About Me

Hello,

My name is Paul. I'm a musician, singer, songwriter, recording artist and private tutor with over 15 years of experience working in music. Here's a little bit about my story.

My musical journey began at the age of 7 when I started taking lessons at my hometown's classical music conservatoire. I studied Piano, Flute, Music Theory, and Vocal Training for 10 years, achieving Grade 8 qualifications. At the age of 15, I started teaching myself to play guitar and my musical direction turned towards playing popular music and becoming a professional musician and songwriter.

Moving to London after the university opened up the doors for me and gave me a lot of new opportunities to develop my music career. To this date, I have worked, performed, and recorded with many talented artists and founded my own rock band Dead Writers, which has gained interest from several magazines and radios, having recently been praised personally by Nick Cave and featured on his Bad Seed TV YouTube channel and official website. I have also written, arranged, and recorded music for short films and advertisements, and have performed at multiple live events, both as a solo artist and with Dead Writers.

My teaching experience spans 6 years, working mainly as a private tutor and also in primary and secondary schools around London. I teach Piano, Singing, Guitar, and Music Theory to both adults and children. I value the experience of teaching as a rewarding way to pass on my knowledge and I enjoy having students who want to take on the challenge of becoming better performers. I'm a flexible tutor and I prioritize the joy of playing music above all, so I like to keep a balance between providing material my students might not know while always respecting their own direction and music taste. My repertoire includes a wide variety of tunes in different genres (rock, classical, blues, folk, film music, pop, jazz) so there's always enough to choose from. I am familiar with the Grades syllabus and have enjoyed excellent results with all my students so far.

My approach to private lessons is to deliver professional, friendly, and dynamic lessons that inspire the learner to develop a passion for what they are doing whilst giving a sense of purpose. I like to call it 'building a relationship with your instrument'. I enjoy seeing my students make progress and have a wide range of resources to fulfill their expectations and help them succeed in their own terms, from useful technique tricks to all kinds of learning games for the youngest learners.

Superb. Exactly what I was after.
Paul was very friendly and professional. He is a great musician and my son really enjoyed his first session with him and I'm sure he will enjoy the subsequent sessions we have already booked.

Creative piano and music theory lessons, for all ages and abilities.
I'm a piano and music theory teacher with over thirty years experience, and a performing singer, pianist, and songwriter. My lessons are very much about what my pupils want to learn, so I'm making sure I pick the right music to make the lesson fun and rewarding. It can be Classical music, Pop, a bit of Jazz, Brazilian music, World music, or any other interesting musical language. I teach piano, theory and harmony, ear and rhythm training, general history of music, with a creative approach. My lessons can include songwriting, sing and play practice, listening/analysing practice. My aim is to provide each pupil with the specific tools they need to enjoy playing music. My background is classical piano, but as a professional musician I have approached music also from different angles. As a teacher I enjoy a creative and open approach, any interesting musical language is welcome in the lesson. I make sure I pick the right music to meet the pupil's interests and tastes, and I integrate classical music both as a precious technique tool, and as a great territory to explore.

Piano lessons - music theory and harmony - for any level
I teach for all levels, from children starting from zero to students who want to prepare certifications at the Conservatories, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I firmly believe in the importance of knowing how to read music and this is exactly what I teach first, obviously adapting the method to the age of my students: knowing how to read music is knowing one more language, which, if learned well, won’t ever be forgotten (like riding a bicycle!) and it is an invaluable wealth. Starting from that point I teach the position of the hand, the arm and the whole body at the piano, the fundamentals of the piano technique (giving great importance to the percussive movement of the finger and the distribution of weight), the understanding of musical language, the expression of the personality through the keyboard, the search for touch and knowledge of piano repertoire.

Lessons in Piano, Singing and trumpet for complete beginners to grade 8 and over
The arts are vital for development and self expression. As children we learn, play and communicate with songs and rhymes, as we get older our music taste can often help in defining and finding out more about ourselves. There are also studies showing that learning an instrument can aid communication skills, maturity and keep the brain functioning into older age. In my lessons I aim to teach instruments to anyone who is interested in exams, playing for fun or if they want to learn another skill for it’s mental benefits. I have a grade 8 in trumpet, singing and organ and i have experience playing in a variety of different ensembles and genres. I have also taught many people theory, instruments and exam techniques for music. If you’re interested in any of the instruments I offer lessons but are hesitant to start. I urge you to give it a go.

Gisel
Singing Classes with The Voice of Switzerland semi-finalist
Hi! My name is Gisel de Marco and I'm a singer, songwriter, participant and winner of several contests like "The Voice of Switzerland" (SRF), "Die grosse Entscheidungsshow" (SRF), "With you in Hollywood" (Warner Channel) and Sellaband. I've been learning, teaching and performing since 1998 and I have a wide experience training and developing my student's voices through a solid and healthy vocal technique that can be applied to all styles of music and that has the particularity of protecting the vocal chords and safely developing the vocal range. I can teach you to: - Control your breathing and improve your breathing capacity - Increase and control your vocal range - Improvise and develop your own style - Work on popular vocal techniques: vibrato, falsetto, riffs, vocal runs, head voice, mixed voice, chest voice - Discover and enhance your self expression, confidence and interpretation - Master the stage and improve your stage presence If you have any questions, please get in touch! In case you'd like to know me better, here is my story: In 2003, after winning the contest sponsored by Warner Channel's “The Bachelorette”, Gisel flew to Jamaica, where she had the opportunity to perform and she was broadcasted in all Latin America. From that point on, Gisel entered and won a singing and songwriting competition “With you in Hollywood”, a show produced by Warner Channel. Winning that contest gave her the opportunity to travel to Hollywood in 2004, where she performed in the “City of Angels.” Afterwards, in August 2004, Gisel joined a Rock & Roll band known as “The Spanglish Band” and became the lead female vocal singer. This was a great opportunity to perform in some well-known clubs, restaurants, and events. She had also performed live in a key political event that was attended by more than 5000 VIP personalities including the winner of the Nobel Prize in literature, Mario Vargas Llosa (to whom she sang the “Happy Birthday” live acapella) and a large number of Presidents from Spain, Uruguay, Mexico and several other politicians. On March 22, 2007, she joined SellaBand.com. In this fund-raising platform, she became the fastest “Final Countdown” in SellaBand’s history to that date, raising approximately $14,000 in 2 days becoming the 25th artist to achieve $50,000 for the recording of her debut album, “All The Way”. In 2010, she began an European and Asian Tour, performing in countries like the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland and Russia. In 2013, and after several pre-auditions, she was chosen to participate at the Blind Auditions of the world-wide popular singing contest “The Voice of Switzerland“. With her rendition of the Whitney Houston’s hit “I Have Nothing” she was chosen by the legendary blues artist Philipp Fankhauser to join his team of 10 singers. After winning “The Battles” and the “Sing-Off”, she went through to the final stage of the broadcast “The Live Shows”, where she became one of the best 12 singers in Switzerland. Later 2013, Gisel submitted a song for the Swiss selections of the Eurovision Song Contest. Together with her teammates of Team Philipp from the Voice of Switzerland, Ricardo Sanz and Iris Moné, she recorded the latin-pop flavor song titled “Together Forever” with the band name “3 for All”. After several internal selections and the public vote, Together Forever made it to the Swiss National Finals (“Die Grosse Entscheidungsshow”) aired on the 1st of February, 2014. The song immediately became a favorite among the Eurofans of all around the world and international polls, including the poll organized by one of the most important Swiss newspapers “20 Minuten”. On the 1st of February 2014, 3 for All performed live “Together Forever” and the cover song “All for Love” in an electrifying performance where they managed to get a standing ovation from the audience. After 50% vote of the jury and 50% of the public vote, 3 for All achieved a terrific 3rd position in the Swiss National Final.
