Notes:

I have been teaching in different capacities for more than 12 years. I have experience teaching on a one-to-one and two-to-one basis (both as a peripatetic tutor in a number of schools as well as private tuition) and have been a tutor on various jazz courses including: Trinity Summer School (http://www.trinitysummerschool.co.uk/), Cambridge Jazz Co-Op (www.cambridgejazzcoop.org.uk) and Dordogne International Summer School (http://www.jazzschool-dordogne.co.uk), where I have worked as a piano tutor and ensemble project leader.

I have a flexible and dynamic approach to teaching and will tailor each lesson to the student's individual needs and aims, with the emphasis being on enjoyment, creativity and measures of progress. I have multiple keyboard instruments available for teaching (see below), which provide great flexibility for teaching different styles and allow the student and I to play together if appropriate.

For piano / keyboard teaching some example topics that we could cover in lessons include:

- Instrumental technique / body awareness
- Tone Production
- Improvisation
- Music theory (including harmony / scale awareness)
- Sight reading
- Rhythm exercises
- Listening to / transcribing from recordings
- Aural skills
- Transition from classical to other styles
- Playing with other musicians

I can also teach keyboard and synthesiser programming / sound design, and my home studio features the following resources:

- Kemble Quantum upright piano
- Fender Rhodes Mk 1 73 + various pedals / amps
- Wurlitzer 200A
- Hammond A100 organ + Leslie 145 / 122
- Nord C1 organ + leslie 2101
- Nord Stage EX
- Roland RD-300SX
- Yamaha Motif ES
- Macbook Pro / Apple Logic 9 / Mainstage 3 / Various plugins and soft synths

I am also an active musician / performer (see biography above for more info). If you want to hear me or see what I'm up to please visit http://www.stevepringle.co.uk
