Aside from my freelance career as a Double Bassist, I very much enjoy teaching. The most important thing about teaching for me, is to make learning music as enjoyable as possible and relevant to my students' needs.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach classical Double Bass, Piano and music theory.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I am a graduate of Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance on the BMus performance course, and am currently working towards an MA at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
What kind of experience do you have?
For double bass, I have a decent orchestral background. Having had extra work with the BBCSO. And playing with BBCSSO, BBCCO, Philharmonia, WNO and RPO in Trinity Laban's side by side series.

For piano, I have accompanied colleagues of mine at college in assessments throughout my 4 years of studying there. I do enjoy solo playing and have given regular recitals on both instruments in my home town in Aberdeen.

I have also done numerous workshops in school with a few colleagues of mine introducing young children to music.

I am happy to teach around the Hillingdon area whether that be at home or at students' homes, and can travel to Harrow easily. Any further and I will have to include transport on my fee.
