I am an experienced final year university music student based in Glasgow. Although my primary focus is music analysis, theory, and composition, I have covered a wide range of modules and topics such as:
* Harmony and Counterpoint (rudimentary and advanced)
* Music Cultures of the World
* 19th Century Symphony
* Popular Music Analysis
* Jazz History in Context
* Classical/Contemporary Music Composition
* Women in Music
* Music Teaching in Context
* Notation and Editing
* 20th Century Classical Composition
I am relatively new to teaching music, but I have a vast knowledge of musical repertoire, dating 1700-present day. I have perfect pitch and have taught myself multiple instruments to a high standard of technicality. I am more than capable of communicating musical concepts effectively using examples to help students. I am highly fluent in the SQA music syllabus, attaining listening grades exceeding 90% in all available music qualifications during high school. I plan to study music in Milan, Italy later this year to better my knowledge even further. I have studied music theory, history and composition at the highest level with some of the most respected music minds/ composers in the field nationally during my time as a student at Bangor University, North Wales. I have been taught by teachers/conductors who adjudicate and work closely with institutions such as the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS) and guest lecture in music at the University of Oxford. My academic references are as follows:
“Reece is a dedicated musician who has a wide knowledge of different musical genres, from pop and rock to classical. His interests range across all aspects of music and music history, including composition, musical analysis, and music teaching. I'm pleased to say that he managed to study all of these aspects of music at Bangor University. I taught him in several courses, where I found Reece to be an ideal student. His thirst for musical knowledge would often lead to him to undertake individual research, from which he would develop original perspectives on a topic. His has great potential to succeed in the worlds of music scholarship and music education.”
Stephen Rees, Bangor University.
"Reece was a conscientious and committed pupil in the department while I was Faculty Head of Performing Arts at St Andrew’s High School in Coatbridge. Unfortunately, since I retired from St Andrew’s, I have had no influence over Reece’s music education but can assure you of his reliability, honesty and dedication to music and the department. I was always extremely impressed by his passion for music and in particular his love of performance and composition. Reece is an unassuming, humble, individual who appreciates greatly any advice, support or encouragement that is given to him. Reece was always a reflective pupil who thought carefully about feedback, took it on board and used it to enhance his learning opportunities and school experiences.
Reece was highly regarded by all school staff, clerical staff and janitorial staff, he was a highly respected pupil
with incredible manners and integrity. In my Faculty, Reece was an outstanding pupil and was a delight to have in the classroom, school band and the department. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to email me."

I am ideally looking to concentrate on teaching students who are preparing for SQA music exams/ portfolios, but I will make exceptions to teach people who are interested in developing their musical vocabulary. I aspire to be an engaging teacher who can make students feel comfortable in my presence and cater to their curiosity about music. I fully understand that every student learns and flourishes in their own way and at their own pace, which I always take into account when communicating about music. I want each lesson to be entertaining as well as interesting for students. I like to think outside the box and use figurative examples to explain things in relation to music. I feel my approach is the best way to fully prepare students for exams, leaving no room for doubt in their learning. I feel my knowledge can benefit less experienced musicians and allow them to appreciate music in a completely new light.
