When teaching Music Theory, Musical Analysis, or Music History we start by assessing the student's initial knowledge and understanding, clarifying learning objectives and then laying out a teaching plan which details all of the topics areas that will be covered, assessment sessions planned and how much time will be devoted to each area (including revision and contingency days).
When teaching singing my teaching methodology is very wholistic, and I tailor my teaching to each students' needs and strengths. They are given clear steps which they are encouraged to repeat throughout the process. These steps help them to hone the OLD, but also develop NEW skills effectively and reliably. With my help, they learn to develop their own ability to guide themselves. What I teach applies to those young and old; to those with little, to those with lots of experience; to those lacking in confidence, to those who are full of confidence.
At the relatively young age of 24, I have 16 years of professional singing experience. At the age of 8 I won a place as a Chorister at Westminster Abbey Choir School. There, I sang in daily services of worship, special services and concerts of national importance; on tours around the world; in televised services and in CD recordings. Subsequently, I won a Music Scholarship to The King's School Canterbury and became a Lay Clerk for the choir of Canterbury Cathedral. What followed was a Gap Year in which I was given the role of Choral Scholar with two Choirs in London; Sloane Square Choral Society and All Saint's Fulham Parish Choir. During this time, I also taught piano privately to beginners. The following year I accepted my deferred place to read Music at the University of Bristol. The degree was very broad, involving studying music history (from 13th Century to the present day), music theory (harmony, counterpoint and analysis), music composition (pastiche and avante-guarde forms and techniques), vocal performance (for every recital that I have performed for my course, I was awarded a 1st) and studio techniques (recording, production and mixing). Despite living a thoroughly busy double-life heavily involved with the university's theatre societies - acting, writing and directing music for plays and writing and directing a play that I took to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in my final year - I graduated from the University of Bristol with 2:1 Honours in July 2017.
I have recently returned to my bases in both Bristol and London, after a thoroughly enjoyable and fascinating period living in Morocco for 8 months. Since returning, I have been settling back into living in the UK, writing, teaching, singing and attending acting workshops a few evenings a week.
