Jon - Kentish Town - Support For Students With Dyspraxia

Methodology

I'm a trombone, brass, piano and music teacher, happy to travel to anywhere in Greater London.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach all brass instruments (especially trombone, euphonium, tenor horn, baritone horn and tuba, but also trumpet, cornet and french horn), classical piano, theory and pop/rock singing.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I'm a recent graduate of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, having completed my Batchelor of Music in Classical Trombone.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £30 an hour, (£20 for a half hour) which includes travel. I can offer a taster session of half an hour for free, if you want to try it out, and am happy to give discounts for group bookings or families.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at the students' homes. Obvious areas for me to travel to are City of London, Islington, Camden, Dalston, Hackney, Shoreditch, Bow, Newham, East London, Tower Hamlets, the Docklands, Whitechapel, London Bridge, Southwark, Bermondsey, Lambeth, Walthamstow and the West End, but if I can get there I will come and teach you!

- When are you available?

My availability is pretty flexible. If you require a set time each week, this can easily be arranged, but I have usually found that my pupils want a more flexible timetable, which i am more than happy to provide.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I will teach brass instruments from about 7 years old. However, for singing and songwriting, I will start to teach at around 15 years old; this is to avoid causing damage to the student by pushing the voice too early. There's no upper limit to this; if you're a 98 year old wanting to start playing the euphonium for the first time, great.

I teach from any level to any level for brass, and up to grade 6/7 piano. I am an experienced player, having completed my degree at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, but teach from complete beginners, covering technique as well as how to read music.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare my students for ABRSM grades for trombone, brass, classical piano and theory. I teach using the Rockschool syllabus for pop/rock singing.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Online tutoring would take the form of emailing me scanned-in or recorded answers to questions I'd set, or my answering questions asked. I prefer to teach one-to-one, at least now and then.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught brass, keyboard and singing privately in London for about 2 years, and work with the London Boroughs of Newham and Tower Hamlets as a teacher in primary schools, teaching trombonists, trumpeters, and keyboardists in years 5 and 6.

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

I have an up-to-date Enhanced Disclosure certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I have a Batchelor's degree from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where I studied with Simon Wills, John Kenny, Chris Houlding and Eric Crees. I studied classical piano with Margaret Bennet and Dr. Paul Fugler.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My students are wonderful; I am very keen on music as a creative activity, so love to get my pupils to improvise and compose; some of the pieces that have come from this have been very effective!
