Information About Gino - Paignton teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Gino:
Music and sound has always been a big part of my life and as such I have developed many skills in this area. I am a Grade eight classical pianist through the 'Associated Board to the Royal School of Music' and I have an undergraduate degree in Creative Music Technology from Anglia Ruskin University (Cambridge) and Masters of Music degree in Songwriting from Bath Spa University. I also have a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (incorporating the Diploma in Education and Training) from Plymouth University having taught at a college of further education in music technology and production, incorporating areas of music theory and compositional technique for the electronic musician. I have a flexible approach to tuition and use my experiences from my educational background and practice to inform my teaching.
As a (1:1) piano teacher I have provided music sessions and piano lessons for learners with physical and learning disabilities, this includes blindness, epilepsy and autism. I conduct these sessions (1:1) at a care home and they have provided the learners with rewarding experiences, transferable skills and lots of enjoyment. I also have taught learners from childhood to adult through the ABRSM syllabus or simply for fun.
I am also available to function as an accompanist for graded assessments with the ABRSM. I have carried out this function for wind instruments in the past. Please be sure to organise some practice sessions with me from an appropriate time in advance of your exam.
I also have taught music production/ technology at a college of further education including composition and music theory elements. I teach students with a variety of different needs, ages and aspirations.
As a tutor I aim to meet the needs of my student, whether that be learning for fun, exams or whatever you have in mind. I am a friendly and resourceful teacher who has my own style that has worked in teaching classrooms and (1:1). I teach at your own pace and aim to make piano/music lessons a pleasant, enjoyable experience for you.
Alongside piano I can also give sessions in song structures, composition, theory and music production.
