Hello!

My name's Dan and I'm a young, friendly, music teacher based in East London. Here’s a quick summary of my approach:


• I teach you the music that you WANT to play! I strongly believe this is the best path to success.
• I give you a strong technical grounding in the fundamentals of your instrument.
• You learn how to play by reading and by ear.
• We work together towards helping you make music in whatever contexts you would like to – whether for pleasure or playing in any kind of band or ensemble.
• If desired, composition and improvisation are encouraged!

I can teach ABRSM/Trinity/other grades, or we can take a more relaxed approach. There are many wonderful ways to learn music, so I like to try and offer as many as I can!

I have over 5 years teaching experience and regularly teach pupils of any age, ability and background. As well as my own studio of private students, I teach at local schools with Newham and Tower Hamlets Music Services and I undergo regular teacher and safeguarding training with both of these organisations, which helps me constantly update my approach. I also have a full enhanced DBS to view if desired.

I am also a busy performing musician. I graduated from Guildhall in 2019, and recent performance highlights include a session at Abbey Road, playing lead alto with Capital Orchestra at Cadogan Hall and performing to sold-out crowds at Pizza Express Dean Street.

Am able to teach out of my home studio in Wapping or, location dependent and for a slightly higher cost, to travel to you. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.

**COVID UPDATE**

• Any teaching in person will now only be done with appropriate discussion and precautions taken by both parties. Please ask about this!
• I offer high quality online lessons at a reduced price. These really are an excellent substitution for in person learning if you are at all worried about risk.
