Responsibilities: To tutor all ages in guitar, bass, piano, ukulele and music theory both on a one to one and group basis. Lessons ranged from 30-60 minutes and ran on a weekly basis. Throughout my time at PMA I taught a wide variety of genres as well as training students for Rockschool exams ranging from Debut to Grade 8 depending on what each individual wanted to gain from their lessons. I also ran multiple 12 week beginner guitar courses for groups of adults working from my adaptation of PMA’s syllabus as well as designing my own lesson plans and curriculum to meet specific one to one student needs. I also tutored two large groups of home educated children in both piano and guitar as well as music theory for both groups.
Whilst working at PMA I also ran general music lessons at Hillcrest Jubilee, an independent special needs school for ages 8-16 attached to Hillcrest Residential Children’s Homes. I taught both key stage 2 and key stage 3 classes, and provided one to one tuition. My lessons included general music theory, music appreciation and specific instrument tuition for guitar, piano, bass and drums.
