Highly experienced composer and music producer, currently studying for a PhD at the Royal Northern Colleg of Music. Based in Sheffield.

Methodology

This depends entirely on the student's needs, aims and requirements.

I am comfortable progressing through Grades (ABRSM, Trinity, Rockschool etc) within a goal-orientated structure in order for students to achieve the qualifications they need for college and university admission.

Or alternatively, if a more relaxed and flexible approach is required, I am happy to tailor a tuition blue-print based on a more individualistic approach which aims to develop the student through pieces and exercises selected to improve techniques and musicality with less rigid goals and timelines.

Background

I am a composer and producer who creates live and recorded music for concert performance and various multimedia projects.

I have just returned from three wonderful years in Amsterdam in order to begin Ph.D. in composition at the Royal Northern College of Music. I have composed music for numerous ensembles, from symphony orchestras to saxophone quartets. I have myself been taught by world-class composers (including the former composer laureate of the Netherlands). I look forward to passing on the skills and experiences I gained whilst studying abroad. I will aim to provide a unique and personalized approach to music tuition, as I myself have experienced from my wonderful teachers in Amsterdam. Individuality is the key ingredient to being a musician in today's world, and I will endeavor to help my students find their own voice.

I also have two years of experience working in a special needs school in Liverpool.

My lessons will be focused but friendly and aim to bring out the best in the student.
