- Where do you teach?

I teach from my home set up studio in East Finchley, Hight Barnet. I'm also happy to come to your place depending on how far you live.

I am quite flexible and available during weekdays and Saturdays.

I can prepare students for their music exams and college auditions upon request.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

When we express ourselves we're essentially exploring our character. Whatever your musical aim, I would be more than happy to work with you to achieve it, whether it is learning how to jam along, grade work, or explore harmony (diatonic chords, modes, scales, triads, arpeggios, etc).

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

Teaching experience:
I have been teaching individual students of all levels and ages for the past 6 years. My students come from different backgrounds: Jazz, Pop, R&B, Gospel, Rock, Classical, Folk and Latin. I choose to approach lessons with an open mind and tailor it to the student individual needs.

I'm also an experienced group workshop leader. In collaboration with charity 'Live Music Now', I facilitate interactive workshops for a variety of people with myriad and complex requirements including educational and physical needs.

Professional experience:
I am a highly experienced guitarist, singer, percussionist and sample operator at various groups. Collaboration highlights include: Songwriting and production for NINA MIRANDA (Smoke City), percussion, singer, guitarist and co-writer for NUBIYAN TWIST (Feat. on BBC 1Xtra & BBC radio 6) and backing vocals for BEBEL GILBERTO (London Fashion Week 2017).

Performance highlights include: Meltdown Festival (Queen Elizabeth Hall), Edinburgh Jazz Festival, Jazz Café (Camden), Band on the Wall (Manchester), supporting artists like Quantic, Robert Glasper and Hot 8 Brass Band.

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

Yes

- Where and with whom did you train?

Tom Excell, guitarist and producer (Nubiyan Twist), renowned Brazilian percussionist Peu Meurray (Marisa Monte, Carlinhos Brown), masterclass with Jamiroquai's band and guitarist Guthrie Govan.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

PRS (Performance Royalty society) and PPL (Phonographic Performance Limited)

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My students vary in age, skill and commitment to their art. One thing they seem to share in common is their will to overcome limitations and expand on their creativity.

Pilo is a great teacher. He is friendly, patient and encouraging, which are the essential qualities of a good teacher. He is also a talented guitarist, percussionist and singer, and I have no hesitation in recommending him.

I have found Pilo to be an excellent teacher. He is patient and considerate, and able to quickly understand his student's requirements, thus providing perfectly tailored teaching. I would highly recommend him to anyone wishing to learn guitars or percussion.
