- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach academic music, music theory for ABRSM grade system, double bass, cello, viola and violin.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I am currently studying at the Royal College of Music. I hold A Level and GCSE music and I was a student of the highly acclaimed Hampshire Specialist Music Course at Peter Symonds, Winchester before I relocated to London.
- How much do you charge?
I see your first lesson as a consultation lesson, for which the fee will be half of the usual price. If I need to travel outside of London zone 3 to get to you then I charge £5 extra to cover my travel expenses and travelling time, although this may vary depending on where you are!
- Where do you teach?
I prefer to travel to my students and will travel anywhere within London zones 1-3 although I will also teach outside this area if travelling expenses can be agreed.
- When are you available?
I am available to tutor academic and theory students on weekday evenings or Saturday morning, and I will teach instrumental students any time between 12 and 5 Monday to Saturday excluding Thursdays, although I am willing to discuss alternative times if these do not suit you.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I am happy to teach anyone from school age upwards. I hold certifications in GCSE and A Level music and I have grade 5 theory with distinction. I teach beginner to intermediate violin and viola, beginner cello and beginner to advanced double bass.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I am happy to teach theory and academic work online, through sending exercises via email if the student has a compatible notation software. I have prepared lessons which can be sent as documents to the student with assignments to be emailed back to me for marking and feedback. These are only rough guidelines as I tailor my teaching to suit the student, so please do get in touch if you'd like to discuss online learning.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have extensive experience of orchestral playing including work with members of the OAE, concert appearances with the Ernest Read Symphony Orchestra (bass), the London Charity Orchestra (bass), North London Symphony Orchestra (bass), Roehampton Chamber Orchestra (viola), Wimbledon College (cello), Hanover Square Chamber Orchestra (bass), Newbury Chamber Orchestra (principal double bass), Westminster Philharmonic (guest principal double bass), Bach Consort (bass), Bampton Classical Players (baroque bass), Finchley Chamber Orchestra (bass), Connecting Arts (bass), Holy Trinity Sloane Square (bass), Kings College London Symphony Orchestra (bass) and RCM Chamber, Symphony, Sinfonietta, Baroque, String and Baroque Chamber orchestras.
- Where and with whom did you train?
I trained academically on the HSMC Course in Winchester and am now studying on the BMus programme at the RCM, London. I currently study academic music, stylistic studies and history of music as part of the RCM programme, I study double bass with Peter Buckoke and alexander technique with Judith Kleinman.
