Personal Description:

I am an experienced teacher of 'cello, piano and piano accordion based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. As well as tuition, I am the musical director of Circus Central's band and compose classical music for the visual arts.

I teach from home in the West Road area of Newcastle. Students must have their own instruments and may be required to buy music on occasion.

I charge £13 for half an hour or £20 for a full hour.

Tutoring Experience:

"Kerrin is an encouraging, friendly and patient teacher who always accomodates my musical interests and learning style. When I started having lessons with Kerrin I was complete beginner and now I feel confident to play independently and with others. I would highly recommend Kerrin as a music teacher."
- Hannah

"Just to let you know how much I've appreciated (+ enjoyed!) my lessons - THANK YOU!!1 You've been a brilliant teacher."
- Sarah

Tutoring Approach:

I have a friendly approach to teaching and always implement a mixture of structured training with pieces for the enjoyment of the student. I include theory tuition within the lessons - this can be more in-depth if wanted. As the student gets more proficient I include different styles and music from different time periods to make a more rounded player. This also introduces them to genres they may later choose to specialise in.

I am flexible in methodology - if a pupil prefers to learn by ear in the folk idiom, or they want a structured classical notation-based method, I can deliver lessons to match.
