Charlie - Bethnal Green - Guitar

Methodology

Hi! I am a multi-instrumentalist, ideal for people wanting to have fun and expand their musical ability and knowledge, while developing sound technique. I teach out of my own studio just 1 minute walk from homerton station. I can also travel to you!

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I mainly teach trumpet/flugelhorn and piano, but also teach guitar, bass guitar and music theory . I teach all styles and offer a variety of different lessons and approaches depending on your needs and circumstances. I can prepare and enter students for examinations, right through to help with song-writing and improvisation. I incorporate both teaching by ear and teaching from written music, taking into account student wishes.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Level 4 Diploma in Instrumental Teaching ATCL with Distinction.
Ethnomusicology BMus(Hons) - SOAS.
Grade 8 trumpet with distinction

- How much do you charge?

£30 per hour.

£15 half hour.
£40 - 90 minutes.

Concessions available dependant on income - contact me to discuss.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from my own professional music studio. It is 1 minute walk from Homerton overground station. It is easily accesible from Highbury and islington, Hackney Stratford and south east london It is spacious with a vintage upright piano and full professional recording facilities if required. I can also travel to student's houses in the following areas:

Lambeth, Southwark, Wandsworth, Lewisham, Tower Hamlets, Islington, Hackney, City, Camden, Westminster, Kensington/Chelsea, Hammersmith/Fulham, Harringay, South East london.

- When are you available?

I have a flexible schedule with both evenings and daytimes available. Get in touch to arrange a time that suits.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages from beginners right up to advanced students.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I can prepare students for ABRSM and/or Trinity Guildhall examinations as they wish. Grades 1-8.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Via Skype.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Learning any instrument can really empower you; learning the trumpet is learning to play the King of the orchestra! Learning an instrument enables you to express yourself in ways that previously was not possible; is very good for your brain; helps you connect with the people you are playing with; can provide you with an exciting career - the benefits are endless! Oh, and did I forget to mention, you will have a lot of fun !

I wish you the best of luck and good fortune in your musical pursuit.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have 6 years private tuition experience in London. I teach from absolute beginners right through to advanced students. I also have experience teaching trumpet, guitar, bass and piano in schools in South Africa, both group teaching and one-to-one. I teach all ages.

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

Currently Processing.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I have been fortunate to study with many great teachers. I studied trumpet under Brian Rance and Paul Lunga, Zimbabwe's "King of Jazz Horns". At SOAS I studied Cuban Bata under Crispin Robinson.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

At the moment I have trumpet, piano, guitar and music theory pupils.
Here are a couple of examples from my tutor base:
One of my students has been learning flugelhorn with me as a complete beginner since Jan 2011. From not being able to making a sound he now knows all the notes on the instrument and is beginning to play the tunes he has been wanting to learn. In lessons we split the time between working on technique, learning notes and getting a beautiful tone on the instrument, reading music and playing melodies and songs that the pupil likes to learn - we sometimes play together as a duet, which he particularly enjoys.
I have been working with a piano student since November 2010 - she had played before as a child up to grade 5 standard and started again with me. We split the time between learning pieces, working on and expanding her musical knowledge, exploring a range of styles and improvisation and composition.
I also have students in South Africa. I conducted teacher training for music teachers in the schools I was teaching and also taught 20+ children to play trumpet, guitar, bass and keyboards.With pupils having not previously played a note on trumpet, within 9 weeks I had the beginnings of a brass band playing 'When the Saints', 'Nkosi Sikeleli' Afrika' and other South African tunes in 3 or 4 part harmony!

Do not be put off by nerves or doubt; you will not find a more patient or accomplished teacher and being able to make music is its own rich reward.

Charlie Shuttler is both a superb player and an excellent teacher. He combines
expert knowledge with useful advice and encouragement resulting in lessons that
are both enjoyable and productive. Charlie's personable style helped me feel at ease
even though I could barely play any sounds at first.

R
Rich

Because of his enthusiastic and
professional approach, I improved my technique and ability, which gave me the
confidence to join a brass band and the inspiration to keep developing my skills.
Without hesitation I recommend Charlie to anyone who wants to learn and/or develop
their playing.
