Personal Description:

Having amassed a wealth of 30 years experience in performance, teaching, production, songwriting and music technology I am offering a wide range of lessons from beginners to advanced in Electric/Acoustic Guitar, Bass and Technology.
I have performed in small intimate venues right through to the Tokyo Dome (50000). I have a wealth of experience in TV appearances , Video work, Tv and radio interviews, magazine interviews and so much more. I have had the pleasure in seeing quite a few pupils become successful professional players and teachers. I am able to bring all of this side of playing into my teaching. This is the stuff you can not get from a text book. For example, playing at volume under bright lights is a totally different experience to playing at home.
Lessons will be individually tailored to your ability and requirements. It will not be box ticking exercise but rather to develop a true understanding of the tools and information at the required standard.
I can help you prepare for graded exams, GCSE, A Level, IB and Btec Music Technology. Performances, at the student’s choice, can recorded for analysis and self assessment with the aim to refine phrasing, dynamics and overall performance. In my experience recordings do not lie whereas the brain tends to fill in the gaps.
I have excellent facilities to provide this service with a wide range of studio equipment and software. Due to todays ever increasingly busy lifestyle lessons can be arranged in a “as and when required” arrangement. Therefore if you require an hour lesson once per month or half hour per week all needs can be tailored to suit.

Tutoring Experience:

Schools Taught In Herts

Summercroft Junior School Bishops Stortford …… Classical Guitar

Summercroft school is a primary school in Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire UK. It caters for children up to year 6. Usually around the ages of 10-11. My role was in providing Acoustic (nylon string) Guitar lessons on a one to one basis. Pupils abilities were mainly at the beginning stages of their learning. Therefore educational tuition would be the main form on offer. Finally my services were made available through The Herfordshire Music Service.

All Saints Junior School Bishops Stortford …… Classical Guitar

All Saints CE is a another primary school in Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire UK. It caters for children up to year 6. Usually around the ages of 10-11. My role was teaching Acoustic (nylon string) Guitar lessons on a one to one basis. Pupils were mainly beginners as a result of being so young. Finally my services were made available through The Herfordshire Music Service.

Simon Balle Senior School Hertford …… Electric/Bass Guitar

Simon Balle School is a co-educational secondary school, sixth form, and most recently primary school with academy status located in Hertford, Hertfordshire, England. Students up year 13. My role was providing electric guitar and bass lessons on a one to one basis. Styles were mainly in the form of rock, pop, blues, indie and metal.
Tasks were inclusive of preparing pupils with their Gcse/A level solo studies. As a result educational tuition was the primary focus as many were on courses. Similarly those not on courses would express a desire to develop their playing skills. Therefore I would pay close attention to pairing the theoretical and practical aspects of playing so they could consequently run hand in hand.

John Warner Senior School Hoddesdon …… Electric/Acoustic/Bass Guitar

The John Warner School is a secondary school with academy status **Telephone Number Removed** year olds in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire. I was teaching both educationally and casually. Hence learning for fun was equally balanced with those on courses. Electric, Acoustic (both steel and nylon string), bass as well as **Contact Detail Removed** were all part of my duties. My tasks were also inclusive of helping pupils with the compositional aspects of their course.

Sheredes Senior School Hoddesdon …… Electric/Acoustic/Bass Guitar

Robert Barclay Academy, formerly known as Sherds, is an age 11-18 non-selective academy located in Hoddesdon Hertfordshire. My role was in providing both educational and casual tuition. Likewise many were learning for fun as well as on courses. Electric, Acoustic (both steel and nylon string), bass as well as band tuition would all be part of my duties. My tasks would also include helping pupils with the compositional aspects of their course. Finally Sherdes school, as it was previously known, was where I was included in the participation of the “Musical Futures” project.

Birchwood High School Bishops Stortford …… Electric/Acoustic/Bass Guitar/Music Tech

Birchwood High School is a co-educational secondary school and sixth form with academy status located in Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire. My roles were in providing individual and **Contact Detail Removed** for Gcse and non course related learning. Therefore electric, Acoustic (both steel and nylon string), bass as well as band tuition were all part of my duties. I would also assist with some music technology above all with particular regards to midi programing. As a result students were learning how to compose on Digital Audio Workstations. Also educational and casual tuition were on offer here. Hence many were learning for fun as well as on courses.

St Marys High School Cheshunt …… Electric/Acoustic/Bass Guitar

St Mary’s is an 11 – 19 co-educational, comprehensive school with Academy status. It is one of four Church secondary schools in Hertfordshire all of which are within the Diocese of St Albans. First of all my role here was to provide educational tuition with regards to Gcse music solo studies.

Cheshunt Senior School Cheshunt …… Electric/Bass/Acoustic Guitar/Music Tech

My roles were in providing individual and **Contact Detail Removed** for Gcse and non course related learning. Electric, Acoustic (both steel and nylon string), bass as well as band tuition were all part of my tasks. Lessons ranged form solo 30 minutes to joint 20 minute lengths. Finally another duty included teaching Btec Music Technology as well as help preparing students for performance sections Btec Popular MusicDiplomas.

Haileybury and Imperial Services College Hoddesdon …. Electric/Bass Guitar

Haileybury is an independent co-educational boarding and day public school and lower school in Hertfordshire. Lessons would be in the form of individual 30 minutes. Both educational and casual tuition were on offer. Also the Rockschool grade exam syllabus was on offer and was therefore taken up by some. I would help prepare students for their Gcse, As and A level solo studies. Lessons consequently would be in the form of Electric and Bass guitar. Finally some IB students would select Electric guitar as part of their CAS hours.

Private Tuition.

Teaching privately is by far the most flexible method of teaching and learning. As a result I would teach everything that pupils would request. Therefore this would mean helping students with their Gcse coursework, A levels, college course material, degree course assignments and the list goes on. Pupils would range from the ages of 7 – 65. Consequently all have their own reasons for wanting to learn. The skill here is to listen to what their requests would be. Above all then try to formulate a workable method to get them there.

Tutoring Approach:

Music is a very personal experience therefore tuition should respect that idea. Should you wish to learn for fun (casually), educationally or a mixture of the two then that shall be the approach. My job is to direct you through and how to overcome technical obstacles and make sure you know what and how to proceed with a clear mind. Practice takes care of the rest. Practicing the right way is essential. You do not want to get good at doing the wrong thing.
On the other hand if you are studying course material that requires a performance or recording then that is equally as important be it a GCSE A LEVEL DEGREE module Graded exam. My approach is simply to help you meet your goals what ever they may be. Even if they change along the way. Flexibility is key
