Experienced pianist with professional qualifications offering piano tuition in the Southside of Glasgow

Methodology

I use the ABSRM standard as a cornerstone for my teaching, and look to prepare students for grade exams by teaching them to how to learn, practice, and execute their set pieces to a high level. In the past my students have consistently achieved honours and distinction marks.

On top of that I like to accomodate my lessons to the individual needs of my students, as the standardised approach of solely grade centred learning can stifle the enjoyment students get from the lessons—I try to tailor lesson plans to the interests of the student—for example teaching them pop music they might be interested in, or giving them tools to compose, write, and record music.

My lessons keep piano technique as the core focus, while delivering a rounded curriculum that helps them understand better the pieces they are learning, rather than focusing on rote-learning. The grade exams are an important cornerstone because they offer a useful method of charting progression, and of giving students concrete goals to aim for, but it's important to keep lessons enjoyable and to deliver teaching that they will find engaging. I have taught students of all ages, and have learnt to tailor my approach to the age, interests, and feedback of each individual student. I put a lot of work into teaching outside of the direct time spent with the student, preparing detailed lesson plans and planning out the medium and long term progression for each student.

Experience

I am a recently graduated student of Music and Philosophy from Dublin, just moved over to Glasgow. I have been teaching piano for 5 years, first on a casual basis, and then after I was awarded an Associate Diploma in Piano Teaching from the Royal Irish Academy of Music, on a more professional basis. As well as being a trained pianist and teacher, I have a wide range of musical skills and knowledge that I bring to my teaching practice. My university course was mostly focused on musical theory and history, and outside of an academic context I have worked as a composer and sound designer for theatrical productions and for short films. I also work as a freelance orchestrator, and have dabbled in music production and audio engineering.

Details

I am willing to offer a first lesson for free, and happy to travel within the Glasgow area, although I am based in the Southside so students based around Queen's Park are eligible for a £5 discount. Adult unwaged students are also eligible for a £5 discount. Lessons for beginning students are 45 minutes long, and cost £20, while lessons for intermediate to advanced students are an hour long at £25.
