BA in Professional Musicianship (SongwriIng) Grade 6 bass guitar
Guitar and Uke Teacher, Sussex
I started playing the bass guitar when I was nine years old. Throughout my early musical development I played in local bands broadening many genres, playing professional gigs and working through the grades. I now have a BA in professional musicianship and a plethora of real-world experience: from touring internationally to performing live at the BBC's Maida Vale studios. I am also a Songwriter whose songs have been played on BBC Radio 1 and used for TV syncs. Currently, I am studying for a PGCE in further education to pursue a career in teaching.
My teaching method is to get students playing straight away and enjoying their instrument', whilst building a solid foundational technique. Then by applying theoretical knowledge, I enable students to form their own creative ideas, encouraging students to use their intuition, creativity and ears. I design structured practice routines to help students develop between lessons and provide sheet music and song examples based on each student's taste. I teach bass guitar, acoustic guitar, uke, music theory and songwriting.
