As a musician, I am an Organist, a Pianist, and a Guitarist. I'm currently giving Piano lessons to a friend of mine who is paying 30 pounds per hour. I also taught a neighbour how to play the Guitar for free in exchange that she did something that would benefit me as well.
As I teach these people, I don't just want them to play an instrument. I want to bring them the beauty of being able to face music at its heart, inspire them and motivate them to acquire the skill to create music from an instrument. From experience, I believe it is the sense of reaching closer to the end goal that drives a musician to learn a new piece each time. As a music teacher, I'll ensure that I scaffold my pupil(s) properly by knowing them personally, and help them achieve whatever they want to achieve from learning the Piano.
Though I am studying Chemical Engineering at The University of Aberdeen, I love doing anything that involves music. I started playing the Piano when I was 6 years old, and have kept it up even now at 19. I also learnt how to play the Guitar from age 9 onwards, and the Organ from 14 onwards.
On two of the instruments I play, the Piano and the Organ, I took ABRSM examinations. I got up to passing Grade 6 with a Merit on the Piano, went straight into Grade 6 with the Organ and passed with Distinction, skipped Grade 7 afterward to do Grade 8 on the Organ, and passed with Distinction. I now am currently Junior Organ Scholar for The University of Aberdeen's King's College chapel, playing for services and other events where the congregation needs music (i.e. concerts). I even got in touch to play for lord Glenarthur in Banchory on Good Friday, as he is recovering from an ankle surgery and so unable to play.
When I travel from the halls of residence, I would need to pay 2:50 pounds to get to the Aberdeen town. I would then need to travel another similar distance if a venue is even further away from the town centre, which would mean having to pay roughly another 2:50 to travel, depending on the location.
If i am able to walk to the venue, I won't include the travel cost in my rate. Likewise, I'll charge half of the cost of travel if I find that I don't need to take another form of transportation to arrive at the destination.
