Claire - Sidcup - Music

Methodology

I love catering for all ages from aged 5 right through to adult. I am enjoy teaching early years students using a Kodaly based music programme.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Piano (practical and theory).
GCSE Music (Performing, composing and listening).
Popular musical styles. I am also available for accompanying other instruments in exams and other performances.

PGCE (East London University 2005)

- How much do you charge?

£32 per hour for individual lessons (most students begin with half hour lessons once a week) - charged 4-weekly.

Free trial lessons are offered - these are short lessons at the piano followed by a chat between teacher, student, and/or parent - it gives us an opportunity to meet and discuss all matters relating to lessons and helps a student to make an informed decision about booking lessons. This process usually takes around 30 minutes.

I teach in a purpose built music room on my premises (separate from my house) Areas likely to travel to me are: Sidcup, Eltham, Blackfen, Bexley, Bexleyheath, Dartford, Chislehurst, Mottingham, New Eltham, Blackheath etc. My address is Kent but I am very close to South East London postcodes.

- When are you available?

Week nights and Saturdays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages and all levels. (5-7 year olds follow a special music program based on Kodaly principles).
All students and/or parents are invited to an informal chat and a free trial lesson to assess the needs of the student.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

ABRSM grades 1-8 Practical and Theory (other exam boards where appropriate).
GCSE music.
Available as an accompanist to other instrumentalists which can also help to prepare students for their examinations.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I do not offer on-line tutoring at present but would support current students in an on-line capacity where necessary.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I believe that all students can learn music/piano to a level that is suitable for them and I enjoy catering for all students and their individual needs.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have experience as a piano teacher since 2001. During this time I have taught one-to-one lessons from home, peripatetic group lessons in secondary school and adult group lessons in adult education. I am a qualified classroom teacher and I have taught music in secondary schools to KS3 and GCSE (11-16yrs). During my time in the classroom I taught large groups, small groups and one-to-one students; entering many for GCSE music with piano as their first instrument. I coached them after school in order to improve their keyboard skills. I have successfully entered many students for Graded examinations and I have also enjoyed developing a programming for little ones (aged 5-7) based on the Kodaly method.
I have coached students in rehearsals for concerts in school and out, I have performed in concerts myself and I have worked with other schools on many musical enrichment projects.

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

DBS checked - up to date.

- Where and with whom did you train?

Details of where I trained are in my qualifications section above.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

GTC

- Tell me about some of your current students.

GRADED EXAMS: Current students range from beginner to Grade 7.
KODALY: I have little ones working through my Kodaly based programme, some of which are currently going through the transition between this and Junior level learning eg. Music theory and closer recognition of staff notation.
ADULTS: I have some very committed adults, some of which are choosing graded examinations and some choosing to learn carefully selected pieces for their own enjoyment.
GCSE: I have some year 11 students working towards their exams and I am coaching them in such a way that caters for the specific needs of GCSE performing, composing and listening.
