My teaching background covers a vast experience of teaching bass guitar at University, College and School level, as well as private individual lessons. I also teach Ukulele, as well as music theory.
I have knowledge of most styles of music, and include music theory within my lessons, relating to the instrument and the pieces being played.
My previous experience as a Rockschool examiner has given me an understanding of what is required in order to prepare a student for exams, as well as a wider knowledge of all rock/pop instruments.
I have experienced both sides of the examination procedures, having attained a grade 8 with distinction on the bass guitar.
Being a reading musician, I can teach students how to read music notation, and how to facilitate this in relation to the instrument and the pieces being learnt.
I have developed many exercises for use on the bass guitar in order to improve fingerboard knowledge, harmony, stretching, rhythm, cross-string picking, etc.
Private lessons normally last for one hour, either weekly or fortnightly.
I can accommodate students at home, although students who require me to travel to them will have an additional charge to cover fuel and travel time.
