I'm currently a student at Peter Symonds receiving lessons myself from Julian Poore. I passed my grade 8 with a merit a year previous and am currently working on extending my personal reportoire. I would really enjoy the opportunity to teach student below the ages of 14 on the trumpet or cornet.
Grade 8 in trumpet
Grade 5 theory
I like to hear exactly how the student will perform as an individual prior to me starting teaching to understand the way they approach their instrument before I step in to make changes. I will discuss with both parents and student if a grade is an aim from these lessons, but at no point will that be the end game. I want the student to garner from my lessons an appreciation of the correct way to perform on their instrument, with a solid foundation to their playing. I will introduce the student to music that suits their standard and at the same time pushes at their limits- there is an expectation of practice done outside of lessons, but it will not be scales every single week. The focus will be on playing to the best of their ability, while performing for enjoyment.
