Mark - West Greenwich - Music

Methodology

I'm a 27-year old passionate and experienced clarinettist based in Greenwich with an honours degree in performance from Trinity College of Music. I have flexible teaching hours available, working around my own performances and rehearsals.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach clarinet and saxophone to all ages and levels in a relaxing and friendly environment, both in classical and jazz styles, as well as music theory.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I hold a Bachelor of Music with Honours - Performance (BMus Hons) from Trinity College of Music having specialised in classical clarinet.

Prior to taking my degree I achieved Grade 8 (clarinet) and Grade 5 (music theory) from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM).

I also achieved excellent marks in GCSE Music and, later, full "A" levels in both Music and Music Technology.

- How much do you charge?

The first consultation is free of charge and without obligation.

My rates are:

£30 per hour
£20 for a half-hour

I would normally negotiate an extra fee for significant travel expenses.

- Where do you teach?

I provide teaching at the student's home, and would normally consider students living within London TFL Zones 1-3. However, I am willing to consider students living further afield (although travel costs would be incurred in such a case).

Areas which would not incur travel charges include Greenwich, Charlton, Woolwich, Blackheath, Deptford, New Cross, Eltham and Island Garden DLR / Isle of Dogs.

- When are you available?

I am very flexible throughout both the week and weekends depending upon my performance/ rehearsal schedules.

Please feel free to call me to discuss my availability.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages and abilities, from children just starting out and discovering the clarinet/ saxophone to advanced players who wish to enhance their skills.

I can also help students explore the fundamentals of music theory

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

If students wish to take graded exams on their chosen subject I use the following schemes:

- I will prepare students for classical exams set by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM).

- I am also willing to discuss appropriate graded exams in jazz under either the ABRSM or Trinity Guildhall Boards.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I believe that performing music is a wonderful experience which should be accessible to all, regardless of age.

I'm happy to teach you any style or genre to any level which you want to achieve whether that be graded or not.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

While at Trinity I studied clarinet under Fiona Cross (BBC Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra) and saxophone under Mark Lockheart (Jazz Musician of the Year 2010 - Parliamentary Jazz Awards).

Prior to attending Trinity College of Music I achieved the following clarinet competition awards:

- winner of the Portishead Music Festival - 4 times (14-17 Year age group)
- winner of the Portishead Music Festival Open Competition - 3 times
- winner of the Weston Super Mare Junior Arts Festival - 3 times

I also spent six years working with The West of England Schools Symphonic Wind Band (WESSWB), and one year with WESSO, the sister Symphony Orchestra. I played everything from Eb to EEb contrabass and 1st clarinet seats, performing at concerts both in England and on tours of Poland, Germany and France.

In addition, I spent two years with the National Youth Wind Ensemble (NYWE) under Phillip Scott playing in 1st and 2nd Bb seats, alto clarinet and contrabass clarinet.

These ensembles were led by a number of prestigious conductors including Timothy Raynish and Phillip Scott.

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

I currently hold a full and upto date DBS (CRB) Certificate.
I am very happy to bring it to any consultation lesson for you to view.

- Where and with whom did you train?

During my studies at Trinity College of Music I first studied clarinet under Victoria Soames-Samek (international soloist) followed by Fiona Cross (BBC Symphony Orchestra; London Philharmonic Orchestra).

I also studied bass clarinet under Antony Jenkins and Ian Mitchell (international contemporary soloist/ Head of Wind, Brass and Percussion - TCM)

In addition I studied jazz saxophone with Mark Lockheart (tenor sax with "Polar Bear")

Prior to commencing studies at Trinity I attended a jazz saxophone masterclass given by Pete Long (Jools Holland's Rhythm & Blues Orchestra; "Itchy Fingers")

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Member of the Musicians' Union
