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.

Bass Guitar Lessons - London

I got involved with music at young age in Cyprus by having lessons under the guidance of the well respected bassist Omiros Andreou (Zilla Project) and guitarist Manolis Vourakis (Blues Wire). I am now working in London as a professional musician and a freelance bassist, after graduating from the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance. Over the last years I played live in many different venues in London such as the 100 Club, the O2 Kentish Town, the Brixton Jamm and many more. By recording and playing with many artists I became able to adopt in a variety of different styles of music. Most recently I had the opportunity to work with well known music producers/engineers such as Sam Miller (Paloma Faith, Christina Aguilera, PJ Harvey, The Temperance Movement, One Direction, Razorlight, The Magic Numbers) and Steve Lyon (Depeche Mode, The Cure, Paul McCartney, George Best, Laura Pausini) and to perform next to great musicians such as the L.A. based jazz singer Tricia Tahara (Patrice Rushen, Alphonso Johnson, Lenny White, Nungu Chancler) and guitarist Tolis Zavaliaris (Pete Lockett, Laurence Cottle, Neil Angilley, Vanessa Mae). In addition, I also had the chance to open for artists such as Steve Cradock (Paul Weller, Ocean Colour Scene) and Finley Quaye. At the moment I am involved with many original and cover bands and I am playing in a lot of functions. I have also done a fair amount of studio work and I appeared in music videos as well. Most recently, my original project called ‘Rival Karma’ had the song called ‘Lies’ being used on the commercial for the worldwide campaign of Maybelline New York called ‘Rock Nudes’. I am now continuing to work in London as a professional musician and my aim is to become a versatile bassist and to gain as much experience as possible.

Enthusiastic piano, philosophy and psychology tutor

Being a keen music enthusiast and having had the opportunity to learn a variety of instruments, my role as a piano teacher is something I thoroughly enjoy. Having played the piano for 14 years (classically trained with 1 year experience in jazz) and teaching according to the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music (ABRSM) for 1 year, I adopt an idiographic teaching method in an attempt to best accommodate all learning styles for all ages. As such, the foundation of lessons can range from traditional to more contemporary and creative formats, all of which are dependent on what`s most efficient, enjoyable and pragmatic for each pupil when learning both the practical and theoretical elements of music. Taking a committed and dedicated approach, my ultimate goal is to ensure each pupil is provided with the necessary tools and knowledge-base to progress with the piano whilst simultaneously taking a growing interest and positive attitude towards learning. I also teach Philosophy and Ethics (WJEC board) as well as Psychology (AQA board), two subjects I feel passionately about and thoroughly enjoyed learning for my A-levels. Like piano, I take a very similar teaching method, adapting lesson formats to best accommodate the needs of each pupil, whilst ensuing each student is provided with the appropriate equipment allowing them to apply their knowledge to a variety of real-world scenarios and current global affairs.

Expert Guitar, Piano, Songwriting and Theory Tutor

Hi! I am a professional musician and tutor based in South East London, always excited to share my enthusiasm with students of all ages. Whether you are just beginning your musical journey; trying to fulfil virtuosic ambitions; preparing for grade exams (ABRSM, Trinity, RGT, Rock School); or eager to try your hand at songwriting/composing music of your own—I will tailor a course of tuition to help you realise your goals in a fun, relaxed environment. I have an extensive background in both classical and contemporary popular music, having studied at Trinity College of Music and the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance, and my teaching style brings together the best of both musical worlds, along with a keen sensitivity to the nuances of different genres and artists. Whatever kind of music you’re excited about being able to play, I can make it happen! Feel free to contact me with any questions you have, or to schedule a lesson. I’m happy to help you if you need assistance choosing a guitar or piano that fits your needs and budget. WHAT YOU WILL LEARN GUITAR Beginner Guitarists I believe it’s important to help beginners acquire a foundational knowledge of chord shapes and basic guitar techniques as quickly as possible so they can start playing music and learning songs immediately. By focusing on building repertoire instead of technical exercises during these early stages, students will find it easier to remain enthusiastic, and new techniques and ideas can be introduced gradually through real music. They will also learn how to practice efficiently, so they can continue to see progress in their playing even when practice time is limited. Repertoire Right from the start, students will learn to play music they are passionate about; I always help students to select pieces/songs that will be both challenging and rewarding for them. They will also be given the opportunity to receive a grounding in various popular guitar styles—blues, rock, funk, R&B, country, jazz, fusion, reggae, folk etc.—becoming confident accompanists and soloists in a wide variety of musical contexts. Fretboard Knowledge As they progress, students will learn more chord and scale patterns, enabling them to read charts and opening the door to improvising with confidence. They will also learn about the CAGED system, and how to use it to mentally organise the fretboard so as to accommodate their growing vocabulary of patterns. In addition, they will learn how to read standard notation, and how to identify intervals, chord types and progressions by ear and on paper, facilitating faster song-learning and more accurate recall as they begin to recognise familiar sounds and shapes everywhere. Guitar Technique Aside from making sure they develop clean technique when fretting notes, muting and picking strings—and that they don’t acquire any habits that might lead to long-term injury—guitar techniques will be explored extensively as the student advances. They will learn: alternate, economy and sweep picking, pickslant and string-escape strategies, crosspicking, fingerstyle guitar, hybrid picking, legato, string-bending and vibrato, as well as extended techniques such as right-hand and two-handed tapping, playing slide guitar, artificial harmonics, waterfall harmonics and more. PIANO Beginners New pianists will be introduced to their instrument and written music in an easy, step-by-step progression so they become comfortable reading note names, rhythms, accidentals, key signatures, time signatures, clefs etc. over time—while also learning to play fun tunes along the way! From the start, they will be taught how to position themselves at the piano to encourage good posture, and how to use their fingers, hands and wrists in a way that provides control over the instrument without generating unnecessary tension or risking injury over time. They will also learn how to structure their practice time, especially those preparing for grade exams where each section of the exam requires dedicated practice. Repertoire I help all my students to select pieces they will enjoy playing, while also being challenged so they continue to grow as pianists. In addition, they will be encouraged to develop fluent sight-reading skills and to explore a wide variety of musical styles. Technique and Theory Whilst technical exercises and music theory have a bit of a bad reputation as enthusiasm-killers, it doesn’t have to be that way! They form an essential part of general musicianship for pianists, and students will discover they can be fun and easy to digest when taught correctly! SONGWRITING, COMPOSITION AND THEORY Many musicians find themselves trying to write lyrics, or songs or instrumental pieces of their own after learning an instrument for some time. Very often they start to find musical ideas coming to them, but don’t know how to develop these ideas, or how to structure an entire piece of music. I believe the best way to learn the crafts of both songwriting and composition, while also nurturing individual creativity, is a combination of learning about form and compositional techniques, analysing existing masterpieces to find out what makes them so special, and good old-fashioned learning-by-doing! Some of the topics students will have the opportunity to cover: Lyric Writing Songwriting students will learn strategies for brainstorming and organising lyrical ideas; finding interesting rhymes; alternative types of rhymes; creating worksheets; the role of different song sections as it relates to lyric-writing; meter and rhyme schemes; prosody and the connection between lyrics, melodic shape and rhythm. Melody What makes a melody easily-singable; what the various types of conventional melodic figuration are (passing-tones, neighboring tones, suspensions, anticipations, eschapee, appoggiatura, cambiata); syncopation and its role in popular melody-writing; riff-writing and building solos. Harmony and Counterpoint A full course on functional harmony, modal harmony, and basic substitutions; chromaticism and chromatic techniques; species counterpoint, and prolongational techniques; four-part writing procedures; advanced countrapuntal techniques such as imitation, shifting counterpoint, canonic and fugal techniques. Form The relationship between harmony, counterpoint and form; song form; the components of songs (verse, chorus, refrain, bridge/transition, intro, outro, hook etc.); conventional theme types (periods, sentences, hybrids, ternary themes etc.) and their common deviations; large-scale forms (sonata, rondo etc.); how the needs for variety and comprehensibility work to organise all music. I’m also able to teach students about arranging, recording and production, and they will have the opportunity to record their songs in my studio if they wish.

Friendly, relaxed pro musician teaching drums & percussion

Drum teacher: Jazz, Latin, Funk, Rock, Orchestral *Teaching Skype lessons at a reduced rate!* *Lots of availability Thursdays & Fridays during the day as of March 2020 *Teaching peripatetic drums and percussion in two schools in Knightsbridge and Hackney I have a 2:1 Bmus in Performance & Production from LCCM. The skills I have learned from my degree are as follows: -I am a competent reader, able to sight read music for musical theatre, jazz and latin arrangements -I have an in depth knowledge of a wide range of styles: Jazz, Latin, Funk, Orchestral, Rock, German oompah music! -I gig regularly, in all of the styles above, I am often called at short notice to dep gigs when the main drummer can't make it. -My ears have improved greatly by going to jazz jams, attending lots of gigs, seeing how the pros do it! -My university was more like an academy, meaning it was 95% practical, in my final year I was in every day 9am-9pm, rehearsing or doing individual practice, the improvement in my playing would not have been equalled had I done a more academic degree. -My ability to work in a team and just communicate with other people has greatly improved. In my final year I was asked by a lot of my peers to play for their recitals, I was overwhelmed with work but managed to pull through, and as a result I have created a good reputation for myself and a long list of musical contacts, something very valuable. -I have grade 5 music theory, putting it to practical use by writing music for string quartet, jazz combos and salsa bands. I have also created backing tracks for my own original music. -Using electronic sounds within a normal acoustic set-up is something i do regularly now. I often have a metronome in my ears on live gigs, and have to play specific electronic sounds in time through a Roland SPDSX, this gives me the ability to replicate specific sounds from studio versions of tracks. I come from a family where music is extremely important. At school, my first band was a rock covers band where my brother played bass. We played regularly in pubs in Dorset, (you may have heard of the Teddy Rocks festival, we played in the very first festival and have played with my band Last Resort ever since). My first teacher was keen for me to learn how to read music, meaning I could play in school orchestras for musicals. I have 2 Grade 8 distinctions, one from Rockshool and one from Trinity Guildhall, I did the rockschool one first and then thought it best to add the Trinity one! The rock band i was in still plays, we have an EP online and continue to write original music. Having just finished uni, I am keen to start my musical career ASAP, I want to stay in London, because it has the best music scene in Europe!! My teaching has reading and listening at it's heart. The best thing I have done since coming to London is open my ears to all the styles I didn't like, listen over and over, until they started to grow on me! Music is a cultural and historical lesson as well, it's interesting to see where the popular styles of today came from! Reading will just make you more employable as all the session, musical theatre and holiday camp drummers will tell you! I use software such as Noteflight which allows me to playback scores, making sight reading an easier and more enjoyable process, and meaning I can share scores with students via email. Each student is also given a video recording of what we studied in the lesson, which is a very valuable resource, something they can take away from each lesson, and makes remembering what we learned much easier! I look forward to answering any queries you may have and hope to teach you very soon!
