Adam - Burnage - Piano

Methodology

Hello. My name is Adam and I have been an avid music lover my entire life. I am am passionate music teacher with 10 years experience. I hope to answer any questions you have below but please do not hesitate to get in touch should you have any.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I am a woodwind and piano specialist. I teach flute, clarinet, sax, and piano (both classical and jazz styles), bassoon, composition, and chamber music. I can tailor my lessons to suit your needs. I can teach more generalist subjects such as music theory and musicianship/aural. I can also teach pop piano either casually or to the Rock School syllabus.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I studied the clarinet and piano at school working towards ABRSM exams, then went on to study the bassoon at the Royal Northern College of Music. While I was there I also studied composition and music pedagogy, I went on to complete my Masters degree in 2010. I have worked as a freelance musician across the north of England and in 2013 I became a qualified teacher having completed my PGCE at Edge Hill University. I am a Licentiate of the Royal Schools of Music in Bassoon

- How much do you charge?

My hourly rate is £30. I can offer 30 minute sessions for £17 and 45 minute sessions for £24. Chamber music is £40 per hour and is a minimum 2 hour session this will cover room hire as part of the fee. The first session is half price and is a great opportunity for us to discuss your needs and how the lessons will progress.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at my home in Chorlton. I will consider local travel but there will be an additional charge for this based on your location, this is to cover costs and travel time. Please ask for a quote if you require me to travel to you.

- When are you available?

I have slots available most evenings and weekends. I will also teach during school holidays as required. I will not tie you into a contract and charge lesson by lesson.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

It is never too late to start learning an instrument and I currently have students ranging from 9 to 65. Due to the nature of embrasure development any student under the age of 7 will need to initially learn the recorder before moving onto other woodwind instruments. I will take you through the entire exam syllabus from beginner to diploma or am happy to accept students who are part way through their musical development. Feel free to get in touch should you wish to discuss this further.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I always recommend the ABRSM syllabus for classic instruments and Trinity/Guildhall for students wishing to study jazz. Exams aren't for everyone but do help you develop quicker and give you a benchmark as to your progression. We can work on a casual style of lesson for students wanting to work in a pop style at the piano.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Whatever your ambition, get in touch and book a consultation lesson for half price. We can discuss your needs and it will give you the chance to see if I'm the right teacher for you. I want your sessions to be fun and engaging and will work hard to help you achieve. Learning an instrument is a difficult but ultimately rewarding experience and with dedication and passion anyone can achieve.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching privately for 10 years. In addition I have taught GCSE and A-Level music in secondary schools for 5 years. I have performed in bands, chamber ensembles and orchestras across the north of England and have promoted and developed live music events. I have conducted many choirs and have arranged and composed music for various groups. With the right dedication anyone can experience the true pleasure of playing music and my experience will allow me to tailor the lessons to your needs. I use the piano in all my lessons to help develop ensemble skills and to add fun to the session. This helps in preparation for exams, in which I will generally accompany you.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have a DBS available to view on request.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a Licentiate of the Royal Schools of Music.

G
Graham

Having returned to playing the clarinet after a period of 30 years i have found the initial re-learning period difficult. Adam has helped me through this time with much understanding. His approach has been geared to my immediate needs but has always had a proper regard for disciplined playing.

A
Alannah

I like how Adam doesn't only focus on the negatives, that he mentions the positives as it's encouraging and my previous 2 teachers didn't do that. I also like that Adam gives me specific things to work on and specific scales as it helps me focus my practice. Best clarinet teacher I've ever had and the only one who inspired me to work really hard!

O
Olivia

Olivia likes the use of the piano in the lesson. She enjoys the variation which includes theory and sight reading. Olivia really enjoys the lesson and Adam seems ro have found the right balance between rapid progress and hard slog.

M
Maisie

Maisie commenced lessons on the recorder and found them very enjoyable and fun. She has now started lessons on the clarinet and is progressing well due to Adam's teaching style. His enthusiasm, commitment and passion for music, is second to none. Maisie has found his lessons interesting, imaginative, enthusiastic, varied and fun. She is progressing well and looks forward to her weekly lesson. Adam's style of teaching has given Maisie increased self-confidence and belief.

S
Simon

The Lessons I have undertaken have enhanced my playing more than I expected, presenting me with a greater understanding and appreciation of many musical styles, periods and genres. The friendly, professional tuition I have received has encouraged me to achieve my personal goals and increased my interest in the saxophone. All the lessons have a safe and friendly environment, helping build my confidence and caking learning more enjoyable.
