Personal Description:

Hi, I'm Sophie and I am a professional musician in the North West. With two Music degrees from the University of Manchester and a prestigious playing career, I can offer a wide range of expertise in my teaching. My Masters degree is in Composition, with specialisms within that of Music Theory and History. I am also a professional freelance Double Bass and Bass Guitarist, appearing regularly with orchestras and ensembles in the North, as well as over 30 musical pit-band credits and a well-respected function and wedding band.

I am a confident and experienced teacher of music, both instrumentally and theory based. I am currently employed by Stockport Music Service and Derbyshire Music Partnership. I can cover all aspects of music theory up to ABRSM Grade 8 and GCSE and A-Level. I can also teach History of Music as well as aiding with listening and writing exercises to prepare for exams and coursework.

I can teach Bass Guitar and Double Bass in a variety of styles, including classical, rock, pop, jazz, blues and folk. I also teach the Violin and Classical Guitar/Ukulele. I am happy to work through grades or through other methods of progression without exams if you prefer. I am experienced teaching children and adults of all abilities and happy to travel or teach in my home.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught students of all ages and all abilities throughout my time at University and beyond. I have run workshops in schools on composition and performance, and I have given classes and workshops at the University as part of the Outreach programme to children with special needs, disadvantaged children and elderly people with dementia. I am currently employed by Stockport Music Service and Derbyshire Music Partnership, as well as teaching privately.

Tutoring Approach:

I have three approaches to music tuition. The most common is progression through Grades (ABRSM, Trinity, Rockschool etc) as this provides a quantifiable method of measuring improvement and many pupils work well with a goal-orientated structure.

However, for some students, exams are too stressful and they do not want to progress through Grades. If this is the case, I am happy to teach through pieces and exercises that I have selected to improve techniques and musicality with goals and a timeline.

Some students just want to learn for fun, or they may be picking up an instrument after years of not playing. If this is the case, I am more than happy to focus the lessons on having fun and learning pieces they can play to impress their friends and family rather than putting any pressure on.
