PLEASE BE AWARE I AM CURRENTLY UNABLE TO TAKE ON NEW STUDENTS UNTIL THE SUMMER. HOWEVER PLEASE DO BE IN TOUCH TO DISCUSS OR TO BOOK A PRIVATE SONGWRITING/VOCAL WORKSHOP. , , Hello, I am Jenna. I have over 12 years of professional experience within the industry. I am a singer/ songwriter and artist. As a tutor I teach music 121, in small groups and am a choir conductor. I also audition applicants for BIMM - so I know what is expected for those hoping to successfully apply for vocational courses in music. Some of my professional credits includes gigging with the Ben Howard, Seth Lakeman, Eliza Carty, Brother and Bones, Moya and Alabama 3. , , I studied a Degree in Professional Musicianship, majoring in Songwriting and here I learnt so much more about the music industry, performance, singing and writing - and I hope to pass this on to you. I have also been a promoter, recording artist, session singer, managed my band and set up my own music business. I was nominated for the UK Young Songwriter's award twice in 2011 and 2012 and performed all over the South and London. My most recent project is currently in the finals of the International Songwriter's Award!, , I am a qualified teacher who holds DBS and is a member of the Musicians Union and the Society of Education and Teaching. , , I have taught for 2 years privately and have worked at BIMM and Chichester College. I have experience of working with students with severe behavioural, emotional, learning difficulties/disabilities and mental health issues. I am an energetic tutor who brings positivity, personality and fun into every lesson - whatever age ! I specialise in creative education and so I enjoy the challenge of designing engaging and unique lesson plans for my students. , , Every student will decide how they want to learn, with my guidance, to ensure they are working on what they want and in a way that suits them.

Rock, Metal and Blues., I'd prefer to teach those who are just beginning due to having a LOT of patience and feeling that once you get to an advanced stage there are probably more advanced teachers out there. However, I do have a good knowledge of theory and ways of teaching it that don't make it such hard work. I'm also happy to speand as long as you like going over songs you wish to learn or going through a more structured plan from the roots up., Also have an amplifier for you to use and lots of effects to play with. I currently study at the BIMM on a Professional higher Diploma and can pass on a lot of useful tools and styles.
