Enthusiast Music Tutor (ABRSM friendly) Music Theory up to grade 5 in Camden, Wimbledon, Greenwich, Westminster

Methodology

My approach to tutoring is based on analyzing and listening with deep attention at students’ needs and requests, being patient while motivating with positive and neutral critic.

I also responsibly acquire an appropriate teaching material and resources relating to individual students’ needs ensuring an up-to-date knowledge and a critical awareness about their level.

I mostly use Eric Taylor's The AB Guide to Music Theory Vol 1 & 2 and ABRSM Music Theory in Practice for each grade up to grade 5.

Background

Since 1997 I'm teaching in several schools and as a private tutor to more than 60 students, preparing them to exams or to become professional musicians with remarkable results.

During my studies I achieved the Music Theory grade 5 I also had the chance to attend several masterclasses in Improvisation, Music Harmony and Theory with important musicians as: George Garzone, Bob Brookmeyer, Ayn Inserto, Scott Henderson, Gary Willis, John Stowell, Bob Mintzer, Dave Holland, Kurt Rosenwinkel and more.

Mario is a fantastic teacher. He is extremely patient with my enthusiastic 6 year old and I am delighted that just after 3 lessons, my son can already play tunes like twinkle twinkle quite confidently. I highly recommend Mario and look forward to seeing what my son and him accomplish together.
