My methodology lies in inclusion and engagement. I have developed an ability to engage students in what may seem like dull studies. I am an incredibly outgoing and attentive tutor who aims to achieve whatever the student aims to achieve.
I am currently in my final year of study at Newcastle University studying BA Music Hons. My performance background predominantly lies in folk music of the British isles, performing instruments such as Piano Accordion, Piano, Bodhran, and Whistle. I also performed in an Alternative Rock band for 5 years playing drum kit. I am now focusing my studies in composition, specifically for moving image.
Prices will be slightly higher due to:
- Higher level of tuition required
- Travel/long distance
