Information About Patrick - Streatham teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Patrick:
Professional and dedicated clarinet, saxophone and music theory teacher based in central and south London, with experience performing across the UK and teaching musicians of all ages and abilities.
I have taught privately since 2010, and have taught in music centres across London since 2016. I am a consultant music tutor for the London Music Centre, and work for the Wandsworth Music Academy and Fern Hill Music Centre. My teaching work includes tutoring beginners up to post grade 8, adults and children, one-to-one and whole classrooms, teaching instrumental lessons and music theory, and coaching youth orchestras. I am employed to teach the clarinet, saxophone, flute, recorder and theory in schools, music centres and for my own private practice.
I am also busy as a performer, playing the clarinet, saxophone and flute in orchestras, chamber groups, big bands and theatre bands.
I am formally trained in performance, improvisation, composition, harmony & counterpoint, orchestration, musical theory, history, analysis & aesthetics.
My approach is tailored to the needs of each unique student. The learning can be structured around preparing for exams, if that is the pupil's wish, or around personal targets. I approach the study of instrumental technique through the needs of repertoire, always keeping musical understanding and performance delivery at the forefront of discussions. I will help students to learn repertoire for their own enjoyment, for exams, or for performance with amateur orchestras and bigbands. I also teach through improvisation - both classical and jazz - for those who wish.
