As a professional singer, I have built up experience and knowledge which I use to deliver fun, educational and progressive sessions with students of all ages and abilities.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
With a performance and academic background, I offer tuition in singing (classical, musical theatre, and pop), music theory, oboe, and curriculum music content. I believe that performance skills and technical understanding are equally important and know that tuition is not only a great way to improve your musical skill set, but also develop self confidence and focus in other areas too.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I read Music at The University of Nottingham, McGill University in Montreal, and at the Royal Northern College of Music Junior Department. Whilst studying, I performed in, and directed, choral music, theatre, opera, and musical theatre productions.
- How much do you charge?
I charge £40/hr which includes travel expenses
- Where do you teach?
I live in Greenwich/Deptford area and am happy to travel to locations nearby. I can teach either at my home or at students' houses.
- When are you available?
As a freelance singer, my schedule changes week to week but I try to keep tuition as regular as possible. Do get in touch for further details- I'm sure we can sort something out!
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach any age from primary schools pupils through to experienced adults, catering for each pupil's individual needs.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I am happy to teach via Skype - further details can be arranged by contacting me.
- What kind of experience do you have?
Through work with the London-based a cappella quintet Apollo5, I deliver workshops and performances across the country and abroad with people of all ages from early years through to corporate sessions. I have acted as a vocal coach on various theatre productions around London, am currently Musical Director of St Alfege Youth Choir in Greenwich, and have also worked as a music tutor with the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain and London Youth Choir. I have experience teaching both one on one lessons and group sessions, both in schools and privately.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
• BA (Hons) Music - The University of Nottingham/McGill University, Montreal
• Current DBS Certificate
• Musicians' Union
Greg's willingness, confidence, patience and capability as a vocal coach was remarkable, and very rarely seen in people of his age.
Greg is very ambitious with a strong sense of determination and dedication in his pursuit of excellence. He works hard to continue refining his craft.
Greg is a talented musician and he shared his talents with us generously. All students enjoyed having him in the class and he was an excellent role model for them. He has a confident, warm manner and was willing to help in any way needed. He was comfortable addressing the class as a whole as well as giving individual or group tuition. He coped well with the range of ages and we both enjoyed some lovely lessons with the Year 2 class.
Greg is an outstandingly good ensemble singer. He has a lovely voice with which he can sing solos excellently, but it is his team playing spirit which is the most remarkable, and a very fine attribute. He makes a lovely sound right across the baritone range, and sight reads faultlessly. He is liked by everyone, and has a delightful way of deferring, in the best sense, to others. As such, he is the perfect ensemble singer.
