Information About Tristan - Horley teacher
I have been playing guitar for 13 years and in that time I have been taught by some of the finest teachers in the world (Dario Cortese, Tolis Zavaliaris (Vanessa Mae), lee hodgson, Gianluca Corona etc). It has always been my passion and ever since I started playing I have studied various styles and players to a very high level. I have spent all my playing life honing my technique, ear and knowledge of music and I am a huge fan of all kinds of music. Particularly Metal, contemporary, jazz and classical, but I am also building up a collection of world music (Particularly balkan).
I had acheived my grade 8 by the time i was 15 and more recently won the 'andy james solo competition', in which players across the country were asked to perform a solo over a privided backing track. I won the regional finals in kettering.
I was also a student at the 'ICMP' in kilburn where I had the chance to study with some of the best guitarists in the business.
I am currently in a disco/functions band called 'Groove Connection' who also go out as a latin/italian band called falcon, we do regular gigs all over the country.
I have been teaching privately for 6 years, including a primary school for the last year. This has given me valuable experience in teaching very young children aswell as children with learning/behavioural problems.
I have seen many students through there rockschool grades including 2 with merit and 2 with distinction.
I am a very laid back person and this is reflected in my teaching. I still strive to get results and can push students to where they need to be, but I think that positive motivation is often the best route.
I like to get students excited about the guitar and try to apply relative skills in way that is personal to each student.
I can also help students with sight reading and music theory.
