Claire - Partick West - Music Theory

Methodology

Hello! I have over 18 years experience tutoring music working with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland & privately. I am enthusiastic and determined & I get great enjoyment from pupils progressing. Lessons are tailored to individual needs.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Violin, Scottish Fiddle and Music Theory.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a Bachelor of Arts (Scottish Music) degree form the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (formerly Royal Scottish Academy of Music & Drama)

- How much do you charge?

Half hour lessons are recommended for children: £14. 45 mins lessons recommended for adults or children preparing for exams are £21. I can travel to most of the West side of Glasgow and surrounding areas, however, I may have to consider travel time. Lessons are usually taught in my music room at my own home in G14.

- Where do you teach?

I teach in my "music room" at home or it may be possible to visit you.

- When are you available?

I am available weekdays and evenings - open to discussion.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

5 - 105! All ages and demographics welcome!

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

ABRSM exams - 1-8; SQA exams; RCS exams, Trinity Guild Hall exams, competitions & auditions.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Practice! =D

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught privately and as an instrumental music instructor for the MUSICWORKS programme ran by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland for over 15 years.
Privately, lessons are based round the needs and wants for each individual. I teach pupils to read music or they can learn by ear, we can work towards ABRSM exams - many of my pupils achieve merit and distinction grades. I prepare pupils for SQA exam performance, auditions & competitions. I tutor ABRSM grade 5 theory where my pupils have obtained distinction passes. I focus on improving technique and repertoire.

Please find below, a list of my recent performances:

Battle of the Folk Bands finalist 2018 SKNT GOAT – May 2018
Guest Artist as part of “Martainn Skene Highland Dance Band” at Skye Accordion & Fiddle Festival – May 2018
BBC Broadcasting artist: Radio Scotland “Take the Floor” session as part of “Nicky McMichan & Friends Iain Holmes Tribute” - Nov 2017
BBC Broadcasting artist Radio Scotland “Take the Floor” session as part of “Martainn Skene Highland Dance Band” - Sept 2017
Shetland Accordion & Fiddle Festival, solo Guest Artist – Sept 2017
Aida Vita Cruise Liner Guest Musician – April & Sept 2017
Niel Gow Fiddle Awards Finalist 2017 – March 2017

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

PVR - Fully disclosed for adults & children.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Incorporated Society of Musicians.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have a wide demographic of students - both in Scottish fiddle and violin. I have successfully coached pupils to gain entry to the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Junior school. Many of my students gain distinction in their ABRSM violin exams and have won / gained placements at Scottish music compeitions. (eg The Trade House of Glasgow Schools Robert Burns music competition, Perth music festival)
Grade 5 music theory pupils gain upwards of 90% in their exam.
