Hi, I'm an avid keyboard and piano player. I hold grade 8 in electronic Keyboard, and grade 7 in piano. I have worked through both instruments from grade 3 upwards. The examination board for both instruments were, LCM, (London college of music). I also hold grade 5 in music theory, through the examination board, Associate board for the royal schools of music. I have a passion for music and play every day. I have a good knowledge in the theory of music. I have picked up some very good techniques in tutoring and passing on essential information and techniques to make the learner absorb and enjoy the learning process. I am now doing on-line tuition to assist with people who are isolated… I have a DBS certificate
I have been on numerous presentation courses in my profession as a retired glass making manager. I have taught many people within my industry, all have been in the classroom environment plus one to one tutoring. I have excellent knowledge of music theory, and will present this constructively to the learner. Practical teaching will be a mix of using the instrument and P.C. interaction, plus previous theory examination papers, which we work through together at a comfortable pace, so the learner absorbs the information.
I have recently put forward 3 students for exams with the LCM, (London college of music). The results were 2 distinctions and a merit in practical exam performance, and a distinction in grade 2 music theory…
I have learned to be proactive in my approach to teaching and presenting. Breaking a task down into digestible chunks is the best way get the information across. LIke most things in life, we all need to be able to understand the information that is presented to us. I use Sibelius 5 to teach aspects of music score writing. I use Auralia to teach music theory as well as written exercises, and past examination papers… these are very useful and constructive in the learning process.

John is a person who has a sense of humour that brings an element of fun to the lesson.
When I asked my Grandson for some feedback he said " he is cool not like my teacher and I don't feel silly if I get it wrong."
I would absolutely recomend John as a tutor.
