Classical Double Bass Teacher Guildford - Sara Johnson Mmus

Methodology

NOW OFFERING INTERNATIONAL ZOOM LESSONS


If you want to advance quickly, slowly, seriously or learn just for fun then drop me a line and let me know.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Double Bass and musicianship, in correlation with the lessons.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I graduated from the Guildhall School of Music with an M.Mus.

- How much do you charge?

£40 - 90 mins
£35 - 60 mins
£28 - 45 mins
£20 - 30 mins
Travel will be charged at 50ppm

Children's lessons are 30 mins (subject to age, ability or recommendation), all adult lessons are 45 mins or longer. I may recommend longer lessons or cluster lessons before a graded exam, which will cover time for aural training, coaching with accompanist, theory etc.

- Where do you teach?

I can to travel to lessons or hold lessons at my apartment in Godalming. As I am unable to transport my bass to lessons, I feel that lessons are better quality if I am able to demonstrate and play along, so prefer lessons to be held at my address.

I am available when required.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages from 6 upwards. I am happy to teach from beginner to diploma (post Grade 8).

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

ABRSM or Trinity Guildhall. I've used both exam boards and will pick and choose depending on the student.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Please do let me know your age if under 18. Otherwise just state 'over 18'.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have over 15 years experience of double bass teaching. I only teach privately these days but have been employed with Birmingham Music Service and Gloucestershire Arts. I play orchestral double bass professionally.

- Where and with whom did you train?

At the Guildhall School of Music and Drama I trained with Kevin Rundel and at Birmingham Conservatoire with Thomas Miller.

I have taught many children in schools and have been involved with outreach projects including the endangered species project and a specialist double bass project. Some of my past students have achieved an exceptional standards through ABRSM awards. I have taught and mentored students who have gained places at many of the top British music conservatoires including Royal Academy, Royal College and the Guildhall School of music and Drama.
