« Eloise is a wonderful teacher. She is professional and passionate about the bass, and while she has high expectations of her students, she is also caring, encouraging and supportive in equal measure. Eloise has a natural charm and is very good at picking up on her student's weaknesses as well as strengths. Eloise is an inspiration to my daughter, and I would recommend Eloise without question. »

Eloise - Kilburn - Music Theory

Methodology

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

£45 for one hour
£35 for 45 minutes
£25 for 30 minutes


An extra £5 is charged if I go to you for lessons.

- 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!

Eloise is a wonderful teacher. She is professional and passionate about the bass, and while she has high expectations of her students, she is also caring, encouraging and supportive in equal measure. Eloise has a natural charm and is very good at picking up on her student's weaknesses as well as strengths. Eloise is an inspiration to my daughter, and I would recommend Eloise without question.

Sylvia

Eloise has a very warm and fun personality and her enthusiasm and attention to detail is very infectious. She has a very natural way of connecting with her students and is not afraid to challenge them to get the best out of them. She is an excellent communicator and very approachable. We also found that she picks up any problems with technique immediately and has a strong sense for getting the basics right first. She has a great way in encouraging her students that they can do anything if they want to. Eloise runs fantastic workshops too and you can tell that she truly loves the double bass and music in general.

Lyndsey

Eloise is an excellent teacher who has helped our daughter to achieve a very standard of playing. She has exacting standards, a passion for excellence and great attention to detail as well as being a supportive teacher. She is highly recommended.

Caroline

My daughter has benefited enormously from having Eloise as her double bass teacher. Eloise's knowledge of the instrument is superb and her teaching rigorous. She spends a lot of time thinking about how to help her students and goes to the extra trouble of arranging pupil concerts to give them an opportunity to perform. She is an excellent teacher.
