I'm an enthusiastic and adaptable bass player and tutor, with just over 8 years of experience.
As a self driven and hard-working musician I recently graduated from the British Institute of Modern Music (BIMM) Bristol with a First Class BA (Hons) Degree in Professional Musicianship, finishing top of my course. Subsequently, I have returned to BIMM on numerous occasions to share advice with first year students discussing the various elements required to succeed.
As a performing musician I have performed across the UK & Europe with a host of both originals and covers/function bands, with notable performances including; Soundwave Festival – Croatia; Mandrea Festival – Italy; Coronos Playas – Lanzarote; Glastonbury Festival – Glastonbury, UK; Boomtown Festival – Somerset, UK; Café Du Paris – Cool Venue Awards 2016 in Leicester Square - London, UK.
Playing with a variety of bands has given me the opportunity to immerse himself in a wide range of musical genres from Punk, Metal and Rock to Jazz, Funk, Soul, Disco, Motown and even Dub Reggae.
I have enjoyed tutoring students of a wide range of ages and abilities, from 7 to 53, from absolute beginners to advanced professionals, for just over 8 years. I've successfully tutored students who have undertaken graded exams, from Debut to Grade 8, primarily following the Rockschool and Trinity syllabus.
I always adapt my lessons to the individual, and make sure they are learning what they enjoy and what will ensure they improve.
I take elements from varying curriculums and resource books to make sure all elements such as technique, theory, general musicianship, and ensemble playing are covered.
Students are always encouraged to ask questions and bring in songs/pieces they wish to learn, so that they fully engage with their learning. Every lesson is delivered with a high level of patience and encouragement to ensure the students continue to learn in a constructive and fun environment, so they can fully reach their potential.
