Experienced Piano, Trumpet and Singing Tutor Based in Shropshire and West Midlands

Methodology

I have demonstrated the ability to work at a professional level during a successful military career spanning over 24 years. I have undertaken musical roles aboard Her Majesty's Royal Yacht Britannia (1992-1997) where I was pianist for Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family. I have arranged music that has been performed at high profile concerts including the Royal Albert Hall, London. I left the Royal Marines in 2012 and currently teach in three schools in Shropshire and teach privately at home. I am most familiar with the ABRSM and Trinity College examinations. I can also teach music theory and have helped many students with GCSE and A Level coursework and theory. I have a 100% pupil pass rate for all practical and theory exams.

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 £31 for a one hour lesson.

- Where do you teach?

I prefer to teach from home but will consider travelling to pupils if they live near the south side Shrewsbury.

- When are you available?

I am currently available to teach on Tuesday and Wednesday late afternoon into the early evening.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach from ABRSM and Trinity College grade 1 and will teach pupils over the age of 8 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 GCSE Music Coursework.

Background

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 from within the Royal Marines Band Service, where I have demonstrated the ability to work at a professional level during a successful military career spanning over 24 years. I have undertaken musical roles on board Her Majesty's Royal Yacht Britannia where I was pianist for Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family from 1992-1997. I have arranged music that has been performed at high profile concerts including the Royal Albert Hall, London. I left the Royal Marines in March 2012 and currently 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.
