As a qualified and experienced teacher I can offer a high standard of lessons and a high exam success rate for those wishing to take exams. I also teach people who would like to learn for fun and to learn the skill of picking up a piece of music and being able to read and play it as well as how to hear things and then play them by ear without any music.I keep my lessons fun and enjoyable for all ages whilst constantly improving and developing. It is really important for people to enjoy their music lesson to help their concentration, encourage them to practice and help them progress. Lessons are based at my home in the Bedminster Down/Bishopsworth Area. I will also travel to nearby areas if you would prefer to have lessons in your own home. Areas Covered include Southville, Bedminster, Totterdown, Victoria Park,Long Ashton, Knowle, Dundry, Hartcliffe, Whitchurch and more. I have a full enhanced DBS check certificate.
Piano, Cello and Music Theory Lessons: I teach the ARBSM exam syllabus for those who wish to achieve graded certificates. I teach a wide age range of people from young children to adults and from beginner to advanced level. I use modern and relaxed teaching methods focusing on establishing strong sight-reading technique and the ability to correctly interpret written music alongside developing the musical ear and musical creativity and the ability to play by ear without music also. Parents are welcome to sit in on children's lessons.
Group general music classes for children: For younger children this is a great way to introduce the concept of learning about music before they are at the stage where they could sit for half an hour in front of an instrument. I use rhythm and pitch games along with singing and a bit of movement to introduce concepts such as learning basic music notation, creating your own music, learning about musical instruments, learning musical terms and symbols. I also work to train their musical ear combined with short periods of time on the piano or cello (if you would like them to progress onto instrumental lessons) to start to gradually introduce them to the instrument.
