Royal College of Music graduate offering lessons in piano, composition, oboe, theory and music production to all levels and abilities

Methodology

Hi!

So nice that you want to learn more about music, you have come to the right place.

I approach each student differently and will cater the lessons around what you want to learn, your goals, interests and how you work best as a person. I aim to awaken a passion for the subject through making all aspects of it fun and engaging. I believe we learn best when we are fully immersed in something, lingering in a space between being too challenged and being able to master a task. Flow, passion and curiosity will take us further as musicians and students and my role as a teacher is to create that space for you and awaken your inner artist.

I can teach you all aspects of music composition from idea generation, creativity and research to fully fledged notated works for different instruments. Within this I also teach orchestration, how to read music, music theory and various music softwares such as Sibelius and Logic Pro X. In addition to giving you the necessary tools for composing I also love to challenge you to think differently. Having the ability to think outside the box is not only useful in music but in all other areas of life as well. I teach beginners up to an advanced level.

In addition to composition I also teach piano from a beginner to intermediate level or oboe from a beginner to professional level. I can prepare you for ABRSM grade exams between grades 1-6 in piano and 1-8 in oboe. Exams not your thing? In this case I am of course also happy to explore the instrument with you and discover music for the joy of music's sake. Lesson will go in your own pace and the contents of it is open to change according to your needs.

About my qualifications and experience
- 1st class Bachelor in Music with Honours in composition from the Royal College of Music in London
- I am a member of the Swedish society of composers (STIM)
- I currently teach students between the ages of 6-50 in piano and composition around London
- I was a Britain Pears Young Artist in 2019 on their composition and performance course
- Public liability insurance
- Clean up to date DBS check available upon request
- Course in safeguarding

What do you charge?
I charge 35 Pounds per hour and if beyond a biking distance of 20 min I charge a 5 pound travel fee.

Where do you teach?
I teach in the student's house or over Skype/Zoom.

Which days are you available?
In theory most days could work, let me know your available times and I am sure we can work it out!

What does my music sound like?
Listen to my music on my soundcloud (concealed information) .

I am looking forward to taking you on a musical journey and discovering all that music has to offer!

First lesson is free to see if I am the teacher for you.

I collaborated with Zacharias W. on several composition projects. The creative exchange was not only very inspiring but also highly professional. His hunger for music, sounds and innovation is very enriching for any kind of music or music crossover projects. Occasionally, I hired Zacharias for score preparation and score engraving and was very satisfied with his work. His friendly manner and open mind made the communication very comfortable and easy-going. I will consider and recommend Zacharias also for my future projects.

From day one Zacharias has been a ray of sunshine and musical inspiration for my son. Virtual lessons have flowed really well and provided much needed inspiration and guidance during the pandemic, my son has learnt so much about composition! Zach is a natural educator.
I highly recommend this teacher!
