Music Technology Lessons from London-based Composer/Producer with 8 years of Professional Industry Experience

Methodology

My lessons can help with all areas of Music Technology, including:

- Production / Mixing techniques
- Digital Recording
- Digital Music Notation
- Samples and samples libraries
- Plugins / Effects
- Software tips and tricks

I specialise in Logic Pro and Sibelius software, but also have practical knowledge of other programs.
I'm happy to give introductory or advanced lessons in Music Technology and I like to teach practically, working alongside the student on projects (new or pre-existing).



I am very passionate about music and have been playing, writing and studying all styles and forms of music for most of my life. I am equally passionate about sharing my professional and practical knowledge with others.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach the following areas:
- Composition / Songwriting
- Digital Music / Music Technology (specialising in using Logic Pro and Sibelius)
- Music Production
- Digital Recording / Mixing
- Musical Theory
- Orchestration / Instrumentation / Arranging
- Transcription
- Musical Analysis
- Musical Notation
- General Musicality / Ear Training

I also offer consulting services to help with existing compositions / songs, mixes or production issues.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

1st Class BA Hons with distinction from The University Of York in 2009 (referred to as a 'Starred First'), specialising in Orchestral Composition, Electro-acoustic Composition, Choral Composition and Analysis.

ABRSM Grade 8 Trumpet

- How much do you charge?

Sessions are £40 per hour and can include any combination of the areas mentioned above, including consultation for existing music. Additional charges for travel may apply, depending on location.

- Where do you teach?

I usually teach at student's homes, or somewhere convenient to them. I can also offer online, remote tuition, if preferred.

I am happy to travel to anywhere within Zones 1-4. Travel costs may apply.

- When are you available?

I have a flexible timetable and I can arrange sessions for weekdays and weekends, daytimes and evenings, availability permitting. I am happy to arrange times on a lesson-to-lesson basis, or commit to a regular time slot.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages and all levels of experience.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I am happy to offer online tutoring via Skype or Facetime. I also use TeamViewer for screen sharing during lessons.

Experience

In my work within the industry I have had to tutor many people whilst working on projects, helping to develop their practical music technology skills. I have offered private tuition for many years and also returned to my alma mater to lecture on 'Composing Music For Media'.

Significant and extensive experience composing and producing music for Film, TV and Theatre, including but not limited to: writing music for the BBC, ITV, Southwark Playhouse, Park Theatre and York Theatre Royal, working on major productions such as 'Merlin', 'Atlantis', 'The A-Word', 'The Suspicions Of Mr Whicher', 'Quirke'.
A full list of productions I have worked on can be found on my website or my IMDb page.

I have collaborated extensively with BAFTA winning composer Rob Lane as a co-writer, orchestrator and arranger on numerous projects.

Simultaneously I have offered private tuition in the areas of composition, songwriting and production and have returned to York University to lecture on 'Composing for Screen'.
