Personal Description:

I am a student at Goldsmiths University studying music with the Ivashkin scholarship. I am interested in a wide range of genres of music, classically trained in piano, cello and classical guitar, jazz trained for vocals, bass and electric guitar.

I've had experience in pit bands for productions such as Bugsy Malone on bass, played guitar with Jazz bands such as Guernsey Jazz Orchestra and have toured across Germany, Spain and China playing guitar and singing. I'm currently cellist and vocalist on a European tour with Tom Rosenthal, although this is spread over many dates and doesn't interfere with teaching! I've also played guitar with my band Canvus across the south of the UK, including Southampton, Andover and Winchester.

Regarding musical composition, I am the music director for Slipshod Theatre, for which I have written the music for two shows and then performed it solo and live (Who Killed Franz Ferdinand) on piano and ukulele or lead a pit band (The Babushka). I have recently just been Musical Director for 'Space Junk', an original jukebox musical, which we ran at Edinburgh Fringe for 2 weeks.

I do media composition work too, composing my first feature length film this year called 'Tales from the Apocalypse' which is to be released very soon.

You can find my own songs and work under Maddie on Spotify and on other social media platforms.

I've been fortunate to work alongside prestigious guitarists such as Craig Ogden and Gary Ryan, and cellist Raphael Wallfisch.

Tutoring Experience:

I teach students piano with aims of working through grades as well as playing more contemporary style keyboard. Whether you want to learn classical piano or just want to learn to read music so you can play songs you like, I'm happy to cater!
With guitar I teach acoustic- finger style and chords to some, electric guitar to others and classical guitar. I also have a handful of bass students.
My cello pupils also span a wide playing ability from beginners to people who have had a few years of experience.
For families or friends, I've happily taught joint lessons, where duets and trios can be a lot of fun!

Tutoring Approach:

Regarding my approach to teaching music, I understand the need to cater to difference preferences and learning styles. For those who want to take grades and progress as a classical music, I focus my efforts mostly in improving sight-reading, musicianship and technique. For those who want to learn with a more laid back approach, I'll tend to focus on learning skill sets to play certain songs - for example barring on guitar or fingerpicking. I am also open for joint lessons for those who want to learn side by side, which can be particularly useful for siblings or friends who want to play together.
I usually suggest a book for students to use, which I find most effective. However, if a student has already learnt previously with another teacher I'm happy to continue with that! I tend to use one book primarily for each instrument, and then use other pieces outside of the book to make the learning more varied and broad. Piece suggestions are always welcome.
With children, I often work with flashcards and musical games for engagement and concentration.
I tend to work on a 1 lesson a week basis as this seems most effective. However I am flexible to teach whenever suits you best- one off consultation lessons, or fortnightly longer lessons are also possible.
