Personal Description:

London-based music tuition for Drums & Percussion, Guitar, Ukulele and Music Theory from £30 per hour.

I am a charismatic and driven full-time music tutor & touring multi-instrumentalist with a passion to share the knowledge I have acquired with my students!

Alongside teaching grades privately and in schools, I have spent the last decade touring the UK & Europe supporting prolific artists such as Ian Dury, The Kills, Starsailor, Sunset Sons, The Subways and Arcane Roots. In addition to tour supports, I've performed live at most of the UK’s largest festivals including Reading & Leeds, Isle of Wight, Y Not?, TRNSMT, Victorious, Sheffield Tramlines, The Alternative Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Margate Wonderland and Wilkestock to name a few. I have also recorded in professional studios across England as both a permanent and session musician at the likes of Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios, Monnow Valley, The Premises Studios and Livingston Studios.

Since moving to London in 2011, I have built strong relationships with a wide range of musicians and have gone on to create music featured on BBC Radio 2, Radio X, BBC Introducing, Classic Rock, Planet Rock etc.

All of the above experience has given me a unique perspective to my teaching style with a large emphasis on live performance, effective rehearsal practises and strong discipline, something that isn’t commonly taught amongst tuition at school.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch or ask me any questions!

I look forward to hearing from you.
Many thanks,

Thomas

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching privately and in schools for the last 7 years, most recently at Smallberry Green Primary School in Isleworth and at West Ashtead Primary School in Ashtead, Surrey.

I have had the privilege of working with students from a wide range of different backgrounds and ages, from 4-45, and have developed a strong understanding of how best to tailor my lessons to meet the bespoke needs of each of my tutees.

I teach a variety of music both casually and graded (Trinity Guildhall, Trinity Rock & Pop or Rockschool) which include Guitar, Drums/ Percussion, Ukulele & Music Theory.

Tutoring Approach:

As a teacher I always set out to find the most enjoyable and effective method of learning for each and every one of my students. I offer a free introductory lesson so that we can get to know each other and set out the goals you want to achieve from the very start.

I have a strong belief that an open and welcoming approach to learning your instrument is the most beneficial way of bettering yourself and ensuring a bright and enduring interest in music going forward.

Whether it be casual, graded or specific techniques you desire to learn, I will provide a fun and interactive lesson plan whilst teaching what I feel to be at least the essential basics of music theory, all the while encouraging your own rehearsal schedule in order to gain the best possible results together.
