I like to get to know my students and understand what they wish to get out of playing the guitar as an instrument. It is important to understand their own goals so that you can motivate them to get there.
I have been giving lessons in various different musical instruments for several years now. I have been playing the guitar for 10 years and have been performing as a solo musician for about 5 years. I am proficient in many different styles of guitar and have had experience playing in many different groups.
For the past 4 years I have been earning qualifications in popular music. I have just finished my final year, earning a 2:1 at honours degree level. The majority of the work for the course was self-directed. In my final year I wrote, performed, produced and released an entire EP named ‘Just Above Heaven’ as part of my Creative Honours Project, as well as writing a research paper based in the field of production. University taught me many different skills but most importantly of all, due to the amount of self-directed work done, it taught me how to manage myself and showed me the reward that can come with hard work.
WORK AS A PERFORMER
For many years now I have been working as a performing musician in various different groups and venues. I was part of a ceilidh band as a drummer for several years, performing all across Aberdeenshire. I hosted my own open mic event in ‘The Venue’ in Perth every Thursday for almost a year and have been performing as a solo act in many different venues for many years, as well as performing in many other bands and groups. Performing as a musician can help you develop many different skills, including team working and working under pressure, but being involved in the business aspect of music has also helped me further develop many skills, such as my organizational and planning skills which have been developed by helping to organize events and promotions.
For a year I taught two students the guitar and have also had 8 weeks of experience teaching an NC drum class. This experience helped to develop my interpersonal skills and communication skills. This also helped improve my organizational skills as I had to plan out the lesson I was going to teach and ensure that I had enough teaching material for my lessons.
