This is how 2 referees rated Graham:
Graham offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
I offer the first lesson free and a 25% discount for the first year for beginners (up to grade 1). I currently teach for Fettes College, Edinburgh Council and the Dunbar Music School.
I have over 10 years teaching experience and would describe my teaching style as flamboyant, fun and thorough. I have taught complete beginners through to grade eight, SQA, A level, diploma level and conservatoire entry. I have taught within state, private and boarding schools, and I have also taught for charities and community projects. With over 10 years teaching experience I am sure I can meet and exceed your needs.
I learnt how to teach complete beginners under a mentorship with the London Symphony Orchestra's retired second flute, Siobhan Grealy. With her I learnt many teaching techniques geared towards complete beginners.
My approach is to always stay positive and to try unlock the students listening skills, so that they can hear what I hear. I do this through 'spot the difference', playing tunes they recognise, descriptive imagery, encouraging duets/ensemble playing, improvisation and other musical games.
Lessons are usually 30-60 minutes long, weekly and during school term time. If you are a complete beginner who has never played an instrument before here is the fastest timeline you could expect to progress at:
First year - Learn As You Play Flute book (units 1-8) and Gr1
Second year - (units 9-16) and Gr3
Third year - The Big Book of Disney Songs and (units 17-24)
Fourth year - Gr4/5
Fifth year - Gr6/7
Sixth year - Gr8+
