Due to the Coronavirus, all of my teaching is currently via online tutorials.
ARRANGING, ORChESTRATING & COMPOSING
These are the core of creating music for others. Without arrangers, orchestrators and composers, ensembles don't have much to play.
I offer 1 hour sessions on all aspects of arranging, orchestrating and composing for all types of ensembles, including vocal ensembles.
If you have music ideas that you'd like others to bring to life, advancing your skills in these areas will let you realise these ideas.
SIBELIUS, LOGIC & MAINSTAGE
Whilst handwritten sheet music can be a sight to behold, it's not particularly practical or efficient. Most people exploring arranging, orchestrating and/or composing will find it useful to develop their Sibelius skills at the same time.
If you're starting out with any of these programmes, or looking to become a power user, I have years of industry experience using these software packages.
PIANO, KEYBOARD & VOCAL COACHING
Beginners: 30 mins. Intermediate: 45 mins Advanced: 1 hour
Whether you're an experienced player looking to develop a certain area of your playing, an adult learning coming to this later in life, or a child starting out in musical education, learning Piano is an amazing way into the world of music, and playing Piano offers so many benefits in life. My areas of interest are pop and musical theatre playing.
In Musical Theatre, the Keyboard is often used to enhance the sound of live instruments, and with that comes a different set of playing techniques to get the best out of blending with the live sound.
Whether you're a singer in the shower, in a choir or on a West End Stage, we could all do with a bit of advice on technique and musicality to reach our full potential. As a Musical Director, I have worked with ensembles and soloists to achieve the best sound for productions and concerts. Whether you're prepping for an audition, a show or just for fun, I'd love to be able to help you develop your sound.
Grades 1-3: 30 mins Grade 4+: 45 mins Key Areas: 45 mins
A good understanding of music theory helps with playing, singing, sight reading, learning new repertoire, aural skills and in all of the other aspects of music.
If you are interested in any of the above sessions, please get in touch to discuss your requirements. Session fees will be discussed on enquiry.
