Clarinet Teacher Ruislip Graham Jones

Methodology

I can teach all ages and levels on clarinet. I teach in a relaxed and calm manner, but can push the student if required. After many years of professional playing and teaching experience, I can tailor the lesson to the needs of the student.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Clarinet as well as Grade 5 Theory. I can do this in person, or by Skype

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I studied at Hull University then the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama where I completed a BMus (1st class) then a Postgraduate Diploma (Distinction) on clarinet. I have several performing diplomas too, including DipABRSM, ATCL, LTCL and LLCM

- How much do you charge?

£36.00 for 60 mins, £27.00 for 45 mins and £20.00 for 30 mins in cash only.

- Where do you teach?

I will travel to teach at your home. I can also teach by Skype. I drive to Ruislip, Pinner, Northwood, Uxbridge, Ickenham, Hillingdon, Eastcote, and anywhere else within 15 minutes from West Ruislip!

- When are you available?

My times are flexible, around my playing job which is based in Ruislip. I will try to work around you, but it will inevitably be a different time/day each week.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages, from beginner to advanced (to Conservatoire level), regularly or for one-off, and Grade 5 Theory.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

ABRSM and Trinity exams and ABRSM Theory

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Skype is possible if you need tuition at your convenience but not in your location. Other tuition an be arranged via Q&A sessions and narrative advice using email or phone.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I look forward to hearing from you, and helping you to enjoy the pleasures of making music in your home, in a relaxed way, with humour and commitment.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have played professionally for several years after graduation, including working with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Welsh National Opera and the Royal Philarmonic Concert Orchestra. I have experience of playing in all the major concert halls in England and Wales, performing orchestral, chamber, contemporary and opera programmes. I taught at Junior and Senior levels at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama on clarinet as well as lecturing Aural training and other academic lectures. I have taught in several independent schools in Bristol, Monmouth and Chepstow before moving to London in 2008, where I am performing and teaching privately.

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

I do not do any teaching in school due to my job requirements, but have security clearance for my job - Royal Air Force Central Band

- Where and with whom did you train?

at Hull University, then to finish off my BMus at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, where I completed a Postgrad. I learned clarinet with John Reynolds - ex-Kent Opera and Rob Plane - Northern Sinfonia and BBC NOW, E flat clarinet with John Cooper - BBC NOW and Bass clarinet with Peter Fielding - Welsh National Opera.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am currently Principal Clarinet of the Central Band of the Royal Air Force, perceived internationally as perhaps the best UK military band!

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I currently have a mixture of adult learners going for grade 8 and teenagers doing various grades
