Personal Description:

Specialises in tutoring young people ages 4-18 in Music Theory. And also in Piano (especially children beginners who are looking to start learning the instrument). *Or also, adults who always wanted to learn a bit about music or the piano but just never did! (also the likes of classical/pop music appreciation)*
Cheap and affordably priced tutoring for High School Music and Intermediate ABRSM Music Theory students and Beginner Piano with one of their own (but experienced) peers.
*Only doing video lessons (Skype etc.) for the time being*. (but also not sure, as of yet, how i'll be moving forward after we've passed this current U.K. Quarantine).
Robert is currently studying for entry into the BMus Composition course at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS). Studying ABRSM Grade 8 piano and Grade 8 Music Theory and achieved Distinction (90%+) in ABRSM Grade 5 Piano (going directly to Grade 8) and distinction in Grade 5 Music Theory. Also achieved at high school Scottish National 5 Music (A) and Higher Music (A) (achieved full marks on both instrumental performances on both courses).
Instead of attending Secondary Year 6 (S6) and Advanced Higher Music, decided to leave secondary school and study music from home, until achieving Grade 8 piano for enrolment to BMus at RCS. Also while working part time for Netherwood Ltd. (and has been doing so for the last year). Throughout 2019 studied piano with Michael W. (BEd) and composition and orchestration with Derek W. (PhD).

Can provide tutoring for ABRSM Students looking to sit their Grade 5 Music Theory Exam (Robert understands how important it is for instrumental students to pass Grade 5 theory in order to advance onto Grade 6 exams) and provide tutoring for the preceding grades also. Robert achieved distinction (90%+) in Grade 5 Theory and is currently studying Grade 8 Theory so has covered most of the syllabus beyond Grade 5 as well.
Can also tutor Music students in Secondary School for S1-S4 classroom exams. For school students struggling with theoretical concepts.
Also provide tutoring for National 5 and Higher Music syllabus and help students prepare for prelim exams and for the final exams in May.
*Has been taught (and also knows how to pass these skills down onto students) how to pass National 5 and Higher exams securely and achieve high marks.*

Tutoring Experience:

Has had experience teaching Michael W.'s (his piano teacher) students theory. Preparing them for their Grade 5 Theory exams, while his teacher concentrated with them on piano. They all achieved Merits or higher. Has sat in during many lessons with his piano teacher, teaching his other students. Quite regularly has collaborated and worked together with his piano teacher in teaching other students.
Has had many experiences teaching lessons (restricted to only very locally) in music theory and piano. Although, these lessons were free of charge.

Tutoring Approach:

Robert is young and enthusiastic. Interested in (and enjoys) teaching music theory and believes it is important to move along at whatever pace the student feels comfortable with.
