Alan - Malton - Piano

Methodology

I am an experienced, friendly teacher and can travel to your home to provide piano, keyboard or theory lessons. My tuition is tailored to meet the needs of individuals. I teach all ages (6 to 60+) and abilities (beginners to intermediate).

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Piano, electronic keyboard music theory and composition. I can teach any combination of subjects depending on your needs. I teach young primary school beginners, as well as teenagers wanting extra tuition for GCSE and 'A' level examinations.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

BA (Hons)
BA (Hons) (Open)
Dip. Mus
Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Music and English)
Diploma in Media Composition from ThinkSpace (affiliated to the Film Music Institute of Los Angeles)

- How much do you charge?

£18 per 30 min lesson
£30 per 60 min lesson

- Where do you teach?

For your convenience, I travel to students' homes to teach. I tutor across Ryedale in North Yorkshire, including Malton and Pickering.

- When are you available?

By arrangement. After school and early evenings are fine. I also teach earlier in the day to adult learners and homeschoolers if this is a more suitable time. The bulk of my teaching is at the weekend and the first half of the week. I can also teach during school holidays if required. I provide short-term 'booster' lessons if a longer commitment is not required.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

From ages 4/5 and up subject to a consultation. I teach complete beginners up to intermediate students, including GCSE and 'A' level support.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

ABRSM piano and theory qualifications. I also support GCSE and 'A' Level students.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Through my website, I provide extra support and resources between lessons. Parents and students have a private login section to access these resources.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Whatever your reason for wanting to make music, I believe it should be fun, creative and enjoyable. Our lives are enhanced and enriched by learning to play an instrument and it also brings joy to those around us.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

As well as teaching piano/keyboard, I have been a secondary school music teacher in North Yorkshire for over 25 years. I have taught GCSE and 'A' Level Music and have also been a Head of Music, supporting and developing the careers of newly qualified teachers. I have led many ensembles and choirs and have been Musical Director for countless school productions. I am also a film and media composer and have scored the soundtracks to three feature-length films, several short films and an animated short (you can find me on the IMDb website). The mp3 files attached to my profile have been composed and recorded by me for various film and media commissions.

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

As an 'Incorporated Society of Musicians' (ISM) Registered Private Music Teacher, I hold a DBS/CRB Enhanced Certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

University of Northumbria - BA (Hons).
St Mary's College, Newcastle - PGCE.
Open University - BA (Hons), Dip.Mus.
ThinkSpaceOnline - media composition (tutors included film/TV composer Guy Michelmore and 'Doctor Who' composer Peter Howell from The BBC Radiophonic Workshop).

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I currently teach piano and keyboard to young beginners and adults, as well as theory and composition to students wanting booster lessons in preparation for GCSE examinations.
