Trusted teacher: Composition is one of most exam boards requirements for GCSE and A-level Music. In particular, to write a piece ranging from 2 - 3 minutes in length for either solo or chamber groups of instruments. I am majoring in composition at university and I specialise in tutoring music for students taking GCSE and/or A-level, having studied and taken these A-levels through the AQA Exam specification. Composition may appear overwhelming and it is my aim that my students will be able to find the beauty in writing music and being able to cope with the stresses of writing music; by equipping them with both the necessary skills of writing music, but also how to push through the various challenges that come with it (And perhaps most importantly, how to achieve excellent marks for your coursework)! If you also want to know simply how to write a piece of classical music, write a song or even if you're just starting out in writing music, you've come to the right place! Let's get you writing some music!

Trusted teacher: I am an active musician based in Bristol where I give piano and music theory lessons. I am a positive person, always open to new experiences, with a friendly, extrovert character who is highly organized, reliable and patient. I have a great deal of experience in teaching music to both adults and children, individually and in groups. Due to the variety of ages, levels and goals I teach, I use different methods for each particular group of students: Students: With intermediate and advanced students I focus more on the mental approach of learning piano. We strongly establish goals and approaches from the start, and I also help with improving technique, music interpretation, awareness of play and music theory. I work more on the psychology of your play to prepare you for meeting greater demands. Through doing so, you learn how to stay passionate about the piano and are ready for every challenge that the future beholds. Adults: I strongly believe everyone should experience both classical music, restrained by rules and patterns, and the creative freedom of music - endless and never fully explored. Once we’ve gone through this process, together we set a course for what you like the most and want to explore further in your piano journey. My method here is based on deep exploration and making sure students experience and become aware of all music prospects. I help you to set the direction you would like to go and start preparing you for this journey. Outside of these categories I can assist in reestablishing a previous knowledge and love of piano, if you’re out of practice or your skills need polishing, I’m happy to assist a reintroduction and a revival of your passion. I focus on helping people find their confidence, passion, and joy from play. My method of teaching is based on using creativity and a unique approach to every single person. No matter your goal - if you’re looking to master a song or develop the level of your play, I am here to help you with finding your own way of improving and gaining your skills. All resources and music worksheets are prepared and provided by me for each individual student at each lesson. With younger students I often use small percussion instruments, already in my possession but this can be established within the first lesson, depending on your requirements. If the student is committed to practice independently I have a knowledge of suitable guide books to purchase.

Apart from teaching, Edward leads a Children’s Orchestra and Choir in London Fenchurch Street. He also worked voluntarily abroad in Uganda, teaching Music & Music Theory in a boarding school. Teaching Method & Style: Hi there, In general I tailor / adjust every lesson to suit individual students; their goals, targets, interests, hobbies, what they do in their daily lives and / or as a family, and in general how the pupil is in character. As well as age, younger ages will require a different approach than with older children, young adults, or adults. I try to incorporate everything relevant to pupils that could be applied in lessons to provide effective teaching, helping pupils to progress/ reach their full potential. And so there is a genuine growing joy for the student, in playing violin, practicing, being taught, and attending the weekly lessons. Adapting to each student is fundamental for their music development, health and wellbeing, self confidence and self independence in music. I prepare all my students for ABRSM / TRINITY graded exams (1-8). This consists of; Pieces, Scales, Aural Training/ Ear training and Sight-Reading. Or the alternative SUZUKI method if the pupil has already previously started it, or desire this approach. I teach music theory in the lesson that goes in part with practical, usually the last part of the lesson or when the students are tired/lack concentration. All methods/resources are used; the piano, manuscript paper, physical activities to help understanding and the ABRSM Theory app on my IPad. Whilst there is focus on grades, I tap into the interests /goals / aspirations of pupils. I regularly have students who want to learn a piece for a competition, religious pieces for church services, or just a desire to learn a piece in any genre/ style. After each lesson, I send parents/students the lesson review/ analysis & homework which they can view in detail. And I am in weekly online contact with parents/ students for any assistance. Online "check-ups" of students via video are conducted to see how weekly progress is going. I am ( what my students tell me I hope!), funny, fun, patient ,very friendly, easy going, understanding, open, and yet have the balance in being demanding, having very high expectations for every student. I try to make the students feel as comfortable as possible, to be themselves in the lesson. The majority of my lessons are taught in my music teaching studio, but I am willing to travel an appropriate distance if that is suitable for the student/parent. I have an enhanced DBS check.

I am a Trombone, Music Theory, Music Technology, Studio Techniques, and Composition tutor based in Bristol, UK, with over 10 years of experience in performance and in the music industry. I love to teach and to see students excel to the best of their standards, and to reach their personal goals. Whether you are a beginner or looking to take your practice to a higher level, I can tailor my teaching to give a personalized experience for all age groups, with a dedication to helping you succeed. I have been playing trombone since the age of 9, and have studied and performed in a range of styles, from classical and jazz to reggae, soul, funk, ska, pop, and rock. I started playing with professional orchestras while still a teenager, and have studied with Amos Miller, Paul Nieman, and Adrian France, each of whom has taught me essential practices and techniques in a variety of styles. I have performed and recorded with a number of successful groups, ensembles, and projects, which include: Hotsteppas & Dub Princess, Timbali, Eastone Rockers, Lil Maxine, Zoob & Fat Mark, Waggle Dance Records/The Co-operators, Wheel Up Records/Calculus, Gwari Music, Zoe Mazah, Rob Symmeonn, Urban Lions, Frankie, and the Heartstrings, Euphony Collective, Toothless Mary, Sussex Jazz Orchestra, and Martha Hill. I studied for a year at the Royal College of Music aged 17 and went on to study at Newcastle University, achieving 2:1 honors in 2015. In September 2021, I graduated a Master's degree in Innovation In Sound with Distinction, from DBS Sound & Music Institute, which has led me to work as a recording and live sound engineer with Eastone Recordings, a small Bristol-based studio, and production company. I have taught music theory for 7 years, helping students to reach Grade 5 and above, enabling them to progress in their musicianship, and to go on to study music at university. I believe that theory is not only an incredibly important part of learning music but can also be a fun way to engage with the different elements of music. Practical application of theory, as well as purely theoretical learning, is an essential way of solidifying the knowledge, and how I believe theory should be taught. Having studied Trombone, Piano, and Music Theory I have intimate knowledge of the ABRSM Grades and can offer tuition to help students achieve the grades they need. I also offer Music Technology, Studio Techniques, and Composition tuition which is informed by my work as a professional recording engineer, and through my research into experimental and extended studio practice. I have also gained writing and arranging credits for many of the groups listed above, composing for brass and whole ensembles. With this experience, I can offer expert assistance and guidance with students’ compositions, as well as the equipment and set up to help with this process, both at home and at the studio I work in.

I am a professional opera singer, currently studying a Master's at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Having performed numerous operas, oratorios and song recitals, I have a in depth and far reaching knowledge of the classical vocal repertoire and a good command of the musical theatre repertoire. Whether you are using it professionally or for fun, I am a strong believer that establishing excellent technique is essential to developing a voice. I work from the premise that no two voices are the same and I tailor lessons to suit my students. We will work on technique, repertoire, interpretation and, where appropriate, language skills. Together, we can work on building a healthy voice and compiling a book of repertoire to help you prepare for exams or recitals. The aim of a lesson is to achieve vocal freedom, which will allow the student to approach repertoire healthily and confidently without fear of the voice giving out. Whatever age, skill level or intention for using the voice, this will ultimately make singing more enjoyable! I have experience coaching choirs and working with young people, particularly with Cambiata North West. I have given masterclasses and singing days, most recently at Saffron Walden County High School. If you would like to organise a lesson, please do not hesitate to contact me via the details on the 'Contact' tab. During the COVID - 19 lock down and social distancing period, I will be teaching remotely via Skype and Zoom. As well as singing tuition, I am also happy to tutor music theory and academic music programmes up to and including A-Level Music. For young people, the aspects of performance and study go hand in hand and I believe it is important to offer support in all aspects of music!
