Personal Description:

Bio:

I am a full-time musician playing in the band 'After London'. As well as this, I have been teaching piano and drums throughout the previous 2 years and have just started teaching to Music GCSE students at St Mark's Academy; I currently have around 50 students a week. The majority of my students are at school, however, I happily welcome adult students and all who are eager to learn.

I have gigged locally, but primarily play in central London. I have been doing band work for the last 6 years and have become extremely proficient in both drums and piano, as well as the live performance aspect of my instruments; therefore, I can teach from many different angles.

I teach piano on a grand piano which is a great source of learning. As well as this, I have an electric drum kit (Roland) and an acoustic drumkit (Mapex black panther, Black widow series) in my studio, which allows me to teach verbally, sensually and aurally.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching both piano and drums for the previous 2 years, both privately and at a school, which has made an ever-growing student base of 50 students.

I am currently being taught by Gabor Dornyei, one of the leading drummers in the world, and would love to pass on any advice I can give to my students!

As well as this, I have completed and passed Music A level and grade 5 theory (Merit). I play both Piano and Drums above Grade 8 standard and I am DBS checked.

Tutoring Approach:

As Previously stated, I try to help my students learn in as many ways as possible. By covering aural, sensual and visual learning through having 2 pianos and 2 drums to work with I can quickly determine how a student best learns and how I can help them progress as quickly as possible!

I am happy to work through grades with students, however, I do not force this upon them. I am happy to teach them with or without grades to their preference.
