Personal Description:

I believe in giving students agency to develop their own musical style, and to work on the music they enjoy. I am also confident in providing students with a range of stimulus to aid them in finding their own style and musical preferences. Having completed an undergraduate degree at Newcastle University [Folk and Traditional Music BA Hons. majoring in performance] I specialise in teaching traditional music from the UK, whilst coming from a classically trained musical background I am able to teach musical grades also.

Tutoring Experience:

With a range of teaching experience, I am able to teach any age or ability. I have experience working in 1 to 1 teaching as well as group teaching- I have been a tutor and co-ordinator for a youth music group since 2017, including residential trips and teaching recording skills and also teach students privately in and around Newcastle.

Tutoring Approach:

Ultimately, I believe that the key to succeeding in developing music skills comes from enjoyment and inspiration. If a student isn't getting enjoyment from what they are doing, it becomes more difficult to progress in the long term. Developing skills requires practice and motivation, which tend to come most easily if a student is inspired to learn and is gaining enjoyment from their learning. I can teach music by notation as well as by ear, or a mix of the two, depending on what is most suitable for the student. To support this learning, I will also tailor exercises and pieces to help students develop in areas which they tend to struggle in.
