Film Composer offering ABRSM Theory/Piano or Composition and Orchestration Tuition in South London

Methodology

I am a very flexible teacher teaching from the GCSE Syllabus to ABRSM Theory. I can offer advice, guidance or even lessons on compositions and orchestrations. The lessons will either be guided by me, covering counterpoint, harmony, orchestration, arranging, instrumentation and musical styles, alternatively the student can propose what the lesson covers. However this is dependant on the outcome of the lessons, whether the student requires a qualification or personal study/research.

My 5 lesson ABRSM Theory plan (between Grades 1-6) breaks down the syllabus one section per lesson, after which the student will have covered the entire exam. After the 5 lessons, a mock exam will be offered and marks and feedback will be sent back free of charge. Grade 7 and 8 are available but lesson plans vary depending on students abilities.

I am approachable and eager to inspire the next generation of musicians and composers. I will offer lots of reading/listening to do away from the lessons and will offer resources in order to ensure students understanding of the topic.

Experience

My name is Simon Leonard Cutts and I compose and produce music for Film, TV, Library and Classical Ensembles. I am also a very competent and experienced Orchestrator, Transcriber and Arranger, having written over 80 works for Orchestra, Choir, Big Band and many other Ensembles.
In 2019 I finished a three year long degree at Leeds College of Music studying BA Film Music graduating with a First Class Honours.
I have taught many students in the past about theory and composition and guided many compositions of both armatures and professionals.

I would strongly recommend Simon to anyone. Having known him for the last three years at uni, I can say he's incredibly hardworking and he is a very patient and knowledgeable teacher. What he doesn't know about piano playing and music theory isn't worth knowing!
