Popular music degree graduate, looking to teach basic to advanced music; applied and theory.

Methodology

I can teach strong, foundational music theory (including Grades), as well as stylistic studies (teaching technique within different genres from jazz to pop to worship). I engage with my students, honing in on their individual creativity and expectations for the lessons. I try to keep it fun and stimulating as well as informative and practical. I use grade/theory books as tools to help teach my students different aspects of piano/keyboard playing, as well as direct musical examples of the theory, applied in modern and classical music.

Background

My name is Gideon Bird and I’m a 19 year old, currently in my third year of a bachelors degree in Popular music, and have been teaching private piano/keyboard lessons for 2 years with lots of positive feedback. I have played piano and keyboard for nearly 12 years and have played in numerous settings; from pubs, to churches, to festivals.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £20/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £100
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £180

Details

I am willing to travel up to 10 miles from my home. The rates do not vary depending on the level of skill my student already has achieved.
