MUSIC
Asked by Rafa

I love Music, like it's the only subject i enjoy in school but don't know what career to pursue using that skill. Any ideas?

The wonderful thing about the music industry is the breadth and variety of opportunities out there. It’s fantastic that you love music and want to pursue it further. The music industry encompasses all sorts of jobs, not just soloists and ensemble performers, but also artist administrators, agents, outreach work in the community, fundraising for arts organisations and many, many more. If you’re still at school and love music, I encourage you to pursue it. You don’t need to know exactly which direction you’ll take it in for now. You should always pursue your passions!

Be a songwritter+producer. Nowadays anyone can build a studio in their bedroom, so any technical jobs are becomming obsolite. the knowledge however, is growing in demand. people actually capable of writing and performing music on request are in greatest demand, if you can write music you can become a songwritter, produces, or commercial composer. Being a session musician is second best choice, but it basically boils down to being the best out of best, just to have an equal chance against other session players. Best advice I can give you is don't think of music as a career path, for you need to be able to do music in the irst place. Get a job doing something else and do music in your own time, if you get good enough at it, money will follow. Music is not as much of a career as it is passion that only lucky few manage to turn into a career.

If music is what you love, go for it. Keep practicing and get yourself involved with music placements and apprenticeships if possible. That way it will allow you to network with others in the field you enjoy! If you end up changing your mind, you can always keep it as a close hobby and when it comes to CV’s and Personal statements for university, you can put that in to show how much of a well rounded person you are! Hope this helps!

Bsc Maths and Education | 4 years experience | willing to help anyone :)

I have completed my degree in mathematics and education and have been teaching maths and English for a couple of years. I am an aspiring Secondary school maths teacher and am just about to undergo my training in the educational field. I am very eager to make learning an enjoyable experience with good results. Please feel free to get in touch if you feel your child could do with some extra help to keep on top of their school work over the summer period and during the term time. I have been teaching students between the ages of 5-18 years for the past 3-4 years as a tutor. I have mentored in a couple of secondary schools in south London and in Hastings for 2 years whilst studying at university. This has enabled me to understand how different students approach mathematics and English and adapt my teaching methods to suit each individual. I understand that often students are not keen to engage in a classroom setting and find it more comfortable to learn with less people around them and I am willing to adhere to students' needs and wants. I have experience with working with students who struggle to focus in mainstream environments (especially with students who suffer from ADHD and Autism). My aims for teaching mathematics is to make it less intimidating for students and for teaching English, to make it less of a chore to write essays and more of a way to express ideas and emotion; thus achieving good results.

Graduate from Guildhall School of Music and Drama and a fun and insightful tutor

I am a multi-skilled musician with experience dating back to my own early childhood. From learning the recorder at age 4, I have come a long way towards cementing my relationship with music. I have grade 8 qualifications in Piano, Clarinet and singing, with transferable skills on the alto saxophone. I have made studying music my life’s work, and now have a BA in music from Bristol University, and an MA in Jazz Performance (Singing) from the world-renowned Guildhall school of Music and Drama in london. I am now a professional jazz singer and perform with big bands, small jazz groups and much more, and regularly travel all over the UK to sing. Having always been in multiple music groups, I therefore have diverse ensemble skills such as orchestral playing and conducting, choral singing, choral and orchestral arranging and composing, chamber music groups, musical theatre bands and musical theatre singing ensembles, playing and singing in jazz ensembles. I believe learning music well comes from many disciplines, from developing technical instrumental skills to training the musical ear. I aim to address a fully rounded musical approach in my teaching- not just learning notes, but learning expression and delving deeper into the music theoretically and emotionally. I am experienced in a wide rane of genres and am keen to accommodate the individual student’s musical taste so as to motivate them in a genre that they love. I always check with the students what they want to achieve and find the best way to do that, while reviewing goals as I go along. I hope to be able to inspire people to follow music throughout their lives as it can become a hugely impactful skill and passion.

The best Price/Quality guitar and music lessons in London.

My main task as a high level teacher is to understand the student's short and long term goals, their skills level, strenghts and weaknesses, music taste/preferences and lead him/her to success in what she/he is doing, trasmitting passion, dedication and motivation. Started taking lessons right away with an amazing Italian teacher Francesco Lombardo and other great teachers. Lots of experience with bands and playing live with other people. Currently studying with ones of the best tutors in england: Martin gouldin, Tolis zavaliaris , Gianluca corona. I have more than 5 years of teaching experience as a private tutor. After only 1 year of playing I was already showing incredible progress by playing technically challenging songs as Technical difficulties by Paul Gilbert and so on(videos on socials). I used to and currently play from 6 to 9 hours every single day, Metronome, technique and theory lover. I have been always studying music at very high level. What I like is to give lessons about all you have to know: posture, approach, mentality, method,theory, practice, mindset,short and long term goals, covers, improvisation, rhythm and lead playing,music genres, music history,technique, how to listen to music and so on. All of this helps to open a completely brand new way of seeing music and feeling music. play every genre: rock,blues,funk,metal,pop,jazz,soul,disco and so on. My favourite artists are Robben ford, Charlie Parker, Guthrie govan,Andy timmons,Gary moore,George benson,Steve ray vaughan, John petrucci, Marco sfogli, Greg howe, Yngwie malmsteen, Albert king, Mike stern, Joe pass and more. I'm friendly, kind, super passionated, dedicated, hard worker,curious and self critical person.
