Past teaching work:
February 2012 to July 2016: Marylebone CE School-peripatetic Double Bass teacher.
September 2012 to 2014: First String Experience at the Royal Academy of Music. I was part of a group of teachers covering tuition in all string instruments for 4 to 7 year olds using the Kodaly method.
I am a friendly and encouraging person so I try to bring this approach into my teaching. A good technique is vital to playing the double bass and I incorporate this into lessons right from the beginning. During lessons, as well as learning about the instrument, I also spend time working on aural skills with the pupil through clapping exercises, singing and improvisation so that the pupil gains an all-round musical knowledge, which is vital if the pupil wishes to take graded exams. I use either the ABRSM or the Trinity-Guildhall syllabus, depending on what the pupil prefers.
Studying for my LRAM in 2012 has broadened my knowledge of teaching styles. I love teaching, and am willing to teach all ages.
