Information About Will - Manchester teacher
This is how a referee rated Will:
I am currently studying a masters in Classical guitar at the RNCM under Craig Ogden. I also have a first class Honours degree in music from the University of Newcastle and have been involved in a wide range of performance projects including solo recitals, chamber music, bands and theatrical productions around the North East of England. Alongside the classical Guitar, i am also a performer of different styles of music including jazz, rock and pop on the electric guitar and equally enjoy playing and teaching these styles. I have regularly performed with the University Theatre Society as well as Salsa Ensembles in a wide range of theatrical productions, concerts and function bands. Having spent my third year of university attending the Conservatorio Superior de Musica de Castilla y Leon in Salamanca, Spain, I have focused on honing my skills as a guitarist while absorbing rich cultural and musical experiences that I relate back to the guitar.
I give one to one private lessons from both absolute beginners to more capable students. I recently taught as part of an International music summer school at Winchester College, both as a guitar tutor and staff member. As a member of staff at the Ingenium Academy, it was my responsibility to work with due to care and skill to provide leadership and guidance to all students.
I have assisted pupils as part of Music service extra tuition mornings that take place on weekends. It was there that I assisted the children who particularly struggled with their music reading and playing. Working with a range of children at different ages and stages of development has given me further experience as to how to approach each student in a way that is beneficial to them. Further voluntary sessions in Wakefield Manygates Music Centre has enabled me to focus on larger ensembles which entails supporting and teaching 8-16 year olds. I have taught one to one lessons with beginners as well as accompanying more experienced players in concert situations, offering performance and music theory coaching.
Based on my guitar concert history and performing as a solo musician for much of the time, preparing for performance deadlines in an independent and effective manner is something I strive for in my own practise time. Having determination to be organised and achieve high standards is something I look to encourage and support students within their own practise. The tuition I currently receive at the RNCM is continuing to refine and push my own abilities as a musician and I seek to pass on this training. I hope to encourage those wanting to learn the guitar, either for fun or for exams, to strive and push themselves musically for their own personal success. I focus on improving technical facility of the instrument as well as
