As well as being a proven aid to learning in other spheres, music is a life enriching experience capable of transcending all social and cultural barriers.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach the 'cello and piano from Beginners to Advanced. Whilst musicianship skills are generally part of regular lessons, I offer dedicated theory lessons for those wishing to sit theory exams. Aural lessons may also be booked separately .
Tell me about your qualifications.
I received my BMus (Hons) 1st class degree from Goldsmiths College, University of London.
What kind of experience do you have?
Since graduating I have taught privately on a one- to- one basis. Students have included children from the age of 4, teens and adults. Some have been complete beginners with no prior knowledge of music while others have had extensive musical experience.
How much do you charge?
My charges are £35 per hour pro rata. (For 'cellists without an instrument I have several student instruments available for a nominal rental fee).
Where do you teach?
I teach from very pleasant surroundings in Chislehurst near Bromley on the South East London/North Kent border. I am in London Zone 4 on a direct train route from central London. Lessons take place in a large, airy and light room in my home just a couple of minutes walk from Elmstead Woods railway station. I am on a main bus route, but for those coming by car private, off-road parking is available.
When are you available?
Regular lessons are offered between 2p.m. and 7.30p.m. weekdays with occasional lessons outside of those times.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach all ages (6+)and abilities, from beginners to advanced. Adult beginners and re-starters are welcome Younger children ( 4 +) are also invited, but please be aware that children of this age will need additional support at home.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
Whilst acknowledging the benefits of the graded exam system, my lessons are not exam driven. However my students do regularly prepare for ABRSM /Trinity or other exams when ready.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
No. My understanding is that Advanced CRB checks are not yet available for private teachers.
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I am a member of The Incorporated Society of Musicians (I.S.M.)
Do you have a personal message for students?
My primary goal is to nurture a life-long love & appreciation of music in people of all ages & backgrounds. I am committed to helping each individual fulfill his or her musical potential.
