I am Hugo, a postgraduate music student in London. I have over 7 years of teaching experience.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I provide clarinet, piano and theory lessons.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I am currently pursuing the Postgraduate Advanced Diploma in Clarinet Performance (PGAD) at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. Before my PGAD, I completed my Master of Music in Performance studies at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, majoring in clarinet while taking lessons on the piano. I also received the Bachelor of Arts in Music Studies with First-class Honours at the Hong Kong Baptist University.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching for more than 7 years, with students aged from 6 to 45. I taught one-to-one lessons, as well as various prestigious primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong for more than 4 years. I am also very active in organising workshops in schools and had the opportunity to work closely with musicians from the Manchester Camerata, a professional chamber orchestra based in Manchester.

Besides teaching clarinet and piano, I am also experienced in coaching music groups and orchestras. I am the clarinetist in the Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra, the Newham Philharmonic, and the principal clarinetist in the New Hong Kong Orchestra.
How much do you charge?
I charge £40 per hour including transportation fee.
Where do you teach?
I normally teach at students' homes.
When are you available?
I usually teach on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, but I can be flexible on arranging lessons time if necessary.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach students of 4 years old or above, from complete beginners to advanced level.
Clarinet - Beginners to diploma level.
Piano /Music Theory - Beginners to Grade 5.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I am happy to do different types of teaching. I usually suggest my students to take the ABRSM graded exams and ABRSM Music Medals for beginners. I also do casual-learning lessons.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes, I have an up-to-date DBS check from the Royal Northern College of Music.
Where and with whom did you train?
I am currently studying under Michael Whight, former principal clarinetist of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. I studied with John Bradbury, Nicholas Cox and Antonio Salguero - principal clarinetist of BBC Philharmonic, former principal of Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, and a current Buffet artist respectively - during my studies at the Royal Northern College of Music, and with John Schertle at The Hong Kong Baptist University. I also took lessons from and played in masterclasses by Nathan Williams, Yehuda Gilad, Timothy Lines, Thomas Verity, Matthew Hunt, Varga Gabor and Javier Llopis.
