Meyrick - Brockley - Composition

Methodology

Please do follow the link below (or copy and paste into your browser address bar) to view a video of me playing one of my set pieces and then excerpts from four of my improvisational compositions.

(concealed information)

Talented and largely self-taught, I have experience as a professional musician, song writer, and composer, as well as experience as an engineer in a sound studio, and some experience producing music. I am analytical and creative, and can explain most aspects of what I teach so that the student can gain a clear understanding and a good feeling for the subject.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach piano mostly, but also composing, some theory to support your intuitions, musicianship (largely for playing in a band), keyboards; I have a Moog Voyager, Micro Moog, Nord Electro, Grand Piano, Clavinet D6, and Virtual instruments including the Vienna Symphonic Library Special Edition.
What I most enjoy is to help to develop the creativity in a person, whatever instrument they use.

(concealed information)

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Physics, history of art and architecture, and geography A-levels. Foundation course in Architecture. A further two A-levels in Philosophy, and Applied Maths and a joint degree in Physics and Philosophy. I also studied Russian and got a GCE.

- How much do you charge?

Fees are negotiable, but around £25 for one hour. I would charge £30+ per hour for group lessons.

- Where do you teach?

I can travel to all parts of Lewisham, to Brockley, Nunhead, Peckham, Sydenham, Greenwich, Charlton, Bromley, Camberwell, Dulwich, and I would charge a little more for traveling unless we have a two hour lesson. I prefer a longer lesson with a short break in the middle.

- When are you available?

I am available most Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and most evenings.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I do not teach classical higher than 'Fur Elise', and I prefer not to teach notes, but enjoy teaching the basics.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I taught myself piano from the age of ten, and played 4 nights a week in a pub band for three years from the age of 16. However, I followed a scientific and arts path, taking art, physics, history of art and architecture, and geography A-levels. I finished a foundation course in Architecture at what was then the Polytechnic of Central London (PCL), but I was playing all the time as well. I then left academia and found a publisher for my songs, I played keyboards and bass for Desmond Decker and keyboards and a little sax for The Human League on their 86/87 world tour. I also worked as a sound engineer, and produced some tracks in a professional studio. I later went back to education, but again not in music, but got A-level Philosophy and A-level Applied Maths in order to start a joint degree in Physics and Philosophy. I also studied Russian and got a GCE in this. I got my honours degree, and immediately went to live in Vienna, Austria, where I composed my solo piano pieces, and taught English and gave piano lessons for seven years. Before leaving Vienna, I gave two concerts of my own piano music.

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

I have not taught in a British school (I taught English in Vienna in two schools for seven years), and cannot get CRB checked as self employed.
