Personal Description:

I have been playing an performing on my instrument for over 13 years; I currently work as a session musician and have performed at many public concerts, and produced a number of professional recordings. I have higher education qualifications in areas that include but are not limited to music technology, production, composition, musicology, theory and performance. I have a Masters of music (MA) degree in musicology, a Post-Graduate diploma in composition and a Bachelor of Music Honours degree in Computer Sound Design, all from the University of Surrey. I am also currently studying part-time for a PhD in musicology at the University of Surrey, for which I won a government (AHRC) funded grant. My knowledge of music and music-technology is therefore very broad. My university career to date has given me excellent experience and understanding of the education sector, as well as the upmost confidence in my subject.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching adults and children privately for the last 5 years. I also work for a number of music services around Greater London, teaching groups of children music composition, music technology and guitar in schools. I have also given papers at many academic conferences, published papers in international journals, led seminars and given tutorials to students at university level.

Tutoring Approach:

I think the first objective in music tuition is to motivate the student to play. In order to do this I often try to encourage the student with demonstrations and with clear, easy-to-grasp ideas about what are the best ways to proficiency. In addition to this, my general approach is to relate the work we are doing to the students interests and intentions, which often means putting exercises and theoretical concepts in the context of some preferred style or technique. The aim is that the student develops a personal interest in the instrument, which, taken along with a general desire to impress (and not disappoint) third-parties such as myself and parents, should produce the commitment to the instrument that is foundational to development. My role is essentially maintaining this commitment and offering comprehensive guidance.
