Masters student and Guitar teacher with 8 years teaching experience of guitar, bass guitar and songwriting in Glasgow. Have also worked as a teacher in China, USA and UK.

Methodology

My teaching method

I am a Scottish guitarist and guitar and bass guitar teacher who has over 8 years teaching experience across Scotland, China and the USA.
I have a passion for music and really enjoying teaching guitar as I believe that it is a very interesting skill. I have developed my own set of teaching methods which have been very successful across all age groups and levels. I have experience teaching both individual and group lessons, from beginner to advanced and bass guitar lessons to beginners and intermediates. For all levels I have a block set of techniques and songs that I have developed in relation to Grades 1-8, I can prepare my students for exams using both electric and acoustic guitar Grades. Although if preferred I am happy to use and recommend books where we can work through or a mixture of both. For beginners, I have developed guitar-based games that ensure that pupils are having fun whilst they are learning and encourage them to improve each lesson. I tailor my lessons based on the individual and ensure that my pupils go at their own pace and enjoy learning and challenging themselves during my lessons; I can adapt my teaching style and use alternative methods to help pupils having difficulty.

Background

I have played guitar for over 16 years at 6 years old and began teaching at my school when I was 14 years old, where I set up a guitar club in the school to help primary school children, secondary school children and children with support needs, the opportunity to learn how to play the guitar and bass guitar.

Nicholas's CV

I currently attend the University of Stirling where I am undergoing my Masters in Sports Management, I have previously graduated from the University of Strathclyde Glasgow with an honours degree in Marketing and a degree in Business law.

During my five years working within Glasgow, I have worked in a number of projects, including teaching guitar (acoustic, electric and 12-string), bass guitar, music marketing, song writing, band formation and musical groups with people with support needs. After my gaining experience with people with support needs, I travelled to the USA to work in at Camp Albrecht Acres, a special needs summer camp in Dubuque, Iowa. I had worked there for two summers, as a general counsellor and music co-ordinator. In the summer of 2015, I worked in a marketing role in Beijing for the UK government where I was involved in marketing projects, some involved with music marketing. In 2016 I moved to Guangzhou, China to live for one year, as a foreign English, marketing and music teacher for the British Council. During my time in Guangzhou I taught over 700 children. I also worked for community-based music charity helping people over 16 years old develop musician’s musicianship and performance skills. I was involved in Human resources, marketing and helping to develop song writing and guitar skills of the musicians that we represented.
