Eloise - Kilburn - Double bass


I am a passionate qualified double bass and music theory teacher with an MA and BMus from the Royal Academy of Music. I love being able to share my knowledge of the double bass with others and and am happy to teach all ages and abilities.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Double Bass, Music Theory and Musicianship

- Tell me about your qualifications.

MA in Music and BMUS (Hons) from the the Royal Academy of Music. LRAM Teaching Diploma with Honours. ATCL Diploma in Double Bass performance. 9 GCSE's at A-B standard 3 A Levels at A-C standard

- How much do you charge?

Double Bass, Musicianship and Music Theory

£40 for one hour
£30 for 45 minutes

- Where do you teach?

I teach at home in Queen's Park, North London, but I am willing to travel if it is near or in Central London, Fulham or near to North West London

- When are you available?

I am available on varying weekdays, Saturdays from 2pm onwards, and on Sundays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages and abilities. The youngest Double Bass student I'd be happy to teach would be 5, depending on their height and arm length.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare them for the Associated Board exams or Trinity Guildhall exams, where appropriate. However, if the pupil does not wish to do exams, or if I do not feel it is right for them, then that is also fine.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I absolutely love to teach, and wish to inspire more children and adults to start learning the double bass, as it is such a fantastic and versatile instrument! I also believe that music theory is a vital part of being an all rounded musician. Please contact me if you are looking for lessons or have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!
