Professional Musician & Tutor | Tuition in Singing, Theory, Oboe and Curriculum Music Content | London

Methodology

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.

Experience

- 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?

Yes

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.

G
Gillian

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.

R
Ralph

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.

P
Patrick

Greg is a remarkably accomplished musician, and a very fine singer. He is utterly reliable in terms of sight reading, and his voice is rich and fully under control. He has a very natural understanding of what is required for ensemble singing, but is also very capable of excellent solo contributions as well. His love of choral music is evident, and his interest in and understanding of a wide range of musical periods and styles is notable.

M
Matt

Greg is an exceptional musician and performer who combines creativity, precision and adventurousness to great effect. As a musical director, Greg brings the best possible from his vocalists and musicians. As a performer he never fails to impress, not only with his vocal, but also his acting versatility.
Personally, I have very much enjoyed every opportunity I have had to work with Greg and he has been a huge creative influence on my own work.

Alex

Greg has been a huge help in meeting what seemed a mammoth challenge just six weeks ago: singing a solo as best man for a friend's wedding. Greg's positivity and can-do attitude went a long way to making me think it was possible, as did his experience as an a cappella singer. Just a few sessions and six weeks later I was ready to go. The performance - to 200 people - was great, and most people that spoke to me afterwards assumed I sung for a living. This wouldn't have been possible without Greg!
