Miles - Liswerry - Piano

Methodology

Hello. I have a passion for music, love of teaching and a desire to help anyone of any age with anything music related.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

On the practical side, I teach keyboard, piano and voice; on the theoretical side I teach A level, GCSE and theory. I could also teach arranging, composing and conducting.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

My B.Mus (Hons) and PGCE are from the university of Cardiff.

- How much do you charge?

£35 is the hourly rate although 30 minutes (£17.50) is normally enough. Very young pupils may need shorter lessons and more than 30 minutes would be better for exam courses. I am happy to be flexible though ie 30 minutes one week, 45 the next.

- Where do you teach?

I live in Newport (South Wales) and teach from home. I am happy to travel to your house and could go as far as Cardiff, Cwmbran and Chepstow.

- When are you available?

Monday to Friday I would be available between 8am and 8pm; on the weekend this would be 10am to 6pm. I can teach through holiday periods also and will be flexible if possible.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

From 5 upwards. I can teach up to Grade 8, GCSE and A level.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare students for practical and theoretical exams with the ABRSM, TCL and LCM.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I can use email to communicate and to send and receive work. My laptop has a camera which could be used for linking up directly.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

If you want to learn or need help I will do my best to encourage and support you. Music is not hard to understand and I can answer your questions in a suitable way. I look forward to hearing from you!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

For twenty-five years I was a secondary school head of music which meant I taught across the 11-18 age range including GCSE and A level. At all levels the work was based around listening, composing and performing. Thirty years ago I started giving private tuition and returned to it in 2014. I am a bass baritone in the BBC National Chorus of Wales which has given me experience of performing at a professional level. I am now a peripatetic music tutor for Gwent and South Gloucestershire teaching keyboard, piano and voice.

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

I have a DBS enhanced certificate.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I started teaching piano to a year seven pupil last September, a complete beginner. Right from the off I could see she had ability so she has progressed very well and was ready to take the ABRSM prep test in May. She attended every lesson and practised a lot; once she was able enough she learned to play by ear which is something I always encourage.
