Biography

Hi and thanks for checking out my profile!

I am a patient and enthusiastic music educator and guitar/ukulele tutor with 17 years of playing experience, and 10 years of teaching experience. I pride myself on the friendly and supportive atmosphere created in my lessons, as well as my uniquely tailored approach to my students' musical education.

I have performed in a wide variety of genres: from rock and blues to classical guitar (gaining a Grade 8 Distinction aged 17), from jazz and musical theatre to modern experimental music. I bring this wealth of musical experience into my lessons.

I am a regular performer, and personal highlights include regular performances at well-renowned music venue The Talking Heads during my Undergraduate Degree in Southampton, and performing at the 2015 Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. I also perform regularly at my church, helping to lead worship and often directing the band/arranging music for the service.

I studied and gained a Music BA (Hons) from the University of Southampton, providing me with a wide knowledge-base, and equipping me with the necessary skills for performing and teaching. I utilise these expertise in my lessons to give my students a well-rounded musical education. I am also a highly trained and experienced composer/arranger with a strong grasp of music theory gained through rigorous study at university.

I am an experienced tutor through delivering 10 years of private lessons to a wide variety of ages and abilities of students, most of whom developed a love of their subject which persists to this day.

I studied and gained a PGDE from Nottingham Trent University after training to teach music, where I gained valuable experience of teaching more broadly, as well as teaching specifically music. I taught both GCSE and A-level students, as well as key stage 3.

My current day-job is working for Warwickshire Music, teaching music and guitar/ukulele to primary and secondary aged students. I have an advanced DBS certificate, which is necessary for me to work in this role. My teaching experience is broad having taught all ages, which makes it easy for me to adapt my lessons to individual need and ability.

I have experience in preparing students for Rockschool and Trinity guitar exams, and would encourage my students to consider studying for exams. However this will be the students' decision, and there is plenty to learn without studying for exams; I never force my students down a particular route, but view my role as facilitating the route the student chooses to take.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and I hope to hear from you soon.
