Hello and welcome to my tutor page. I am a freelance trumpet player, graduate of the Royal Northern College of Music and experienced music teacher. If your interested in Brass or theory lessons, please get in touch.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach all brass from beginner to intermediate. I specialize in trumpet and cornet and can offer lessons in many styles including baroque trumpet and jazz improvisation. I also teach music theory and to the GCSE music curricullum and can offer tuition for those wanting to study music more broadly.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a Bmus (hons) degree from the Royal Northern College of Music where I studied trumpet performance and took units in education, conducting, music in healthcare and musicology. More recently I competed a choral leadership course with Bishops Grosseteste University and Ermine Voices.
- How much do you charge?
I charge £25 for an hours tuition, £12.50 for half an hour.
- Where do you teach?
I cannot currently teach from home but can travel within Greater Manchester.
- When are you available?
My available hours vary and I do teach in the evenings. Please contact me to arrange when will suit us.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I have experience of working with very young children in a nursery as well as adult learners and most ages in between. I teach to ABRSM and Trinity grades and can provide tutoring in GCSE and A-level music exams. My aim in instrumental lessons is for students to set and reach their own goals and above all- to enjoy doing so.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I am happy to arrange online tutoring for theory lessons but would encourage all my instrumental students to see me face to face as I believe this is a far more valuable way to learn. I do offer one off consultation lessons online however if you'd like a new opinion on your playing to to see if my teaching style is for you without traveling.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have previously taught trumpet from beginner to grade 8 and music college audition level at the Sheffield Music Academy. Whilst there I also taught GCSE music as well as theory and musicianship.
At Nottingham Music Service I taught brass and singing on the In Harmony Project, involving children aged 6-16.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have a full, transferable DBS check.
- Where and with whom did you train?
I most recently studied at the Royal Northern College of Music where I had the following tutors:
John Miller- Head of Brass of RNCM, former member of Wallace Collection and Phillip Jones Brass.
Tracy Redfern- Principal Trumpet of Manchester Camerata, busy freelance trumpeter.
David Hendry- Principle trumpet of Gabrieli Consort, Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra and Les Talens Lyriques
Steve Waterman- Jazz trumpet genius.
Before this I studied with Alan Cramp, a busy freelance trumpet player and worked my way though the Leicestershire Arts ensembles.
