Personal Description:

Hello! My name is Louis. I am 23 years old and I am a musician and composer living in Birmingham. I have been working as a bass guitarist since I was 17. I have played the piano from an early age. In altogether previous life I also achieved Grade 8 and had professional ambitions as a classical Bassoon player. I am from a musical family so have been around music all of my life. Music has enriched my life in so many ways but teaching has had the biggest impact on me. Seeing a students curiosity and interest reminds me why I do what I do. I am always proud to be a part of anyone's musical development, whether they enjoy music as a hobby or are working towards grades or even a professional career.

Tutoring Experience:

My first experience teaching was as a teaching assistant in a secondary school in 2016. Here I learned how to engage with younger students and how to help pupils when they find tasks challenging. Since 2017 I have been teaching private students from the Midlands and the South of England. In 2019 I completed a 'Pedagogy' course through my University. With this, I was able to marry the skills I'd learned as a Teaching Assistant with my music experience. In the past, my experience as a music tutor has been intermittent whilst working around a busy performing schedule but the current situation has given me the chance to hone my skills as a tutor. I am experienced working in a 1-1 setting as well as with groups.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that everybody benefits from engaging with music. I welcome students with all interests and ambitions; be it professional aspirations or just as a casual interest! Students and I will talk about musical experience, musical ambitions/aims and their own musical taste! This is all for me to get a feel for what the student might want or be expecting from these lessons. What follows in lessons is entirely dependant on age and ability. If needed we might begin with how to hold or tune the instrument, or have the student perform some repertoire if possible. In this first lesson we are aiming to have students looking forward to what they will soon be able to achieve on the instrument! My goal is always for my students to be enjoying the process of learning.
