Personal Description:

I am 29, currently living in South Shields and am currently Tenor Lay Clerk (professional Tenor) at Newcastle Cathedral. My love of music started when I was only 6, I started singing In a choir and took up flute. I was a member of school and county wind bands and choirs and through my various tutors who guided and taught me I have had an amazing journey.
My career has had many highlights with a wealth of musical experience. I have sung live on BBC Radio Lancashire, BBC Radio Three, and BBC One, I have sung in Westminster Abbey, Blackburn, Norwich and St Mary's Episcopal Cathedrals, Preston and Beverley Minster and Lancaster Priory where I sung both as a soloist and as part of a choir. I got the privilege to sing for HRH Queen Elizabeth twice (Golden Jubilee and Royal Maundy). My career is still going from strength to strength and I am teaching on the side to help inspire a new generation of musicians.

Tutoring Experience:

In my seven years as a music tutor I have gained a wealth of experience in many different areas. Between 2014-2017, I was music tutor for Wigan Music Service where I taught pupils from year 3 upwards in a wealth of different instruments including: Keyboard, Clarinet, Flute, Saxophone and vocals. The students who took exams all passed. Alongside this I held vocal tutor positions at Upholland High school and a Glenburn Sports College.
Previously I was at Blackburn Cathedral 2012-2014, I was theory tutor to the choristers there and also had a private pupil who passed. I was also Cathedral Outreach Anameteur Singtogether where I helped teach over 250 music teachers and 3500 primary school children in the Blackburn and surrounding diocese. We taught a set group of songs and a set medley in 7 months which saw everyone perform in a group of concerts over three nights, with an audience of 1000 a night and one of the songs was signed.
Subsequently while I was studying for my degree I helped Kirklees Music Service 2010-2012 teaching wider oops brass to year four and rehearsal tutor to: pop choir, junior choir, junior and senior windband and with a colleague I ran a flute choir to help students with their ensemble playing. I have a current DBS and looking for more students who are looking to learn an instrument.

Tutoring Approach:

Music tuition is a very individual experience. Each student learns in a different way and I seek ways to unlock this. Lessons will be sculpted with the individual in mind for every aspect at all levels. I can teach either for fun or to gear towards exams. Please feel free to message me. free most days and evenings except Thursday and Sunday
