Experience / Qualifications

Educated at the London College of Music and York and Cambridge Universities, and as a performer with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra, David has had a diverse career, taking him across the world as a French horn player and conductor. After four years in Southern Africa working for the Bophuthatswana Arts Council, his subsequent time in the British army saw him live in Germany and Gibraltar, serve in the Balkans, Falkland Islands, Canada, Cyprus, Kenya, and lead soldiers on Operations in Afghanistan.

With the Household Cavalry, David led the mounted band on the Queen’s Birthday Parade in 2014, and he continued to work in the state arena as Director of Music, The Countess of Wessex’s String Orchestra, responsible for the music at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, and Holyrood Palace for Investitures, State Banquets, and other royal events. As an army reservist David is now Director of Music of The Band of The Royal Yeomanry (Inns of Court & City Yeomanry). As a civilian he is a French horn player and conductor, and a director of the management consultancy Get Psyched Up!

David has five degrees and holds Fellowships from the principal British music conservatoires. Following on from an MBA with the Open University, David’s PhD research combined his interests in music, strategy, and history, and forms the basis of this book.

David has participated in sports throughout his career, notably football and rugby, and has also enjoyed ‘adventure’ travelling – such as canoeing on the Zambezi and completing the Trans-Siberian Railway. He now loves spending his spare time on the Essex coast with his wife, Kate, their teenage twin daughters, Jane and Elizabeth, and two large labradoodles.

Vinicius
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am a PhD candidate in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for over a decade now. I believe that motivating the student and helping him to integrate the instrument into his daily routine is the most important role that a teacher can do. My methodology is the flipped-classroom and I use the Google Classroom platform: every week, I will write a study guide with details of what we discussed during class + references (videos/blogs/books). This can be used by the student to study carefully at their own pace. During our next class, we will discuss the points you had the most difficulty and advance your knowledge further. I can also record videos and write essays from scratch specifically for you, whenever the material is not available online. About me I learned to play the guitar on my own - later in life I had classical training at university (singing, piano and classical guitar). I play Fingerstyle guitar, popularized by artists like Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel and Antoine Dufour, which consists of playing melody, harmony and percussion at the same time. I have published an EP named "14th of August" with original fingerstyle compositions in 2020.

Pour être un instrument de facile apprentissage, la flûte à bec c'est une bonne opportunité pour les enfants de se débuter dans le monde de la musique.

Je propose à l'étudiant une pratique amusante et dynamique avec un enseignant diplômé et très experimenté. Pour les adultes... Si vous êtes débutant, ne vous inquiétez pas! Je peux vous enseigner comment faire les premiers sons sur votre nouveau instrument, comment souffler correctement, les doigtés, la posture, etc. et créer, pas à pas, une technique de base très solide qui vous aidera à jouer facilement n'importe ce que vous voulez au futur. Si vous êtes un étudiant avancé ou qui avez déjà les connaissances fondamentales de votre instrument, je vous propose une amélioration de la technique adaptée a chaque répertoire.
