Information About Oscar - Northolt teacher - (36 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Oscar:
£17 an hour but the FREE FIRST LESSON ~ In it I can show you how to play the FOUR chords that you need in order to play MOST popular music (as long as you know how to use something called a "capo") I have been teaching for 24 years and I believe in making things as simple as possible and in using the sharpest tools available.
I have taught all ages, at various levels of competence, at schools, in groups, face-to-face and via the internet, catering for a wide range of styles and interests from exams to professional aspirations and simply for fun.
I tailor my lessons around the student's requirements, values and learning objectives and I pride myself in making learning entertaining, quick, effective and stimulating. I love music, I've been a guitarist and lead singer in a few bands and I have much experience assisting students with mastering performance anxiety and stage fright. I also teach singing and song writing and I'm familiar with The Music Grading Curriculum which counts towards University UCAS points.
I have a University degree, I'm training to become a life coach, I am passionate about education, I am flexible when booking lessons and I have a CRB/DBS check certificate. There's free street parking where I live. I can also come to see students (at a small extra cost) and I find that Skype calls are an increasingly popular, convenient and cheaper option as I then charge only £15 an hour.

Great value for money
during the time I have been working with Oscar I have found that my playing has improved greatly
as a partially self taught musician I already knew 'the basics' but with Oscar's tuition I have greatly improved my technique and have had comments made by professional musicians who have seen my playing improve since working with Oscar
I would recommend Oscar without hesitation to anyone looking for a Tutor in the Northolt or West London area
Your teaching at home facilities need to be looked at, as I was not comfortable with having a one to one lesson in a room that was a bedroom.
Neither were my family.
This is not the professional set up I was expecting.
I live in a one bedroom flat. There is a bedroom, a living room, a bathroom and small kitchen and it is most unfortunate that you seem to have confused my sofa for a bed and decided to give me a negative review before coming for the second of the two free lessons I offered you. I also offered you a free CDROM course valued at £45 also for free. I am not sure what else I could have done.
No one has complained about where I live in the 14 years that I have been living and teaching from home. I have been teaching for over twenty years, I have taught at schools, businesses and privately and this is the first time something like this has ever happened. Clearly nothing is so simple that it cannot be misunderstood and the greatest problem in communication is the illusion that it has been accomplished.
I am sorry that we got off to an unfortunate start and if you change your mind and would like two more free Spanish lessons then I would be very happy to oblige.
To any one reading this, please know that I extend the same courtesy to you as I did to this lady. TWO free Spanish lessons and a most awesome CDROM course also for free.
Allow me to also point out something that a wise man once said: "we are disturbed not by what happens to us, but by our thoughts about what happens"
Thank you Oscar.
It was good to meet with you yesterday. Please note that Katie sometimes needs things to be said a couple of times before she understands it - I have said to her that I don't think you would have any problem with that. It would be good if we could agree a set time and date each week. I hope that is useful. Thank you. Paul
My son AIden had 4 lesson so **Web Address Removed**'s going good.One thing Aiden has pointed out was that he needs more finger training.As he often plays a piece mainly using his right hand and at intervals he needs use his left hand to accompany the piece and lot of the time he does make the right intervention with his left hand,because he switched on using right hand.
