Ian M J - Ridgeway - Composition

Piano Accompaniment
History and Analysis
Harmonic Studies
Composition

BA (Hons) Music II.i with a first-class pass in the 45-minute public recital
MA Theory and Analysis
Licentiate diploma in Piano Performance
DipLCM in Piano Accompaniment

Grade 8 Theory

- How much do you charge?

First lesson is always free and without obligation.

- Where do you teach?

All lessons take place at my teaching studio in Swindon as I can offer students superior facilities (in terms of available scores and CDs) and a top-of-the-range German grand piano - something which many students really appreciate.

- When are you available?

10:00-20:30 Monday - Friday, subject to availability.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Ages 8+ including adults - all levels

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

All graded examinations and diplomas (up to an including Licentiate) in Piano and Theory.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

If you have any queries, why not give me a call and we can have a chat about your studies. Whether you're just starting out or at the stage where you're beginning to play more advanced repertoire, I can help and look forward to working with you. Feel free to have a look around my website ((concealed information) which may give you a little more information about who I am and what I can offer you.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching for over ten years and have experience in teaching a wide variety of students and subjects. Some of my pupils are novices taking their first steps; others are working towards advanced level grades and diplomas. I also help newly-qualified teachers (or those about to enter the profession) develop their skills.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I had appropriate checks completed when I worked in schools between 2001-04 and was deemed fit to work with children. I have no convictions that would prevent me from working with children.

- Where and with whom did you train?

Alan Wicker
Susan Thomas
John Parry

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians
Listed on the ISM Register of Professional Private Music Teachers

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My students stem from all walks of life: I have a higher than average number of adult pupils but a sizeable number of young people too. Some are working towards graded exams; others are at diploma level. Others take lessons without the need to take examinations.
