Personal Description:

Clarinet teacher with 6 years of experience in musical tuition to students of various standards and ages. Highly driven in music performance and capable of creating an engaging educational environment. Musical training at conservatoire level. Excellent communication and time management skills. Can be flexible with hours, happy to work early mornings, evenings, and holidays.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been giving one-to-one tuition in clarinet for many years now. Having received clarinet lessons from many teachers across Europe, I am not only familiar with English teaching practices, but also teaching techniques from the continent and so I am able to incorporate these into my personal approach to students. In addition to this, I also have experience in carrying out instrumental workshops in various primary schools, such as Pakefield Primary School, Roman Hill Primary School and Netherlee Primary School. I also partook in voluntary outreach work through schemes such as the Royal College of Music ‘Sparks’ and the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain ‘Inspire’ programmes. As well as these endeavours, I am an active freelance performer, regularly performing as a guest with orchestras such as the London Mozart Players and the Orchestra of English National Opera. Being currently active in the music profession enables me to teach based on my own first-hand experience with the current music scene. This kind of knowledge is invaluable to students.

Tutoring Approach:

From a young age I was blessed with a whole host of incredible instrumental teachers. Despite many of them having significant orchestral performance or conservatory teaching positions, they took a great deal of pride in teaching children in primary and secondary schools. The task of educating young people after all, is not something which should be overlooked in the slightest. A clear foundation of work ethic, discipline and commitment is fundamental and transferable to many different walks of life, not just the music profession. Therefore, I have the utmost respect for educators in this field and approach teaching the clarinet with a great deal of passion. Whenever I am presented with the opportunity to be involved in educational outreach programmes, orchestral workshops, or individual teaching, I am fully committed to sharing my enthusiasm for music and the clarinet. For me, teaching is an incredibly rewarding task and seeing students thrive and progress is insurmountably satisfying as an educator.

Of course, every student is different as and they all have individual needs, backgrounds, abilities, aspirations, and requirements. Therefore, being adaptable and flexible with my teaching is a skill I have honed over the years. Many students will excel at the technicalities of the clarinet without having much expression in phrasing of music, whilst others experience the opposite, longing to tell a story through music and held back by instrumental limitations. A balance is necessary, and a teacher must be able to help encourage and accelerate both abilities hand in hand. The more effective the student progress, the more enjoyment they gain from the learning process.

With younger instrumentalists, it is important that the clarinet tuition have relevance to the subject being taught in class and the levels which the students are working at, be that Key Stage Three, GCSE, or A Level. The lessons should enhance the student’s knowledge of the curriculum on a much deeper level, and their grades in music should reflect accordingly.
