Information About Martin - Sutton Coldfield teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Martin:
I have been a professional musician for several years playing piano and keyboards. As well as teaching I perform live several times per week, as part of music duo's/bands around the country. My many years live playing experience is useful for teaching as I can quickly adapt to different styles and songs students may wish to learn.
I have taught piano and keyboard privately at home for several years. During this time I have taught in many styles including Jazz, Classical, Pop, Rock aswell as many others.
I have a 100% pass rate in Classical and Jazz Exams. With many pupils gaining Distinctions aswell as being selected to perform in concerts. (please note that exams are not compulsory in any way, exams should only be taken should the student wishes, the main thing is they have fun!)
I have also worked with Stagecoach musical theatre school, aswell as the Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre, running music and choir workshops for shows that have been on.
I firmly believe learning music should be about fun and enjoyment, and not seen as a textbook subject as so many make it out to be.
I always qualify the students own musical interests on their first lesson, so from the outset they can relate and play music they enjoy - this is especially so in younger students - who forcing them to play music they don't want to can put them off music forever!
