Methodology

I am an enthusiastic and experienced music teacher based in North-East London. I offer lessons for beginners to advanced players of all ages. Lessons are tailored to your individual needs and are taught from my home music studio or at your home.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I specialise in teaching the Clarinet at all ages and levels, however I am also experienced in teaching the Piano, Saxophone, Flute and Music Theory at all levels as well.

- How much do you charge?

£15 per 30mins.
I usually negotiate a small fee to contribute towards my travel expenses when the lesson is delivered at the students home.

- Where do you teach?

I prefer to teach from my home music studio in Hackney whenever possible. However, I am happy to travel anywhere in the London area, however this will incur an extra cost to cover my travel expenses.

- When are you available?

I am generally quite flexible and can teach anytime depending on my performing schedule. I am also happy to continue teaching throughout the school holidays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I am experienced in teaching students of all levels, from beginners to advanced (diploma standard). I equally enjoy working with people of all ages - you're never too young or too old to start playing music!

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I have successfully prepared many pupils for graded music exams, both ABRSM and Trinity Guildhall. Although exams are not the 'be all and end all', I feel that they serve an important role in learning to play a musical instrument due to the key skills that they draw upon.
I am experienced in delivering the exam aural training syllabus across all of the grades and am also capable of providing piano accompaniment to my students, which they find extremely useful.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching privately in London since 2006. Currently I am a visiting woodwind teacher at Brampton Manor Academy in Newham and Central Foundation Girls' School in Tower Hamlets. I also work for numerous London music services, teaching the clarinet, saxophone and flute to around 250 children every week. In the past I have delivered music workshops to schools across South East London and have assisted in the Junior Department at Trinity College of Music.

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

Yes, I have an enhanced DBS certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I have had the pleasure of training under many teachers including: Andrew Webster · Fiona Cross · Hale Hambleton ·Jennifer McLaren · Joan Enric-Lluna · Julian Farrell
· Lorenzo Iosco · Laurent Ben Slimane · Nicholas Carpenter

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

ISM (Incorporated Society Of Musicians)
