« I used to get anxious when playing the piano in front of others however with Graham's expert help and reassurance my skill and confidence in my playing has grown immeasurably. He strikes a very good balance in his choice of pieces and exercises between challenging and fun so I always look forward to practicing between our lessons together. Graham would be an excellent choice for anyone looking for a friendly, supportive and talented teacher to help them achieve their musical goals! »

Experienced Singing, Piano and Composition tutor. Online or face-to-face lessons for all abilities.

Methodology

Focusing on all aspects of technique and performance. Musicianship skills, aural, composition, harmony etc. are integrated. My structure to my lessons are flexible, and I am happy to plan the lessons in any way that suits the student. Even if it just playing, composing or singing as a hobby.

Experience

I am an active freelance musician and experienced teacher who has recently completed seven years of professional study in singing performance at the Royal Northern College of Music. Graduating with Distinction.

Has a wide range of experience including performing on many BBC sessions, radio, television and at some of Europe's top venues. Recent session work includes singing with Scottish Opera, Clean Bandit, Boy George and Hans Zimmer.

I have been teaching privately for over 12 years. I offer 30 minute, 45 minute or 60 minute lessons depending on the individual needs of the student. I am flexible with the content of lessons depending on the student - whether preparing for graded practical exams, auditions, specific technical lessons, improvising or simply singing or playing for fun!

CRB checked and approved.

Graham also is a keen composer and song-writer - he was recently commissioned to write multiple pieces of mainly vocal music for the HBO and BBC series ‘His Dark Materials’. He also works for publishing companies such as Oxford University Press and MacMillan Publishers. Some of his personal writing has won awards and been recently played on radio stations such as BBC Scotland, BBC 6Music, BBC Manchester and BBC Oxford.

His mother, Avril, is an experienced teacher also, teaching in Paisley, Scotland. And famously taught Paolo Nutini singing for 3 and half years.

I MADE MORE PROGRESS WITH GRAHAM IN 3 MONTHS THAN IN THE PAST IN 6 YEARS! I worked with Graham for 2 years-I needed help in a number of areas which included voice projection, singing and choreography with special focus to tying correctly rhythm and music and delivering the correct feeling. He has an outstanding ear and a very simple straightforward way of explaining how to make a difference to your technique. In three months I went from struggling to standing out and in two years I made more progress than in my previous 6 years at work. I owe him a lot. He is also very reliable with his appointments which is so rare these days!
