Personal Description:

I am a patient and enthusiastic music educator and guitar/ukulele tutor with 16 years of playing experience, and 9 years of teaching experience. I pride myself on the friendly and supportive atmosphere created in my lessons, as well as my uniquely tailored approach to my students' musical education.

I have performed in a wide variety of genres: from rock and blues to classical guitar (gaining a Grade 8 Distinction aged 17), from jazz and musical theatre to modern experimental music. I bring this wealth of musical experience into my lessons.

I am a regular performer, and personal highlights include regular performances at well-renowned music venue The Talking Heads during my Undergraduate Degree in Southampton, and performing at the 2015 Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. I also perform regularly at my church, helping to lead worship and often directing the band/arranging music for the service.

I studied and gained a Music BA (Hons) from the University of Southampton, providing me with a wide knowledge-base, and equipping me with the necessary skills for performing and teaching. I utilise these expertise in my lessons to give my students a well-rounded musical education. I am also a highly trained and experienced composer/arranger with a strong grasp of music theory gained through rigorous study at university.

Tutoring Experience:

I am an experienced tutor through delivering nine years of private lessons to a wide variety of ages and abilities of students, most of whom developed a love of their subject which persists to this day.

I studied and gained a PGDE from Nottingham Trent University after training to teach music, where I gained valuable experience of teaching more broadly, as well as teaching specifically music. I taught both GCSE and A-level students, as well as key stage 3.

My current day-job is working for Warwickshire Music, teaching music and guitar/ukulele to primary and secondary aged students. I have an advanced DBS certificate, which is necessary for me to work in this role. My teaching experience is broad having taught all ages, which makes it easy for me to adapt my lessons to individual need and ability.

I have experience in preparing students for Rockschool and Trinity guitar exams, and would encourage my students to consider studying for exams. However this will be the students' decision, and there is plenty to learn without studying for exams; I never force my students down a particular route, but view my role as facilitating the route the student chooses to take.

Tutoring Approach:

I focus on a holistic approach to guitar and music tuition, as each of the areas I teach interlink. For instance, guitar/ukulele students will not only learn how to play their instrument, but will also learn elements of music theory, music technology, and songwriting as relevant to their needs.

Students wanting to study composition or music theory will also gain some basic skills on piano and an understanding of how to write and arrange music. This would be particularly useful to those studying GCSE or A level music, the composition aspects of which I have taught over the past year.

I also personalise my lessons: the first thing I ask my students is "What do you want to learn? Is there a particular song/tune/style of music you want to play?" This way I enthuse students from the first lesson with the music they are interested in, and once they have mastered the genre we discuss where we might want to move on to next. My tuition is a collaborative endeavour between me and my student, and I always support my students in whatever way they need.
