Avelia - Wing - Trumpet

Methodology

Hello! I am a professional trumpet player with many years' teaching experience and enjoy helping students of all ages to learn from scratch &/or improve.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach all brass instruments - trumpet is my specialism.

I teach music theory up to Grade 5 ... and beyond if desired!

I also teach piano; and am occasionally asked to give extra tuition in aural tests to students learning other instruments to help them in that aspect of a forthcoming exam.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I hold a B.Mus (London), LRAM (Teacher) and ARCM (Performer)

- How much do you charge?

I charge £35 per hour and pro rata. The majority of my students have half-hour lessons (@ £17.50 per lesson)

- Where do you teach?

I teach from my home studio, which is on the Buckinghamshire/ Bedfordshire border. The nearest town is Leighton Buzzard, but I am also not far from Aylesbury, Milton Keynes etc.

- When are you available?

In general, the parents of my school-age students prefer to have a set time and day per week for lessons, whereas my adult students may prefer to arrange times and days to suit on a more ad-hoc basis to accommodate work commitments. I am happy to teach most days and times, to suit students - please contact me to check availability.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages (currently 6-85!), and all levels from beginner to diploma and beyond.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I generally work with the ABRSM exams (Grades 1-8). Some students like to work towards the ABRSM Jazz exams, either as well or instead of the regular exams.
If students have a preference for the Trinity Guildhall exams, I am very happy to oblige.
At diploma level, it depends entirely on the student's requirements, which we discuss together in-depth.
Not all students wish to take exams, in which case I work with them to improve their playing constantly but without actual exam pressure. Should the need subsequently arise, I would write a letter of endorsement to confirm the student's playing level.
I teach many students to pass Grade 5 theory, and a few choose to go on to the higher grades.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I love working with students who are keen and interested to learn, and are therefore enthusiastic and try hard. I never mind if a student is struggling with some particular facet of playing as long as they are working to their own best ability - my job is to help them overcome problems, and thereby reach higher levels of playing.

Music is all about enjoyment and communication. In order to achieve this, regular practice is necessary to master the technical aspects of playing. As control over the instrument increases, so does the ability to make music.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

As a performer I have worked in most genres, from classical to jazz, West End shows, soca, Latin, African & funk bands, both live and recordings.

As a teacher, I work in several Junior and Secondary schools, as well as maintaining a private practice. I teach many beginners, both children and adults, as well as working with more advanced players (Grade 8/diploma and beyond).

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

Yes. I hold a current DBS certificate - a requirement for my school teaching.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London. I have since had occasional lessons with many trumpet "names" such as John Wallace, Bobby Shew, Arturo Sandoval.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a member of the Musicians' Union and the International Trumpet Guild.
