Personal Message
Hi there! My name is Bob and I'm a professional Tuba/Bass Trombone Player and friendly teacher based in Birmingham/Dudley.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach all Brass Instruments, from Trumpet to Tuba up to a high level as well as Brass Chamber Music (this being a large proportion of my professional portfolio) as well as Music Theory.

I also teach basic singing to beginners and intermediate level singers who want to learn/solidify basic techniques, boost their confidence and improve general musicianship.

Musicianship skills are also offered as a separate lesson and are a great way to infuse yourself with self confidence.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a Bachelor of Music Degree with Honours in Brass Performance from Birmingham Conservatoire, having studied Tuba with Graham Sibley (CBSO), David Gordon Shute (Birmingham Royal Ballet) and Stuart Birnie (ex-CBSO), and Bass Trombone with Bob Hughes (various Orchestras) and David Vines (CBSO).
What kind of experience do you have?
I have experience teaching most brass instruments to adults and children. I also have coaching experience, taking sectionals in brass bands, as well as doing workshops in primary schools.

My playing experience ranges across the board. My professional work includes ensembles like Hosen Brass, who have featured on Channel 4's Hollyoaks, BBC Radio, Free Radio, ITV, Sky Sports and MCTV as well as performing at many prestigious venues including the Etihad Stadium to audiences of 45000 people. I also have plenty of recital and solo experience. Only last December i performed the European Premier of Barbara York's Concerto for Tuba and Orchestra.

As a student I was Principal Tuba of both City of Birmingham Symphony Youth Orchestra and the National Youth Wind Orchestra of Great Britain,

My other playing experience includes freelance Tuba and Bass Trombone with many local orchestras, brass bands, wind orchestras and brass ensembles including Decibel Contemporary Music Group, Birmingham Symphonia, Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra, Desford Colliery Band, Birmingham Symphonic Winds and Bard Brass Ensemble.

My singing experience includes various projects as a student performing works such as Handel's 'Creation' and Haydn's 'Zadok the Priest' as well as various Gilbert and Sullivan Operas. Hosen Brass also involves a lot of singing.

Do you have a personal message for students?
Music is a wonderful subject, there is nothing like being able to sit in front of hundreds of people and be able to show the world your talents and skills, the feeling of adrenaline thrill as you do what you love. In a lot of professions your acheivements are hidden or given a pat on the back or a certificate and then forgotten again. In music your acheivements are celebrated every time you perform, welcomed with applause from your audience and appreciated, no matter how big or small the amount of spectators, and there is no feeling in the world that makes you feel the same way. It does take a lot of work, but even along the way you are being applauded and appreciated, and the rewards are amazing.
