Phillipa - Custom House - Singing

Methodology

I am committed to getting the best from my students and I understand that everyone is different and that lessons need to be tailored to the individual.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Beyond Grade 8 ABRSM:
Singing, (Classical, Music-Theatre and Jazz)
Flute
Music theory

Piano to grade 6 or 7 ABRSM depending on the students specific needs.

'cello to grade 5 ABRSM.

Beginners are welcome.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

PSP, two years postgraduate study in classical singing at Birmingham Conservatoire.
MA, in music specialising in vocal studies, The University of York.
BA Hons, in music, The University of York

ABRSM grade 8 in: Singing, Piano, Flute, 'Cello and Music Theory. Grade 6 in Practical Musicianship.
A level music (A).

- How much do you charge?

I charge £35 an hour for instrumental and vocal teaching
Half hour lessons are all £24 and 45 mins is £30

I teach from home which has free parking and is a ten minute walk from the tube and DLR.
I am willing to travel for an extra charge which would be agreed at the start. If there are multiple lessons at the same house then I will offer a discount.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from home in East London, Canning Town is on the jubilee line and DLR.

- When are you available?

I am available daytimes and evenings with some weekends.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach absolute beginners to advanced students and have experience teaching all ages from children to adults.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prefer to enter pupils for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) exams but I have also entered students for Trinity Guildhall examinations in the past and am willing to use different boards if necessary, particularly for musical theatre grades.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I use facetime or skype for theory coaching and aural training.

I mark theory papers online by scanning and emailing.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I enjoy teaching and will do my best to make sure you are able to achieve what you want from learning your chosen instrument. My pupils tell me I'm very friendly and approachable which I think helps to create a caring and communicative, therefore, effective learning environment.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

Over 10 years private teaching experience in all of the instruments listed above.

I was a vocal tutor for the internationally award winning 'Cantamus girls' choir' and Assistant Director of 'Cantamus Training Choir' before I moved to London.

I currently work as a piano and vocal teacher at an independent prep school and as the vocal teacher at a central London academy.

I worked for 'Nottinghamshire Arts Support Service' as a vocal tutor, choral conductor and supply piano and keyboard for over three years.
During my time with the Arts Support I worked for the Saturday '11th session' programme leading two choirs and a group theory session.
I was a workshop leader for the 'Wider Opportunities Scheme' teaching singing to KS1 and KS2 classes.

I worked at two top independent boarding schools as a voice teacher and have also taught both female and male choristers for Southwell ,Minster and Lincoln Minster.

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

I have a current DBS certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

Birmingham Conservatoire
The University of York.

I train with Louise Crane, an operatic mezzo who works regularly for Buxton opera and whilst at Birmingham I studied with Gordon Sandison who was a baritone soloist at Glyndebourne and Scottish opera. I had regular coaching from renowned coach Robin Bowman and language classes in French, Italian, German and Russian.

Prior to Birmingham I studied with Pamela Cook MBE.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

The Musicians Union

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Previous students have continued their musical training at universities across the UK and those who haven't taken music as a subject lead active lives in the extra curricular musical activities on offer. Others take part in local musical theatre groups and orchestras whilst some enjoy learning on their own. I have taken students through the performance requirements of GCSE and A level music.
