Hello, and welcome to my tutor page.
If you're a musician looking for teaching at a favourable rate, look no further. I'm conservatoire educated, so I'm getting tips from the best... and I can pass them straight on to you.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach all brass instruments excluding French Horn, which is quite different to most brass instruments. If you need a horn teacher I can easily put you in touch with one.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I am a Licentiate of the Royal Schools of Music, and I'm currently working towards a degree, and will be taking a Licentiate of the Royal Academy of Music course in the coming years.
- How much do you charge?
My usual rate is £25 per hour-long session or £15 per half-hour session, which is a very favourable going rate at the moment.
- Where do you teach?
I am willing to teach anywhere within the Greater London area, and am very flexible with arrangements, I can either travel to pupils' homes or have pupils come to me.
- When are you available?
As a conservatoire student, my schedule is very volatile, so I will need to be flexible. On the flip side, I can allow plenty of flexibility for pupils as well. The best times to ask for are at the weekends as I am usually free to teach then. I will always ensure that a pupil gets a lesson when needed.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach all ages and abilities.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I am most familiar with the Trinity Guildhall and ABRSM Graded exams structure, however, I am perfectly at ease preparing for any qualification a student requires. Having done two diplomas myself I am used to a wide range of marking criteria.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
If between lessons a student needs help with anything music related I will be happy to answer any burning questions through any medium they see fit.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I perform regularly in public, in many settings from chamber music to orchestral and solo, and I have so far performed in two BBC Proms.
I have been involved in workshops in primary schools, providing an "outreach" session for children who want to have a go at music for the first time. I also spent some time working in a specialist music shop, wherein a large part of the job was ensuring the customer found the best solution to ensure future progress.
I also have one student currently, who, with my support, recently attained Grade 5 trombone and Grade 8 tuba, both with distinction.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Having not been involved as a staff member in a educational institution, I do not have a DBS. However, if parents are concerned about this, I am perfectly comfortable for a parent or guardian to sit in and observe a lesson if they so wish.
- Where and with whom did you train?
I am a student of the Royal Academy of Music, and I take lessons from several principal players from orchestras in the UK and Overseas.
• Licentiate of the Royal Schools of Music (with Distinction)
Ashley has a natural gift for communicating points of technique and musicianship to the student in a way that they can always understand and apply to their playing. He can identify exactly what the student needs to improve, adapting skilfully to the needs of the student. Ashley is an empathetic teacher with the ability to improve the playing of students of any ability. As a teacher of 30 years experience I would recommend Ashley most highly as a teacher for anyone who wants to develop their potential.
