Personal Description:

I am a composer, piano and viola performer, and I lecture music technology in Bristol. I use Logic and Ableton, samplers and synths. I have enhanced CRB / DBS checks updated yearly. My strengths are in getting your piano, upper strings and music production skills improved!

I have written music for film and tv for the past decade, alongside teaching music and managing music departments in Bristol and Somerset. I’ve written and released soundtracks for internationally released cinema and adverts, and released music for artists on my own record label Paper Folds Ltd.

I’ve released electronic and classical music on several record labels, and written several works for theatre and concert performance.

I have Grade 8 piano and viola performance and enjoy teaching beginner to intermediate level.

I hold expertise in music technology and production and am able to mentor and teach production and composition to degree level. I can guide, mentor and teach you to GCSE and A-Level examinations in both Music Tech. and straight Music courses.

Tutoring Experience:

I have a Masters level PGCE in music education. I have managed music departments at City Academy Bristol and Wells Blue School. I have over ten years expensive working with students aged 7-19 and love working with young people.

I have taught and gained excellent results in GCSE Music, A Level Music and Music Technology, and BTec Music / Musuc Technology.

I have much experience teaching and mentoring music technology and production and have both education and industry.

Tutoring Approach:

My approaches differ slightly for performance and for music tech. and production.
I advocate students learning piano and strings in line with ABRSM graded exams. Technique focused, I aim to get students performing work lyrically and to build both skill and stamina. I am reward focused and believe learning should be enjoyable at all ages!

Music production skills can be taught as you would like. I can review your own work writing, mixing and mastering, working to improve your projects in your studio. Alternatively I can give you courses from total beginner to advanced, leading you through projects to increase your skill set.
