Personal Description:

I am an enthusiastic young musician who has been teaching/performing all over the country for the past 8 years. I'm currently finishing a degree at the Royal Academy of Music in London, studying jazz piano on the BMus Jazz course. Ready to help anyone as much as I can with my knowledge of the instrument, and in particular the jazz idiom.

Tutoring Experience:

Private tuition Exeter - Devon 2012 - 2017
Private piano/music theory teaching experience of around 50 students. Ages ranging from 6 years to 65 years old. Successfully put many students through their ABRSM exams with 100% pass rate. Abilities ranged from beginner to grade 7 standard, and I taught a variety of genres ranging from classical, to jazz and popular music.

The Devon Youth Jazz Orchestra - Exeter 2015 - 2020
Has been teaching with the Devon Youth Jazz Orchestra as the Rhythm Section Tutor, being involved with regularly monthly rehearsals and also their annual 3 day residential. Teaching with both the younger and older bands, each with around 30 students in each. Was involved in helping during a trip to the Montreux jazz Festival in 2017, and also have been called upon to conduct both bands when one of the main conductors wasn’t available. Have taught group sessions, and also individual improvising classes to help specific students.

The Devon Youth Jazz Orchestra - DYJO Ambassadors 2019 - 2020
For the past year have been coaching and mentoring a small group of students from DYJO to go into primary schools to perform and run workshops to try to inspire young children to want to play an instrument. Part of the role was also to organise performance opportunities, and to have regular rehearsals, focusing on learning by ear and improvisation.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an experienced teacher with 7 years experience of teaching a wide range of ages (6-65) to abilities (beginner to semi professional.) I've put many people through graded classical exams, but I mainly specify in teaching jazz and improvisation. I can teach online via zoom, and am fully DBS checked so teaching young children isn't a problem. For more information, please get in touch
