Information About John - Macclesfield tutor
I am a highly experienced Trombone player and professional peripatetic brass teacher, passionate about brass playing and sharing my knowledge and experiences with students. My principal instrument is Trombone but I am qualified and have experience teaching all brass Instruments.
I studied the Trombone to the highest level at The Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester and then progressed to a Postgraduate Certificate of Education in Music with Specialist Instrumental Teaching Manchester Metropolitan University.
I have been teaching Brass Instruments for many years now with local ensembles, by having my own private pupils and professionally, I work as a Peripatetic Brass teacher with Staffordshire Performing Arts (SPA), delivering one to one, group and whole class instrumental lessons. I also direct a number of ensembles for (SPA). I previously taught brass for Merchant Taylors' Boys' School in Crosby, Liverpool.
I am happy to teach any age of pupil as anyone can benefit from the enjoyment of learning a brass instrument! It is never too late or too early to start to learn. My professional work covers all ages both Primary (Key Stages 1 and 2) and Secondary (Key stages 3, 4 and 5). I frequently enter pupils for the Associate Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) exams and pride myself on having never had a pupil fail. ABRSM exams post Grade 5 harbour valuable UCAS points, an extra great reason to enter. In addition to these Graded exams, I prepare children for recital performances for GCSE and A Level music exams.
