Teaching online

May 14, 2020

Things are well into routine now with teaching the lessons remotely during lockdown. The private lessons are continuing via Skype and Zoom and the transition has gone very smoothly. This format does certainly bring some convenience for pupils/parents and is likely to be offered as an option in the long term. Although there has been some disruption for pupils that were working towards grades, we've had the chance to vary what we've been learning and explore different songs and techniques. Some pupils will be trialling the new form of recorded exams that are being offered by LCME. Many of my pupils have made such great use of the additional free time they have under lockdown and managed an impressive amount of practise, with amazing results - songwriting, brilliant guitar solos, jazz improvisation, amazing fingerstyle playing and more! 

For the school lessons I've continued this by providing pre-recorded video lessons along with giving feedback to audio/videos of pupils' performances. It's so good to be able to keep things going as much as possible.

It's brilliant that music is able to provide an outlet, source of creativity and a distraction for people at this time. Things will be flexible going forwards and continue as best as possible under the changing circumstances. I hope you all stay safe and continue to enjoy your music!

Well done Jake and Ali!

Very well done to Jake and Ali for achieving merits in their recent acoustic guitar exams (Grade 6 and 2 respectively) - brilliant work!

Well done Cosmo!

Huge congratulations to Cosmo for achieving a distinction in his Grade 6 electric guitar exam. Brilliant work!

 

Good luck to those taking exams this week and to my pupils that will be doing some short performances at St John's CE Primary School tomorrow.

Planning ahead to 2020

November 5, 2019

The first couple of months of the academic year have gone really well, including starting to provide lessons at Hook Junior School which has been really enjoyable and the children have made a great start to their playing. A few of my private pupils have guitar exams in December and I've started to book in performances for my primary school pupils in February. There will also be the annual Guitar, Bass and Ukulele Showcase at The Tea Bar in Basingstoke on 9th February 2020 at 3pm for all of my private pupils. Lots of fun opportunities ahead!

Ready to go again!

September 3, 2019

I'm busy getting ready for the start of the new academic year by sorting instruments, grade books and new music! Looking forward to continuing private and peripatetic lessons in and around Basingstoke, including starting to provide lessons at Hook Junior School.

 

I hope everyone has had a great summer. Looking forward to getting playing again!
