Hi there! I am a young musician who has just moved back to London after spending 3 years working in Germany as a freelance musician. As well as learning a new language, I was able to travel around the world playing either saxophone or keyboards (sometimes both!) and gain much insight into how we interact with music and its effects in many different scenarios. I have assisted in Gospel workshops throughout Europe and held a few positiions as a Musical Director; namely over a piece of musical theatre in Hamburg, Germany entitles 'One Day On A SoulTrain'.
I have been teaching for the last 6 years in England and Germany with ages ranging from 5-60. I have taught those wanting to learn for fun, to those preparing for school auditions or ABRSM grades. However, I always encourage students to see music and learning thier instrument as more than merely passing exams.
I ran an after school musical club in Germany for children aged 6-8 in which we sang, played musical games, listened to new music, drew and painted on occasion.
I can also teach in German if needed.
My aim in teaching is to give an overall experience of music, understanding your relationship with your instrument and having fun! I tailor my lessons to what the student wants to learn, whether it be the latest Rhianna song or preparing for a Grade exam, because even in the most basic pop song, we can learn skills such as selective listening, key and basic transcription. I also encourage listening and singing (or whistling ;) ) Like I was told years ago, 'If you can sing it, you can play it!'
