« I've been having regular ukulele lessons with Cian since September 2014. I started as a complete beginner not able to play at all. Now in February 2015 I'm able to play a variety of chords, different strumming patterns and am starting to learn music theory. Cian's teaching allows me to progress at my own speed and increase's my confidence with the ukulele. I would happily recommend Cian as a music teacher. »

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

As a performer I have twenty years experience of playing bass in a wide range of situations including live, studio, and touring. I have performed on recordings for the BBC and Channel 4 (UK), and have performed live with musicians such as Bernie Shaw (Uriah Heap) and Rick Astley.

As a teacher I have over ten years experience teaching guitar, bass, ukulele, and banjo. I have thought students of all ages and abilities including preparing students for graded exams. I was also an Assessor for one of the largest guitar schools in Europe. This involved both auditioning prospective students and marking and advising students in Live Performance Workshops.

Yes

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Current students include young beginners, teens who want to be in a band, aspiring songwriters, seasoned veterans who are stuck in a rut, a school headmaster, and a retiree who has always wanted to play banjolele!

I've been having regular ukulele lessons with Cian since September 2014.
I started as a complete beginner not able to play at all. Now in February 2015 I'm able to play a variety of chords, different strumming patterns and am starting to learn music theory. Cian's teaching allows me to progress at my own speed and increase's my confidence with the ukulele.
I would happily recommend Cian as a music teacher.

I first came to Cian approximately 4 months ago with very little knowledge
in bass playing. Since then I have made huge strides in both playing
technique and musical knowledge. My initial vision was to work my way
through rock school grades, and whilst I am still doing that, Cian has
vastly broadened my outlook. Bass playing has become a huge amount of fun as a result, and I highly recommend Cian to anyone who wants to improve their bass playing.
