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 and also taking a contemporary training in guitar. Growing up I've always enjoyed teaching and leading people, becoming the youngest leader of Berkshire Youth Guitar Orchestra, singing in choirs and playing in orchestras
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'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've been fortunate to work alongside prestigious guitarists such as Craig Ogden and Gary Ryan, and cellist Raphael Wallfisch.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught piano to a couple of students, working through grades as well as playing more contemporary style keyboard. I've also taught acoustic guitar- finger style and chords to a couple of students, as well as classical guitar. 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 will always offer my first lesson half price, so you can decide for sure whether you'd like to study further with me, and 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.
