Information About Fallon - St. Ives teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Fallon:
I am an enthusiastic trumpet player and tutor teaching in and around Cambridge. I have many new teaching slots due to recently completely my Music BA(Hons) degree. I have a huge range of playing experience having been involved in and involved still in wind bands, concert bands, funk bands, solo classical performances, function bands, pop bands, ska bands, Cuban big bands, big bands and jazz ensembles. This is also accompanied by my work as a session musician providing trumpet and flugelhorn for artists and musicians in the studio. I would say my technique and playing overall since being at university has improved drastically due to being exposed to the wide variety of styles and genres, I consider myself a much more rounded player and I am excited to teach my continuous findings.
I have pupils aged from 10-50 and I am willing to teach any age, however I do require my younger tutees to have their 'adult front teeth' before I am able to teach them. My experience also involves having had the great opportunity to see top Norfolk and London based teachers teach as well as helping locally at Comberton Village College during their Music week activity at the end of term for 3 years running. Both experiences have helped me to gain further teaching knowledge and technique.
I also have a keen interest in Music Therapy and have plans to complete an MA in it soon which will make me a qualified Music Therapist. I have contact with some of the most experienced professionals in the field at my fingertips so please do contact me regarding students with Special Educational Needs, I would be delighted to hear from you and to gain some SEN students.
Having had experience in many different genres and styles, I feel it important to pass this on and not just focus on one particular style - unless this is a complete requirement of the student. I believe skills such as; playing by ear, improvisation, composition, music theory learning passages from memory and the focus on many styles are extremely important and aim to include all aspects within my lessons. I do however begin with a classical technique routine to gain strength and flexibility which will then allow my student to continue down the avenue they wish to.
