Music theory teacher, cellist and Durham University music graduate, based in Wells, UK.

Methodology

Music theory is a fascinating subject! It is fun and rewarding to both learn about and teach.

I am a supportive and attentive tutor, adapting my approach for each individual student's needs.
I like to include multiple activities as part of my lesson structure, including powerpoints, exercises and quizzes, with the aim to make my lessons as interactive as possible.

I am always happy to mark and give feedback on my pupil's work, helping them to achieve their goals.

Experience

I am a music theory tutor and graduate music assistant at Wells Cathedral School, a specialist music school based in Somerset.
I coordinate and run a school music theory club, tutoring students of all ages and abiltiies (from complete beginners to grade 8). I also teach a year 8 class, and I'm available to tutor key stage three, GCSE, A level and university work online.
I hold ABRSM grade 8 theory, a diploma ATCL in cello, and grade 8 piano. I studied music at Durham University, specialising in music performance, music theory and symphonic analysis, where I graduated with a first.
