- Do you have a personal message for students?
I have been playing a wide range of instruments to a good standard for several years. As a result of this, I have a considerable understanding of different musical styles and can teach all of them in a way that can be understood by both children and adults. As a teacher I am very versatile and can teach composition, arranging, music theory and the practical skills of playing instruments. Because of my career as a performer, I can also teach the often forgotten about skill of how to perform.
- What kind of experience do you have?
In 2016 I composed, musically directed and conducted a musical that was performed at London's Lost Theatre. I started teaching after I graduated from Rose Bruford College three years ago. At the moment I am only teaching privately, but I have experience teaching groups in both music and drama. If you want more information about my experience, feel free to take a look at my CV which is uploaded on my profile.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Sindre is a warm and patient teacher that enables the student to feel comfortable straight away. His patience and enthusiastic attitude combined with encouragement has made my son very eager to learn piano, and he progresses very quickly. He is also very reliable and punctual. I have every confidence in his knowledge and skill and as a musician and teacher, and I would recommend him to anyone.
I have known Sindre for many years, and I was his teacher in his early years of learning the piano. Later, after he grew up, I worked with Sindre on different projects and concerts. He has won several prizes for his multi-instrumental abilities.
A lot of my younger students looked up to Sindre as he grew up, and he has been a great inspiration for them. He is extremely kind and empathic and a really fun person to be around.
Sindre is an exceptional and reliable piano teacher to our 5 year old. He is very warm and patient and makes the lessons fun and interactive. Our child always looks forward to his lessons and he always gives practical easy to follow advice on how best to improve.
