Owen - Crouch End - Music Theory

Methodology

As an active composer and performing musician myself, I always strive to ignite and encourage a deep longterm passion for music.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach the piano and music theory up to ABRSM/Trinity Grade 8 level. I am also very happy to teach composition, orchestration and other practical musical disciplines - including the use of Sibelius software. I also offer coaching for students preparing for GCSE and A level exams in music and am available as an accompanist for instrumentalists and singers: for exams, for exam and audition preparation - as well as general coaching and performance.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a PhD in Musical Composition from the Universty of Bristol (where I studied with Dr Robert Saxton and Prof. Raymond Warren) - and I also previously earned my BA and an MA in 20th Century Music at the same institution. After leaving Bristol, I received a Polish government scholarship to study in Warsaw with Prof. Włodzimierz Kotoński at Warsaw's Chopin Academy (now renamed as the Warsaw Fryderyk Chopin Musical University - 'Uniwersytet Muzyczny Fryderyka Chopina w Warszawie') .

I also studied orchestral and operatic conducting with Diego Masson and Bogusław Madey.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £40/hour, £20/half hour, £30 for 45 minutes for lessons at my home and will only consider teaching at a student's home if very close - otherwise travel-time far outweighs the length of the lesson and my timetable suffers!. I'm happy to negotiate special rates for blocks of 4 or more lessons.

- Where do you teach?

I am based just off Haslemere Road in Crouch End (close to bus stops served by the W7, 41 and 91 buses). I now only consider home visits if pupils live within close walking distance. Piano pupils should have a decent instrument at home if I am teaching there.

- When are you available?

Weekdays are generally good up to about 8.30pm, though I'm rarely free on Monday evenings. Saturday slots may also be possible.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I enjoy working with students of all ages and abilities. At present my pupils' ages range from about 5 to 65.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

ABRSM/Trinity Grade exams, GCSEs, A levels, etc...

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

Apart from my work as a composer over the last 20 years or so - including a number of high profile commissions and performances around trhe world (please see my website for further details - (concealed information) - I have been playing and teaching the piano for many years and enjoy working with students of all ages and abilities.

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

Yes, I have newly-issued DBS certificate dated 19th March 2014.

- Where and with whom did you train?

See qualifications above...

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a Member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians
