About the lesson

I tailor lessons to the student and am happy teaching using sheet music and by ear. I think every musician should learn to do both so I encourage ear training/active listening, sight reading and transcription in lessons and as homework. I tailor lessons to the student with my own transcriptions and teaching material and a selection of my favourite teaching books. I am happy to work through specific material if provided by the student.

I tailor lessons to the student with a a balance between enabling the student to commit to their practice by laying out clear goals and expectations, and presenting enjoyable lessons with a laid-back attitude that give full consideration to enabling the student’s enthusiasm for music and sound to grow.

I enjoy working with students who are enthusiastic, whether with the simple goal of enjoying their music or greater aspirations for a career in music (not that the two are mutually exclusive!). I like teaching because it is challenging and requires the teacher to adapt to the student and to kindle their enthusiasm.

About Simon

Hi, my name is Simon Toner and I am a Glasgow based music teacher specialising in bass guitar, double bass, jazz and composition. I am also a composer and musician with international credits on film scores having spent the last 2 years in London writing for theatre, I have over 10 years of experience touring as a bassist around Europe and I studied a BA in Popular Music at Edinburgh Napier University and diplomas from ABRSM and NFTS.

I have applied over 10 years experience and a Popular Music degree in bass and composition to my teaching practice where I first and foremostly enable my students to grow a greater enthusiasm and love for music and sound. I have been teaching professionally for 5+ years.

I am interested in teaching both adults and children. I can help you prepare for school music exams, Rock School Grades, ABRSM Grades and Music Theory exams. I can teach many different styles such as Rock, Blues, Pop, Metal, Funk, Folk, Jazz whatever you want!

I play double bass and bass guitar regularly with jazz bands, singers and DIY projects and have toured around Europe. Away from jazz I have played with a variety of original music projects.

I developed to become the musician I am today by expanding my musicality through teachers, some more typical than others. My music heroes are Miles Davis, Charles Mingus and those other jazz (and bass) giants but also film composers like Bernard Herrmann and Michael Kamen, conductors like Daniel Barenboim and unique artists like Bjork.
