4 years private tuition experience in my former city of Birmingham from my home. I also conducted group teaching sessions with pupils of up to 10 in a class at a time privately with each session focusing on different genres of music, for example one of the sessions had a heavy focus on the blues. Ive taught people from all different walks of life, whether they are doctors, builders or even teachers themselves.
Each lesson is catered to the individual student. Realistic goals are set for each pupil based on their own aspirations and musical preferences along with monthly goals to mark their own development. I believe that theory is key in the development of a pupil, but do not consider it to be the focal point of musical education, therefore my lessons integrate theory into them but the emphasis is always placed on enjoyment and fulfillment. My experience as a live performer also means that i can guide a student in aspects of the professional world of a working musician, if they're considering a career in it.
