Ryan Johnston Piano and Music Theory Teacher from Largs working towards ABRSMDip

Methodology

I am a student piano teacher currently finishing my HND in Music. I have played in a wide range of settings from rock, punk, and pop bands in college to classical, romantic, baroque, and modern solo piano. I am also looking to apply to universities for 2021/22.

My lessons are for people of all abilities on piano from beginners to grade 8 level. My teaching style is to be respectful of the student's situation and to treat each student equally. Also, to provide a safe and secure place where the student can learn as possible. I would furthermore like to pass my passion for music and knowledge of music onto my students.

Regarding lesson plans, this depends on what level the student is and what they want to achieve whether it be for fun or for grade 8 piano.
My lessons generally start with a warmup depending on their ability. For example, a 30-minute lesson for beginners would include exercises for 5 minutes. Then, a classical song for 10 minutes followed by 10 minutes of a pop song.

Experience

I have been giving lessons since 2014. Under my tuition, one pupil achieved grade 1 piano distinction and has since gone onto achieve grade 5 piano distinction.

For performance, my specialties include romantic and jazz music. I have a love for romantic music because of how much joy can be taken fromexpressing your emotions and for the jazz era because of how such warm textures and sounds can be made from the piano.

I play many instruments as I play the trombone and euphonium as well and both I have achieved with grade 5. I play in the Irvine and Dreghorn Brass Band where I play 1st trombone and play a vast range of genres from popular to classical music. Most recently we finished 4th in the Scottish Brass Band Association Championships 2nd division in March 2020.

Ryan's CV

I am a self-employed music teacher where I am teaching in my house and at people’s houses. I am teaching music theory, piano, and brass. I helped teach one pupil to achieve grade 4 tenor horn with distinction and another pupil with grade 1 piano with distinction. As part of being a music teacher, I have to have good communication skills and administration skills.

Ryan is a very patient teacher & goes at the right pace for his students. He builds student confidence & recognises each student's progress. He makes lessons fun & still gets the results that students ate capable of . We were very pleased with how he guided my daughter through her grade 1 so successfully to make her want to continue her grades on & is now Grade 6!
