I approach each lesson based on the learner's competency. At the beginning of each course, I make sure to find out what the students would like to gain from the time they spend with me and tailor what I teach around that. I find this method helps to achieve the highest rate of customer satisfaction and i turn makes the experience more enjoyable for both parties.
I have an undergraduate and a masters degree in music production and have worked within the industry in various roles for the past 5 years. I have worked in a number of educational institutions as a teacher, lecturer and technician. As a freelancer, I have worked on musical projects as a group and on my own as well as writing music for commercial adverts, short films and within the underground music scene. During this time I have performed as a Dj and as an ensemble to a variety of crowds which have all been received very positively.
A highly driven and motivated individual with experience in administration, events management, artist liaison and social media marketing. This experience was gained working for a successful independent record label, a Berlin-based booking agency, as well as within higher educational institutions.
