Experienced Piano and Theory Tutor with LRSM Diploma Teaching Classical and Jazz - Shropshire

Methodology

I am a highly skilled and experienced pianist, trumpet player and conductor who has demonstrated the ability to work at a professional level during a very successful career spanning over 30 years. I have undertaken musical appointments as pianist in residence for Her Majesty the Queen and the wider Royal Family and played at Royal weddings and wedding anniversaries as well as having personally performed for foreign royalty, UK Prime Ministers and US Presidents. I have also supported well known names from the show business world including Sir Tim Rice, Ronnie Corbett, Engelbert Humperdink and Tony Christie to name but a few. I have also arranged music that has been performed at high profile concerts including the Royal Albert Hall, London. I currently teach in two schools in Shropshire and teach online from home. I can also teach music theory and have been successful as a private tutor helping students pass GCSE and A Level with the OCR Examining Board. I have a 100% pupil pass rate for all practical and theory exams.

I started to playing piano at the age of six. From the age of 10 I studied with eminent pianist Dr Colin Kingsley in Edinburgh. A move to England saw me study with Neville Dilkes, associate conductor of the Philomusica of London. I have the distinction of having been awarded medals by the Worshipful Company of Musicians, London for solo performances on piano and I also have an LRSM Diploma from the Royal Schools of Music.

Learning a musical instrument should be fun! I try to tailor all of my teaching to the student's requirements. I have pupils off all ages and abilities and have a 100% pass rate for exams.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Classical Piano up to diploma standard with either ABRSM or Trinity Examination Boards. As a jazz pianist I can teach ABRSM Jazz Piano to Grade 5. I can also teach ABRSM theory at all grades. I am able to tutor GCSE and A Level students and assist with composition coursework.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

LRSM (Licentiate Royal Schools of Music). Qualified as a Bandmaster in the Royal Marines Band Service.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £16 for 30 minutes or £32 for a one hour lesson.

- Where do you teach?

I prefer to teach from home and online.

- When are you available?

I am currently available to teach on most weekday afternoons and evenings.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach from ABRSM and Trinity College grade 1 upwards and will teach pupils over the age of 9 years old.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I am well aquainted with the Associated Board and Trinity College examining syllabuses and can teach any grades up to and including diploma standard. I can also tutor students that need help with music theory or GCSE Music Coursework. I am an assessor for the OCR Examining Board at GCSE Level.

Experience

I have been teaching since 2011 and currently have approximately thirty pupils. No pupil has failed an exam to date and I have had passes at all grades. I have also tutored pupils in theory and coursework to pass GCSE and A Level exams culminating in a place at university.

- What kind of experience do you have?

I am a highly skilled and experienced musician and conductor with over 30 years experience. I have arranged music that has been performed at high profile concerts including the Royal Albert Hall, London. I teach in two schools in Shropshire as well as being an assessor for GCSE Music with the OCR Examination Board. I therefore have extremely good knowledge of OCR GCSE requirements and have taught composition and advised on performance coursework in schools.

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

I have an enhanced CRB Certificate for each of the schools I teach including the Telford and Wrekin local authority.

- Where and with whom did you train?

Studied piano perfomance with Dr Colin Kingsley in Edinburgh and Neville Dilkes, associate contuctor of the Philomusica of London as well as the Royal Marines School of Music.
