John - Macclesfield - Music Theory

Methodology

I am a highly experienced Trombone player and professional peripatetic brass teacher, passionate about brass playing and sharing my knowledge and experiences with students.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

My principal instrument is Trombone but I am qualified and have experience teaching all brass Instruments.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I studied the Trombone to the highest level at The Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester and then progressed to a Postgraduate Certificate of Education in Music with Specialist Instrumental Teaching Manchester Metropolitan University.

- How much do you charge?

My current rates stand as £25 per hour or £15 per half hour session. If I have to travel to the lesson I will charge an amount extra to cover my expenses. This can be worked out per individual case.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at my own home in Macclesfield, just off Buxton road only a short walk from Macclesfield train station. There are excellent train links to most areas or I have ample room for cars to park at the property. I am willing to travel into Manchester and Stockport for teaching and into parts of Cheshire, Derbyshire and North Staffordshire.

- When are you available?

Usually I am available from late afternoon through the evenings and at weekends. During school holidays my teaching times can become far more flexible.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I am happy to teach any age of pupil as anyone can benefit from the enjoyment of learning a brass instrument! It is never too late or too early to start to learn. My professional work covers all ages both Primary (Key Stages 1 and 2) and Secondary (Key stages 3, 4 and 5).

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I frequently enter pupils for the Associate Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) exams and pride myself on having never had a pupil fail. ABRSM exams post Grade 5 harbour valuable UCAS points, an extra great reason to enter. In addition to these Graded exams, I prepare children for recital performances for GCSE and A Level music exams.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching Brass Instruments for many years now with local ensembles, by having my own private pupils and professionally, I work as a Peripatetic Brass teacher with Staffordshire Performing Arts (SPA), delivering one to one, group and whole class instrumental lessons. I also direct a number of ensembles for (SPA). I previously taught brass for Merchant Taylors' Boys' School in Crosby, Liverpool.

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

I have a current CRB disclosure certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

The Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.
Manchester Metropolitan University.
