Mr Rob Marenghi

Dear Sir/Madam,

I hope you are well.

My name is Rob Marenghi and I am a music teacher. I have been a lead tutor for the Mayor of Newham's Every Child a Musician program for the last 6 years and privately for 13 years. I have taught whole classes, small groups and individuals in both primary and secondary schools, as well as in people's houses. I play and teach guitar, piano, keyboard, ukulele, harmonica and flutophone.
Instruments: Guitar, Piano, Keyboard, Ukulele, Flutophone, Harmonica
Genre/Style(s): Acousitc guitar
Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


I am very passionate about music teaching and my lessons are efficient, fun, creative and technical. I have a well developed flare for behaviour management with young people of all ages and know that first 5 seconds of meeting a child can very much determine the future dynamic! One has to be firm but fair. I have worked with a children's orchestra for many years, performing everywhere from Stratford Town Hall to the Tower of London. I also work at the Mayor's Town Show in Newham every summer.

I am emotionally intelligent and have a knack for relating to young people and building rapport very quickly. Students have described me as 'cool' and 'honest'. I feel rapport is, along with patience, the primary (forgive the pun) virtue of tuitionn. My lessons receive 'Outstanding' when they are observed (I have the reports which I will happily send you if requested) and I have an up to date and clean advanced CRB check.

I have played in many bands which has honed my musical skills even further and made me realise the importance of creativity in music education; I know plenty of grade 8 musicians who freeze when asked to improvise! I always include at least 5 minutes of improvisation to exercise the children's imagination and self confidence. I also keep my thumb on the pulse of modern pop music and incorporate that into my tuition. I know a variety of warm up games, behaviour management strategies and songs old and new.

I would love to have a chat with you on the phone or come in for an interview as you came very highly recommended! My hours with Every Child a Musician are fairly sporadic in the year ahead, so I have lots of free time that could be spent teaching!

Best regards
