I am an International examiner for London College Of Music/University of West London/RGT examinations.
For many years I was Lead Tutor for Rock & Pop Development with the Blackburn with Darwen Music Service. This involved working with teachers covering over 900 pupils in Primary, Secondary & 6th Form colleges, to develop the learning of all styles of rock & pop instruments. I wrote the complete Internal Award Exam Syllabus for Guitar & Bass for the Borough, and developed the Music Ambassadors. I also help with training new Examiners for Removed.
I have over 30 years teaching experience and currently teach & provide support to pupils for G.C.S.E & ‘A’ level performance, composition, theory, Music ICT, plus write & deliver courses for Gifted & Talented pupils.
I have three books of Classical guitar compositions published by CORDA music, and am registered with the RGT, NME & Rockschool to prepare pupils if required for exams in Classical/Acoustic/Bass/Electric guitar, 5 String Banjo, Irish Tenor Banjo, Mandolin and Ukulele. I also enter pupils for the Associated Exam Board & Trinity College exams. I teach Associated Exam Board theory & R.G.T/London College Rock/Pop theory exams. My teaching has recently been Quality Assured through the Blackburn with Darwen Music Hub, and I hold the enhanced DBS clearance. In January 2015 I was awarded ‘Experienced Exam Tutor’ status by the RGT, for continued success with pupils in the exams. I also help train new RGT examiners.
My approach is to provide structured learning tailored to the needs of the pupil, in a friendly, supportive and encouraging way.
