Personal Description:

I've been a music teacher (formally) since 2000. Prior to that I was a performing musician, working in groups duos and solo for more than 25 years. I still gig occasionally but only for my own satisfaction. I am enjoying mentoring my students to reach their full potential.

I decided to teach solely from home in September this year, following a frightening experience travelling from a student's home early evening.

Tutoring Experience:

I started by teaching in colleges in 1987, got qualified and began teaching formally at Warwickshire college in 2000. I taught guitar and also worked on the popular music and technology course at the college. I worked for Warwickshire County Music Service for a while, teaching primary aged youngsters in a classroom environment. I discovered how rewarding working with this age range could be and, after a considerable amount of soul searching, decided to teach from home as I wasn't altogether certain about the value of removing youngsters from core lessons (numeracy & literacy in particular) to pursue arts (guitar lessons).

I ran a successful teaching practice from my home in Warwick from 2007-2014 when I decided to relocate to Dorset. During this time I mentored many students through graded exams (up to an including grade 6) in classical guitar, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, music theory and ukulele. I currently use exam materials from the RGT, Trinity and Rockschool boards. I no longer teach electric guitar.

I relocated to my home village in early 2016 and, following a programme of works to prove my home / teaching space, i am now ready to take students again.

Tutoring Approach:

Music should be fun! I am a great believer in this. Sometimes its easy to lose focus on the student and concentrate on skills (particularly at exam times). I tend to work to formalised 'Schemes of Work' and Lesson Plans' - deeply rooted from my teaching is school and college day, but am aware that some times, a youngster (or older person) may have other issues or distractions in their day to day life and, the mark of a good teacher is, in my opinion, an ability to re-engage a student at such times, perhaps softening the achievement targets to allow for other priorities.
