This is how 2 referees rated Graham:
Hello! My name is Graham, and I'm a friendly and encouraging cello tutor who can also teach music theory, notation and music production (Sibelius and Pro Tools, and recording theory), and guitar. I'm patient and understanding, and I take great joy in helping someone learn an instrument, always with a focus on making it an enjoyable experience.
I have been learning cello since I was 6 years old, and am currently studying towards a cello diploma. I have tutored cello for around 6 years, and I have also taught theory, music production and guitar in that time. I have also worked as an apprentice tutor in a youth orchestra/band and produced an instructional book on rhythmic cello techniques.
I hold a BA (Hons) in Music and an MA in Sound Production, while I am also one half of a folk/Americana duo where I play cello and sing. I also regularly play cello with a number of critically acclaimed musical acts, and have been involved in numerous recording sessions over the years.
I am also PVG certified.
I take a highly personalised and enthusiastic approach to lessons, being patient enough to thoroughly improve technique while progressing fast enough to maintain excitement. I can produce pieces tailor-made for individual pupils to cover specific techniques, while incorporating styles/genres that interest the pupil.
I have a knowledge based in classical playing, but I can teach improvisation and rhythmic styles such as chopping for those who are less interested in classical music.
I can also incorporate other tuition into lessons, for example for those wishing to learn cello but also learn theory and/or use of Sibelius or Pro Tools.
