Biography

Hi! My name's Adrian and I've recently left secondary school music teaching after 32 years to pursue my main interests, i.e. playing music and teaching privately!

I've been a classical guitarist and pianist since my school days, and after leaving school I studied Music at Manchester University and got my teaching qualification from Reading University.

I've been a Head of Music in several schools since I started teaching in 1985, but always intended one day to leave and concentrate on private teaching and performing. I give lots of concerts and perform with many local groups, as soloist/duetist on classical guitar or soloist, accompanist, or as part of a jazz orchestra/dance band on piano.

In addition to instrumental teaching on guitar and piano, I can cover all aspects of theory from beginner to advanced (degree level), including traditional harmony and theory, jazz harmony and improvisation, composition and techniques required for Music at GCSE andA Level. In addition, I teach Music Technology and Sound Production/Recording.

I know a lot of people want to know what a potential music teacher thinks the balance should be between playing for exams and playing for pleasure? In my view, playing music is all about enjoyment, fun and developing a beautiful skill - and exams are a good way to let an expert musician comment upon how your skills are developing, and that's how they should be seen - not as an end in themselves. After all, a lot of the fun in music comes from realising that you are getting better at it!!

So, as you can probably guess, I'm a real music enthusiast, and love what I do! Have a look at my testimonials page to see what wonderfully kind comments have been made by students I've worked with before! I didn't bribe them, honestly!

If you want lessons which are fun and personalised, and make you want to learn more about this wonderful subject, give me a call and let's arrange to meet up and see if I can help!
