BA Music graduate, Enthusiastic qualified Music teacher/Musician gives Bass Guitar/Guitar lessons in London

Methodology

There's nothing quite like sharing your musical passion and seeing your pupil learn and develop as a musician. I believe it's important to be creatively involved as a student of music so I like to choose songs/ repertoire that my pupils are directly interested.

Tell me your level or your area of special musical interest and I will tailor the lessons around that. I am happy to teach to grades or not and can include theory as much or as little as my pupils want. I also like to work towards jamming sessions/ performance opportunities.

I like forward to sharing this special craft with others!

Experience

I am a fully qualified music teacher and have been teaching for 4 years. I currently teach music in 2 schools. I have a BA in Music and a PGCE. I teach a wide variety of instruments at schools including bass, guitar, singing, ukulele, recorder, piano, violin, composition and theory. I am also a working bassist/guitarist/singer/composer. I have played in a number of bands for 10 years. I am currently working on releasing music for my solo project: Indigo Veil. I am well versed in a wide variety of musical styles from baroque, rock, jazz/funk, groove, disco, hip hop and others.
