Richard - Raynes Park - Music Theory

Methodology

I aim to offer flexible tuition to the needs and interests of the student whether that is to play electric violin in a band taking examinations or giving a recital to an audience.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Violin
Viola
Music theory
Piano (beginners only)
I am also happy to provide extra tuition for GSCE and A Level Music/composition.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I am a graduate of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama having also been awarded a Concert Recital Diploma. I am now working towards a Master of Arts at the Royal Academy of Music. I have 4 years teaching experience including private and community work.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £30 per hour and £15 per half hour. For Violin, Viola, Theory, Composition and A Level/GSCE Tutoring I am happy to take groups of 4 at £20 per hour per participant.

- Where do you teach?

I preferably teach at home in Southfields where I have a specialised music room. I live 6 mins walk from Southfields tube station. I am happy to travel to pupils in the Wandsworth/SW/W London areas.

- When are you available?

I can teach most evenings and weekends. I tend to be flexible due to the nature of my course, some weeks are busier than others but I am always willing to make up time.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I am happy to help with all levels whether you're a beginner or advanced student even if you're someone who has recently rediscovered a passion for music!

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I generally prepare my students for ABRSM Exams although I am equally happy to prepare pupils for Trinity Guildhall examinations.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Music is for everyone; whether it's a way to escape or relax or a great passion, it is here to be enjoyed. If you have ever wished to learn to play you should - you may discover just what you've been missing!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I was the principal viola of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain where I worked with some of the World's leading conductors and tutors. I have performed at the Royal Albert Hall in the BBC promenade concert series twice, and I am the founder of both the Arnold Camerata and the 'Essentially English' Chamber Music Festival. I taught violin in Grangewood Independent School for 18 months and have also tutored for the London Symphony Orchestras "Discovery" scheme.

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

Yes

- Where and with whom did you train?

At Wells Cathedral Specialist Music School with Patricia Noall and then at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with Mark Knight.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

The Arnold Camerata, Royal Academy of Music, The Arion Orchestra and ISM.
