Andrew - Leighton Buzzard - Electric guitar

Methodology

I feel that the best musicians are diverse and flexible musicians, and this is the ethos by which I teach.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach 'cello, clarinet and sax (both classical and jazz) and classical singing from beginner to advanced and guitar (rock and pop) up to intermediate.

Although I mainly teach classical, I am more than happy to teach jazz, and various types of folk music (Klezmer is a particular specialism of mine!). I can include musicianship and theory lessons as part of my instrumental teaching, or teach them separately. For music tech and composition, I am able to teach up to and includng A2, and am happy to help more advanced students on individual projects and pieces! I also offer lessons on Sibelius music notation software.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

BMus(hons) from the Birmingham Conservatoire, specialising in composition. ABRSM Grade 8 on 'cello and clarinet. A-levels in Music and Music Technology.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £25 per hour (and £20 for 45mins, and £15 per half hour). Should I need to travel to you, I may charge extra for transport. I'm happy to discuss discounts for group lessons.

- Where do you teach?

I'm happy to teach in my own home (Leighton Buzzard), or travel to pupils if necessary, and if it can fit into my schedule.

I also travel to Birmingham at least once per week, and would be happy to accommodate pupils while I am there.

- When are you available?

My schedule is flexible and changeable. Email me and I'm sure we can arrange a time that is mutually convenient!

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages, and all abilities. Many of my pupils are young beginners, some coming (or returning) to music later in life than others!

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I am happy to teach students in preparation for ABRSM/Trinity music exams, for GCSE/A-Level exams/recitals, or just for fun.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have a wide range of experience as a performer. I have played in orchestras, chamber music groups, jazz bands of various types, an indie band, a Klezmer trio, period performance groups and cutting edge contemporary music ensembles. As a singer, I am a Lay Clerk at Birmingham Cathedral choir, a choral scholar at St. Martin-in-the-Fields London, and perform regularly with ensembles such as Ex Cathedra and the Armonico Consort. I have previously sung with the Birmingham Conservatoire Chamber Choir and the CBSO chorus, amongst others.

I've been teaching privately in the Birmingham area for over over years. I've also lead/help out at workshops, in schools and at festivals, with ensembles as varied as Steel Pan bands and folk groups. In the 2011-12 academic year I was appointed as a mentor at the Birmingham Conservatoire Junior Department. I currently teach creative music technology at Birmingham prep schools, with the company M-Tech.

I have recently moved to Leighton Buzzard, and am looking to build up my teaching schedule in the area.

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

I do. Several in fact!

- Where and with whom did you train?

I've studied clarinet with Chris Allen (of ABRSM study book fame!), and 'cello with Lionel Handy. I currently study baroque 'cello with Imogen Seth-Smith, and singing with Gordon Sandison. In my time at the Birmingham Conservatoire and CBSO Chorus, I've had the privilege to work under the likes of Simon Rattle, Mark Elder, Simon Halsey and Jeffrey Skidmore.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Musicians' Union.
