Vera - Regent's Park - Double bass

Methodology

I love teaching. It is one of my dreams to share my knowledge and passion about the double bass.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

All levels and ages are welcome. I teach classical double bass.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a Master of Arts (DipRam) degree and an LRAM qualification both awarded by the Royal Academy of Music, with a full scholarship.

In lisbon, I took my bachelor degree in an Orchestral Academy.

- How much do you charge?

I can give a free consultation lesson.
I give 30 minutes lesson for young children for 20£.
Adults lessons can be up to 35£ an hour.

- Where do you teach?

At home or pupil's homes.

- When are you available?

Any day any time of the week according to students preferences.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages and levels are welcome.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I can prepare students to exams up to grade 8 considering the ABRSM Syllabus.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I can give online tutorial through Skype.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

In my opinion a teacher should have knowledge and understanding of the instrumental skill, should be open-minded and interested, should have communications skills, musical imagination and sensitivity and also be organized.
I'd also like to share my personality and enthusiasm about music and be inspirational. I like to keep my pupils interested, motivated and excited about playing music while making lessons fun and full of varying activities that will engage their minds.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I'm a versatile performer with a lot of experience in orchestra and chamber music. Played in the most important orchestras in Portugal as well as the European Union Youth Orchestra with world renowned conductors and where I've been Principal and Co-principal. As I am mostly an orchestral player I give a lot of importance to orchestral excerpts in my lessons and I try to incorporate orchestral repertoire as much as I can, not only giving the students the opportunity to engage in the world of symphonic music, but also showing them how the orchestra works, what are the roles of the other instruments, what is a conductor and how all the pieces of the puzzle come together to make the wonderful music that we aften see in the graet halls around London.

I have tought privatly in Portugal, both double bass and music theory. I can teach in Portuguese and English and I also understand and speak a little bit of spanish.
I have valuable leading experience which helps my teaching being more effective.

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

Currently awaiting.
I have a NSPCC Child Protection Awareness in Music certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I studied at The Royal Academy of Music with the Professors Duncan McTier and Graham Mitchel. I also took the LRAM qualification, having Rodney Stewart as my tutor.
