Biography

Gordon has over 7 years experience as a one-to-one instrumental teacher and vocal coach. He began his career as a chorister at St. Mary's Episcopal Cathedral, Edinburgh in 2001 and became Head Chorister there in 2005.

Gordon then moved on to Fettes College and was awarded a full Music Scholarship in 2006. He graduated from there in 2011 having won 4 consecutive school singing competitions, 1 instrumental and 1 piano competition, and also completed his Grade 8 in Voice (143/150 Distinction) and 'Cello (Merit), and his Grade 6 in Piano (Distinction), playing to Grade 8 standard. He has competed in several Edinburgh International Music Festival classes, winning many including Gold in a vocal recital class in 2010. He performed in both the 2011 and 2012 Edinburgh International Festivals, firstly as a one man show, and in 2012 as part of a professional musical theatre review. Gordon clearly has a lot of knowledge of how to help his pupils succeed in a school music environment and beyond.

He then went on to study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, securing a Diploma in Higher Education (Music Performance) before dedicating his talents towards the study of an honours degree in Popular Music. He graduated with a First Class BA (hons) in Performance Industries from the University of Wolverhampton in association with The Academy of Music and Sound, Glasgow in September 2017.

In early 2017, Gordon was invited to support viral singer-songwriters 'Us the Duo' at a gig in association with DF Concerts, the promoters behind T in the Park and King Tut's Wah Wah Hut. In 2016, Gordon won an International Song Competition for his composition "Vodka Lemon Lime" which is now available to purchase on all online retailers. He is in demand across the UK, performing at weddings, corporate and private events, restaurants, bars, music festivals and music venues.

Having recently gained certificates of completion in Estill Vocal Training levels 1 and 2, Gordon now has an advanced knowledge of the biological structures of the larynx, and how best to manipulate these in order to create a versatility and control of sound, whilst always maintaining safe and healthy vocal practice. This puts him in a very advantageous position to teach singers with a range of vocal ability and in a huge variety of styles and genres.

He has experience teaching very young children, having taught languages to children from 4 months to 7 years at Le Beaumont Language School in Hong Kong, and he has very successfully led children through graded music exams and school performances/competitions as well as auditions for further study. He knows how to get the best results from young children as well as teenagers and adults.
