I am a private music tutor and clarinettist in Cardiff, graduating with a BMus (Hons) - specialising in Clarinet Performance - from the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. I studied tripling and orchestral performance under the guidance of: John Cooper, Timothy Lines, James Mainwaring, and Meyrick Alexander.

I offer an inclusive, personalised, and motivating approach to teaching - encouraging aspiring musicians of all ages to reach their full potential.

At the heart of my teaching is fun and motivation, tailored to the needs of each individual student. A typical lesson includes work on tone, technique, stamina, expression, theory and aural skills.

My tuition is suitable for all types of musicians, from casual to expert, beginner to advanced - if you want to learn a new instrument, rediscover an old passion, work towards graded exams, or just play for fun!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I am a professional clarinettist, music tutor, workshop leader, and graduate from the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama with a BMus (Hons) – specialising in clarinet performance & woodwind tripling.

    Early on in my music college education, I discovered an aptitude for teaching (largely through community outreach projects at RWCMD), and soon became passionate about enhancing transferable skills - whilst also bridging the gap between primary & secondary school music tuition.


    I hold: an up-to-date DBS (available on the Update Service), CPD Certified 'Level 4 in Higher Learning Teaching Assistant' (with Higher Distinction), EduCare 'NSPCC Child Protection Awareness' & 'NHS First Aid Essentials Level 2'. I am also registered with the Education Workforce Council as a 'School Learning Support Worker'.

   Currently, I am working as a Teaching Assistant for Year 3 & 4, at St. Patrick's R.C. Primary School (Grangetown). I have also taught at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama Junior Department, Forte School of Music, and SuperStars Inc.

    Particularly enjoying giving back to my community, I have volunteered at: Touch Trust (session assistant / performance specialist), Kings Monkton School (assistant Year 3 teacher), Making Music Changing Lives (assistant clarinet teacher), Bryn Deri Primary School (orchestra conductor / musical director), and Music in Hospitals & Care (fundraising assistant, coordinator & ambassador).

    As a Welsh musician, I am proud of my heritage - and have consistently supported Welsh Music, via a five-year affiliation with the National Youth Wind Orchestra and National Youth Orchestra of Wales (holding the seat of 'Principal Clarinettist' for two consecutive years).

   I have performed in orchestral, solo, chamber, and choral settings at the following prestigious venues: Royal Albert Hall (London), St. David's Hall (Cardiff), The Sage (Gateshead), Berlin Konzerthaus (Germany), Warsaw Cathedral (Poland), Sagrada Familia (Spain), and Disneyland Paris (France).

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

Yes - Certificate Number C(concealed information) (available to view on the DBS Update Service)

- Where and with whom did you train?

Gwent Music & RWCMD
Peter Fielding (Clarinet)
Tim Lines, John Cooper & Lenny Sayers (Clariet)
James Mainwaring (Flute, Sax & Clarinet)

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Education Workforce Council, DBS Update Service & ABRSM Teacher Voices.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have a range of students, beginner to advanced, child to adult, casual to regular. I tailor my music to suit each individual client and am highly flexible / adaptable to their individual needs.
