I believe that music should be enjoyable, fun and at times a challenge. It is important to allow time and space for exploration and discovery during lessons in a non-threatening environment. I use notation in my teaching where appropriate but also encourage students to work with a real focus on sound and an understanding of the music they play.
I offer tuition on all brass instruments and am able to provide lessons for complete beginners right up to those working at grade 8 and diploma level.
Music Tuition & Theory
I teach music theory and work through theoretical information with a real focus on practical application. I firmly believe that sound should come before any symbols that are used. (George Odam 'Sound before Symbol') The only real point of learning music theory is to develop an a greater understanding of music and the difference this awareness can make to performance.
