Personal Description:

Hi! I'm Sam, and I love to teach. There's nothing more rewarding than observing that lightswitch moment when someone finally gets something.

I'm classically trained on violin and clarinet but love popular music. I spent years writing, recording, and touring the UK in a band, releasing charting pop/rock music. I now run my own company, Pick Up Goliath, offering bespoke composition, audio editing/mixing/mastering, post-production, and arrangement and transcription services.

I compose directly for client briefs, as well as writing production music for some prestigious libraries. I work out of my studio at home, where I'm fully equipped to compose, record and produce, and can do all these things remotely with clients too.

Tutoring Experience:

I taught composition, songwriting, and music production at The BRIT School for six years, supporting some of the country's best young talent to develop their skills. Students of mine include Raye, Rex Orange County, black midi, and Jade Bird, all of whom are doing exceptionally well on the international circuit. I also create a lot of educational video content, both through my YouTube channel and TikTok.

Tutoring Approach:

Students need to 'do' to learn. I strongly believe in a hands-on approach, ensuring that a student applies their new knowledge at every stage in the learning process in order to embed the skills fully. Tuition should always be pitched appropriately for a student's ability but challenging. The reward of nailing something seemingly impossible is immeasurable!
