Elina - Higher Blackley - Music

Methodology

If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to develop your talents and gain more confidence in doing anything that you are passionate about, use it NOW while you still can and have time for it. Don't let anyone/anything stop you.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Piano, Keyboard, Singing, Music Theory, and Russian language.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) in Manchester, Principal Study instrument: Pianoforte in 2008. I now hold a BMus(Hons) degree. Prior to this I completed my A-levels in Music (grade A), Media (grade A), IT (grade A), and Russian (grade A). I also studied classical vocal for a few years.

I have recently started working towards Masters in Vocal Pedagogy.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £32per hour, £27 for a 45 minute lesson and £22 for half an hour. A discount of £2 per lesson is offered when booking 5 or more lessons in advance.

Group lessons are available with a maximum of two students at the same time for an hour long session.

- Where do you teach?

I have a music/teaching studio with a professional keyboard and a piano at home in Prestwich (North Manchester). Occasionally I would travel to students' houses in Prestwich and Whitefield for a higher fee.

- When are you available?

I teach any time on week days, as well as Sundays. Normally I am quite flexible with time, where a student or myself can cancel and rearrange the lesson just one or two days in advance. However, in the event of a cancellation being made less than 24 hours in advance, the full cost of the lesson would be charged, unless it was due to health reasons.
My availability changes time to time, therefore it would be best to discuss it when you contact me and I will do my best to allocate the most convenient slot for you.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I have broad experience and enjoy teaching students of all ages and abilities. I have taught some students with SEN. I am happy to work towards abrsm theory and practical examinations.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

A-levels and GCSEs in Music and Russian as well as ABRSM grade performance and theory exams.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

This will be most relevant to students learning Russian with me. If a student is unable to have a lesson a certain week, I will be willing to set some homework, which they could email to me once it is complete. I would then assess written assignments, make corrections and send it back to them via email.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I always strive to achieve the best results and believe that anyone, given the right opportunity can succeed as long as they devote enough time and effort to whatever they are naturally good at. Do not give up and be patient! I believe that it is a sin to waste any talents that you have by not developing them further.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have worked with young children, teenagers, and adults of different abilities and backgrounds. In every case I devised a teaching method for each one of them, tailoring a unique programme of study to cater for their personal needs and expectations.

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

I do have a current valid CRB certificate as I often work for various primary and secondary schools.

- Where and with whom did you train?

Although my studies, particularly a degree from the RNCM, gave me valuable knowledge and expertise, I believe it is my likeable personality, a friendly approach, and enthusiasm that make me the successful teacher I am today.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I taught music in a secondary school, and worked for various Music Services, as well as two teaching agencies: Capita Education Resourcing and Select Education.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Two of my younger students successfully performed at the RNCM last year. Another student of mine who, in the past has changed a number of piano tutors due to frustration he had with his sight-reading, which was preventing him from taking Grade 1 examination, while his playing standard was of Grade 4, has been encouraged by me to practise his sight-reading on a daily basis, which led to a remarkable progress! A lot of my pupils regularly perform at their schools' concerts, inspiring other pupils to study a musical instrument to be like them. Some of my pupils from overseas gave small concerts in their countries during school holidays.

In 2017 I organised my first charity concert in Bury Town Hall in order to give my students an opportunity to perform in a great venue in front of 200 people and raise money for support in education of children with SEN and some cancer research.

We managed to raise over £2,500!

The concert was such a success that I am intending to organise another one in the near future.
