David - Chorlton - Music Theory

Methodology

Hello! I'm a cellist and pianist looking to teach people of all ages and abilities. I'm based in Didsbury and look forward to showing you how rewarding music really can be!

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach the cello, piano, GCSE/A Level Music, Chamber Music, and ABRSM Graded Music Theory Exams.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

2004: ABRSM Grade 8 Cello - Distinction
2007 - 2010: First Class BA(Hons) degree in music from Leeds College of Music (LCM)
2010 - 2012: MMus in Solo Performance (Distinction) from the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM)

- How much do you charge?

£12.50 for half an hour
£18 for 45 minutes
£25 for 1 hour

I offer a free 30 minute consultation lesson so you can come along and have a taster. We can also talk about your aims and decide what the best plan of action is for you.

- Where do you teach?

Ideally I would like to teach at my house. However, if necessary, I can travel to the student's house if it's not too far from my house (East Didsbury, M20 5AA).

I teach at Leeds College of Music every Thursday and have spaces for new pupils who live in Leeds and want to learn on a Thursday.

- When are you available?

My timetable is very flexible. I am confident I can find a time that suits us both.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Cello: ALL ages and ALL levels are welcome!
Piano: Beginner - Grade 4

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I can prepare my students for any exams, but the most popular choice is the ABRSM Graded Examinations. I am also able to prepare students for scholarship auditions, music college auditions and orchestral auditions.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I look forward to meeting you, and helping you on your journey to becoming a fine musician!

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

Teaching experience: I have taught the cello for a number of years now. I have also given many cello sectionals and coached ensembles (quartets/trios etc) over the last few years. I am a cello professor at Leeds College of Music where I teach on the Further Education course.

Performing experience: I have given many recitals, both as soloist and in a string quartet, around the UK. Notable venues include Leeds Town Hall, Manchester Town Hall, British Gas Headquarters, Worcester and Hertford College Chapels (Oxford) and The Venue (Leeds). I regularly record for film and television, and frequently appear on BBC Radio 4. Recent engagements include a tour of Sweeney Todd in Leeds (West Yorkshire Playhouse) and Manchester (Royal Exchange).

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

Yes.

- Where and with whom did you train?

Leeds College of Music: Juliet Welchman and Judith Burgin (DipRCM, ARCM)
Royal Northern College of Music: Emma Ferrand (DipRAM, ARAM, FRNCM)

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

The Musician's Union.
European String Teachers Association.
