music making in schools as part of my jazz degree and also have worked in schools delivering sessions to whole classes and smaller groups. I've also had private students of all ages and abilities the entire time.

Initially I taught flute as this was my main instrument until I completed my Jazz degree in 2008 and I specialise in folk and jazz. I now mostly teach voice and will help with your guitar playing and songwriting if this is something you'd like to do with your singing. We can cover many styles on voice, bring your songs in and we'll break them down and learn the skills you need to sing the song how you'd like it to sound.

Tutoring Approach:

In your first session we will discuss what you want to achieve with your music and I will tailor all the lessons to these goals. I will help you to feel at ease so you can learn and grow as a musician and singer. We will look at the musical styles and specific pieces you want to learn whilst studying the correct technique for your instrument or voice. Each session will be roughly in two halves beginning with working on the technical aspects you need to know in order to achieve the sound you want. The second half of each session will be spent learning songs, applying the necessary technique to the songs and showing you how to allow your creativity to make the music you'd like to create. Whilst I will ensure you have the proper training to enable your creativity I also will help you to express yourself, enjoy making music and hopefully experience the many beneficial effects that playing music, singing and creativity can have on your whole life.
