Personal Description:

Hi! My name is Richard . I'm 27 years old and am a freelance double bassist with a number of orchestras across the UK, including the BBC Philharmonic, CBSO, Hallé, RPO, RLPO, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, and BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

I completed my master's degree in double bass performance at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, followed by a post masters programme at the Royal Northern College of Music. I previously completed an undergraduate degree in music at St Anne's College, University of Oxford, and have studied double bass under Thomas Martin (London Symphony Orchestra), Tony Alcock (City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra), and Charles Wall (City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra).

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught for a number of years at King Edward's School in Edgbaston, where I have a healthy class of bassists ranging from beginner to grade 8. I also teach a number of students outside of school in person and over Zoom.

Tutoring Approach:

I encourage students to pursue their own interests in music, not just sticking to a grade syllabus but exploring a wide range of repertoire. Lessons are relaxed — music is best when enjoyed!

I produce my own exercises for students and compose pieces to aide with teaching, so rest assured that you will get tailor-made lessons.
