Andy - Heatons - Music Technology

Methodology

I have researched many approaches to learning, each of my students benefit from a personal learning program that emphasises their strengths and provides support where it is needed. I always try to use the students preferred music as a learning aid.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I'm able to teach all standard electric/acoustic guitar styles and bass, from beginner to advanced levels. I specialise in acoustic folk and advanced finger-picking techniques. I also offer tuition for beginner/intermediate Banjo, Weissenborn Slide Guitar and 12-string guitar.

Most of my students ask to learn modern rock/pop. A couple are learning classical techniques, Irish folk or specific folk finger-picking techniques.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a music and sound engineering degree from Rose Bruford Performing Arts College. This wide-ranging degree has given me experience in all areas of music composition, performance and production.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £20 p/h, or £12 per half hour for lessons at my home. I am happy to teach up to two students at a time for £25 p/h or £16 per half hour - this is a price reduction per student.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from home in Heaton Moor and the majority of my students come from Heaton Chapel, Stockport, Cheadle Hulme, Bramhall, Wilmslow, Didsbury and other Manchester areas.

Please see my website for photographs of my music room.

- When are you available?

My main teaching days are currently Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday and Sunday - daytimes and evenings. Although I am able to be flexible with my schedule to meet your requirements. Please contact me for further discussion.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages from year 6 upwards, and any ability level beginner to advanced. For those looking to specialise, I can help most with acoustic folk music, open tunings and fingerpicking styles.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Some of my students have followed their musical interests as part of their education, choosing to do Music GCSE's, Music/Music Technology A-levels and related University degrees. This is a process I have been happy to support with my knowledge and expertise, often putting down the guitars to concentrate on exam preparation or coursework material. I recently completed the first section of a Music PGCE, becoming responsible for the music education of over 250 high school and college students along the way. This provided a unique opportunity to tailor my teaching to compliment the school education process, and I am happy to take on students for short 'booster' periods, before their exams, or college/university interviews etc.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching privately for six years. I have experience teaching KS3, GCSE and A-Level music and music technology to full size school classes

Additionally, I have experience working as a sound engineer for studios around Manchester and London. I have composed for rock and experimental groups and performed as a session guitarist for several hiphop and pop artists, along with some successful function bands.

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

Through school teaching, I have an up-to-date CRB certificate available for any prospective student to see.
