I have always been able to teach young children and get along with them with my personable and adaptable approach to interacting with them, as well as dealing with a younger brother my whole life. However, minors up to 18 years old are welcome to be taught, I feel like I get along with all ages. Perfect for beginners and intermediate players as I understand what it means to pick up an instrument for the first time and want to play it. Young, old, retired, school leaver, or homeschooled, I will try my best to be enthusiastic and engaging to you/your behalf.
Lessons will consist of picking out music you're motivated to learn, then finding the relevant sheet music in order to pursue its completion. I will teach the basics of sheet music sight reading for those who are just picking up the instrument, but I only know tabs for guitar and ukulele. I'm also adaptable to those who don't want to learn to read music but prefer to learn by hearing etc.
I have been doing piano for 10 years, guitar for 5, and ukulele for 4, while achieving a GCSE in 2014 and my last grading in piano in 2012, I prefer to do autonomous learning so it is more enjoyable to practice and perform. I have also done singing in a choir and as a duet throughout my schooling as well as accompanying singers/plays at theatres so I have loads of experience in public performance.
I am currently 18 in my final year of A Level studies, hoping to continue higher education in the Autumn at Queen’s University Belfast in either International Studies and Politics (joint honours) or Criminology (single honours).
The Purple Parrot: August 2017 – present. I work as the only member of staff in a local craft and gift shop on one or both days of the weekend. I have also worked shifts in the café next door as a server and barista, but this is more intermittent. Duties include, but are not limited to:

liaising and negotiating with suppliers
opening and closing the shop

Advising customers on the best products for their needs e.g. illness
Giving demonstrations on products
Describing uses of the wellbeing products in order to make sure it is suitable for each person/animal
Additionally, for two weeks I worked in the solicitors firm, Clapham and Collinge, Norwich branch, in which I did a diverse, intense array of tasks in assisting their paralegal team:
Researching cases, laws, those we are prosecuting or representing
Writing to the courts, clients, LBAs on behalf of clients
Helping host a networking event
Writing/contributing to articles for their site and their Twitter Q&A.
I was lucky enough to experience a week as one of 14 pre-college students in labs of the John Innes Centre, Sainsbury Labs, Earlham Institute (Genome Research Centre) and Food Institute.
Two days were spent one-to-one with Doctors, PhD students and various specialists in microscopy and plant research, before presenting my findings and experiments to the other students, course runners and other teachers from around Norfolk.
This was a truly unique experience, which was incredibly rare, and gave me the opportunity to work with millions of pounds of equipment and meet people from around the world making imperative breakthroughs in those buildings.
I have worked for a week at Just Regional, a local newspaper, producing several articles and assisting with story research.
As a part of my enrichment programme at college I undertook 5 weeks of tutoring and reading with primary school children (KS1 mostly), helping them understand how to form and associate phonemes with the written words.
I have been a Friendly Face at Aylsham High School, an award-winning scheme to combat bullying and student isolation at school. Here, I assisted the younger years with any problems and conflict arising. I was also a prefect and school media captain in year 11.
At Sheringham Little Theatre I have been involved for many years in undertaking a variety of roles on stage and behind the scenes, and often working full-time hours in holidays. I have volunteered to work beside the theatre Director and the Head of Youth Production as an assistant director/producer on a self-devised piece with 30 young children as part of the 1940s weekend. This opportunity allowed me to exercise my ability to be personable and communicate/instruct effectively to children and teenagers. This was executed alongside organising a shareholders gathering and promotional/managerial material work.
As work experience, I have been with West End Experience for a week alongside West End stars teaching the children to sing, dance, and act, while producing an end music video summary of the week for the children.
I have achieved a black tab in mixed martial arts.
I was part of an NCS scheme (2017) and redesigned the local youth church as part of it.
I represented my primary school at 10 Downing Street when I went with a group and our local MP Norman Lamb to hand in a letter and petition for the Send my Sister to School Campaign, campaigning for education for all girls around the world.
I went to Norfolk County Council to hand in a petition and talk about safer roads and accessibility around the local primary school.
I play the piano to a high standard, reaching grade 3 in the early 2010s, but continued independently since then, and have been teaching myself guitar and ukulele for five years.
I have held a full manual UK driving license since March 2018.
Interests and Hobbies:
My main activities are music, drawing, photography, and reading. I also like reading upon politics and philosophy, which makes for interesting analysis in our current climate. I’m also an avid media consumer and researcher, helping me be more successfully self-taught and savvy when it comes to computing/media in general, as well as extremely resourceful.
I pride myself on being compassionate and always open to knowing more about the world we live in, which is imperative to the multicultural environment that Belfast has. I look forward to spending my near future there.
