Pete - Bourne - Accordion

Methodology

People say that I am enthusiastic about what I do - music certainly is a joy to me and I hope to share this feeling.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Violin (also known as Fiddle), Acoustic Guitar (not classical), Mandolin, Banjo (the 4 string variety, also known as Tenor or irish banjo, not the 5 string bluegrass one), Ukulele (or Ukelele if you prefer) and Melodeon (or to give it the full title the DG or DGA diatonic button accordeon).

- Tell me about your qualifications.

No formal music qualifications but see below.

- How much do you charge?

Lessons are 40 minutes long. The cost for lessons commencing before 6pm is £12. For 6pm or later starts, or weekends, the cost is £14. If you give me less than 24 hours notice of a lesson cancellation, or arrive too late to fit it in, the lesson's fee is still payable, but if I give you less than 24 hours notice of cancellation, your next lesson is free. I am often able to include some free material in this, for example the Bourne Tune Book with over 200 ceilidh tunes.

- Where do you teach?

All lessons are at my home in the PE10 area.

- When are you available?

My availability days are various times on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and also in the mornings on Saturdays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages. I have had pupils from 7 to 75. I teach most levels from absolute beginners to intermediates.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I do not offer preparation for exams or Grades.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

People say that I am enthusiastic about what I do - music certainly is a joy to me and I hope to share this feeling.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

Long experience. Over 40 years on Guitar and Mandolin, 30 years on Melodeon, 20 years on Fiddle, 10 years on Banjo & Ukulele. I have been involved in skiffle, rock music, folk song, morris, clog & ceilidh music, american cajun, american old timey, irish, traditional french, scandinavian & english music. I have run folk clubs, rock bands am currently a musician in 2 ceilidh bands and the Caller for a 3rd. I am a musician for the Whittlesea Straw Bear. I run a monthly Traditional tune session in my area as well as an online diary of musical events. I am the Musical Director of a Quire (vocals, strings & woodwind). I ran instrument, dance & the odd vocal workshops for many years at a large folk festival and for 5 years have been teaching pupils at home.

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

I have been sucessfully CRB checked.

- Where and with whom did you train?

No formal training - see above.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Affiliated to the English Folk Dance & Song Society

- Tell me about some of your current students.

A happy and diverse band of very nice people, from whom I have had some very nice comments.
