Beginners to Advanced
I am Ed, a professional musician and music tutor based in North London N14 (Southgate).
I've been teaching in music schools and privately for several years, helping students to gain the best results with bespoke lessons for all ages and levels - from beginner to advanced.
I offer individual lessons of:
- Classical/Electric guitar lessons (beginner);
- Bass guitar lessons (all levels);
- Music theory/harmony lessons (all levels);
- Music ensemble classes (any music genre, with charts prepared and analysed with the students);
- Double Bass lessons (classical and jazz: beginner/intermediate);
- Music Production - Logic Pro X, Sibelius (all levels);
- Piano (beginner).
My study plan includes all you need to improve your skills, either if you are starting from no knowledge of music, or if you are an experienced player looking forward to pass grades, exams, auditions, etc.
In 1-2-1 bass guitar lessons we'll cover the basic technique of the instrument (and later on advanced techniques as slap and pop, playing with a pick, palm muting, etc.), aural/ear training, solfeggio, studying and playing lots of songs (covering different music styles like jazz, pop, rock, funk, reggae, fusion, soul, blues, R&B, gospel), reading music sheets (treble and bass clef), study of walking bass lines and famous bass riffs, recording and analysing your bass lines, music theory/harmony, scales and arpeggios, composition of melodies, etc.
First things to work on for a bass player are timing (ability to "keep time" accurately) and tone (how you produce sound and how it can change in relation to slight position changes of your hands and fingers).
I am also specialised in teaching guitar (classical and electric) and piano to children and adult beginners and I have developed a friendly and easy-going approach with the goal to play easy melodies/songs from the first lesson.
My past education includes a BMus (Hons) in Jazz and a Bass Diploma both with honours, ABRSM Music Theory/Harmony Grade 8 and I am DBS checked.
Lessons are held at my home studio (Southgate N14), at your premises or online (SKYPE, ZOOM, etc.).
