Private Guitar Tuition for Single Students and Groups in Cardiff Bay and Cardiff Centre. £16 an hour

Methodology

I work holistically taking into account the learning style of individual students and adapt my approach to their needs. I cover a broad range of Arts and Academic criteria ranging from teaching the guitar and stylistic jam session to grade 8 in Rockschool and ABRSM in addition to IT coding and advanced computer skills. My background as a MA musician, private music teacher and as the founder of an IT business and lead technician I have been able to experience the ongoing process of learning in both industries, which I look forward to sharing. We shall work together to achieve each learners key potential in a pressure free and enjoyable environment. Should you require tuition of a related but not listed area please don't hesitate to contact me as I am sure I'll be able to signpost at the least.

Background

I have taught electric, acoustic and bass guitar to 1:1 students and groups of up to 5 in private and school settings for the last five years. My main areas range from Rockschool & ABRSM exams up to grade 8 to jam sessions and beginner, intemmediate and advanced practical tuition.

Karl's CV

Karl Stephen Smith

Personal Statement
• I recently graduated with a Master of Arts Degree from Cardiff University. My decision to study the interdisciplinary subject of music research enabled development of a vast tapestry of skills ranging from organizational and understanding to positive communication and leadership as well as punctuality when completing tasks under pressure. Whilst studying as an undergraduate and postgraduate I gained experience in a diverse number of settings ranging from diverse groups to teaching taught guitar to large groups and 1:1 students. (I hold an up to date DBS Enhanced certificate).
• To support myself as a student I have worked in the fields of IT and programming, retail and business management, which taught me the main strengths of time management, teamwork, leadership and working to tight work and research as a business manager and a Master of Arts.
