Jacob - Bristol$35
Trusted teacher: I am a Trombone, Music Theory, Music Technology, Studio Techniques, and Composition tutor based in Bristol, UK, with over 10 years of experience in performance and in the music industry. I love to teach and to see students excel to the best of their standards, and to reach their personal goals. Whether you are a beginner or looking to take your practice to a higher level, I can tailor my teaching to give a personalized experience for all age groups, with a dedication to helping you succeed. I have been playing trombone since the age of 9, and have studied and performed in a range of styles, from classical and jazz to reggae, soul, funk, ska, pop, and rock. I started playing with professional orchestras while still a teenager, and have studied with Amos Miller, Paul Nieman, and Adrian France, each of whom has taught me essential practices and techniques in a variety of styles. I have performed and recorded with a number of successful groups, ensembles, and projects, which include: Hotsteppas & Dub Princess, Timbali, Eastone Rockers, Lil Maxine, Zoob & Fat Mark, Waggle Dance Records/The Co-operators, Wheel Up Records/Calculus, Gwari Music, Zoe Mazah, Rob Symmeonn, Urban Lions, Frankie, and the Heartstrings, Euphony Collective, Toothless Mary, Sussex Jazz Orchestra, and Martha Hill. I studied for a year at the Royal College of Music aged 17 and went on to study at Newcastle University, achieving 2:1 honors in 2015. In September 2021, I graduated a Master's degree in Innovation In Sound with Distinction, from DBS Sound & Music Institute, which has led me to work as a recording and live sound engineer with Eastone Recordings, a small Bristol-based studio, and production company. I have taught music theory for 7 years, helping students to reach Grade 5 and above, enabling them to progress in their musicianship, and to go on to study music at university. I believe that theory is not only an incredibly important part of learning music but can also be a fun way to engage with the different elements of music. Practical application of theory, as well as purely theoretical learning, is an essential way of solidifying the knowledge, and how I believe theory should be taught. Having studied Trombone, Piano, and Music Theory I have intimate knowledge of the ABRSM Grades and can offer tuition to help students achieve the grades they need. I also offer Music Technology, Studio Techniques, and Composition tuition which is informed by my work as a professional recording engineer, and through my research into experimental and extended studio practice. I have also gained writing and arranging credits for many of the groups listed above, composing for brass and whole ensembles. With this experience, I can offer expert assistance and guidance with students’ compositions, as well as the equipment and set up to help with this process, both at home and at the studio I work in.

Trusted teacher: My name is Lyle, and I teach Trumpet, Piano, and also more general composition and music production. I specialise in contemporary styles (anything from the last 100 years), and have found many of my students typically are: - Young children, who's parents are looking for a teacher who is more interested in flexibility and helping the child become inspired and self-motivated, rather than crushed by overly academic and strict teaching. - Adults who feel like their childhood instrumental learning has left them with large gaps in their knowledge and ability, particularly when it comes to improvisation and playing music without sheet music. - Learners who are interested in developing their musicianship, and curious about, but also a bit scared by JAZZ. - Learners who are interested in recording music, and want advice on both music and professional goals and the industry. I am happy to teach grades, but have a strong teaching philosophy that focuses around more specifically tailored learning paths that focus on giving the student the tools needed to become self-sufficient playing and creating music, whether it be to relax at home, play with others, or write songs. If this sounds good, please don't hesistate to get in touch and we can discuss further! About me: I am currently completing my Level 4 Music Educator certificate from Trinity College, and have been fully teaching professionally for just over two years, since finishing my studies. As a trumpeter, I have played on European tours with various bands, played on great stages such as The Royal Festival Hall, Bath Forum, and at Glastonbury Festival. I also have my own band, LYLE!, in which I sing, play keyboards, play trumpet, and write and produce all of the music, as well as playing and performing with many different bands across the UK.

Trusted teacher: I am an active musician based in Bristol where I give piano and music theory lessons. I am a positive person, always open to new experiences, with a friendly, extrovert character who is highly organized, reliable and patient. I have a great deal of experience in teaching music to both adults and children, individually and in groups. Due to the variety of ages, levels and goals I teach, I use different methods for each particular group of students: Students: With intermediate and advanced students I focus more on the mental approach of learning piano. We strongly establish goals and approaches from the start, and I also help with improving technique, music interpretation, awareness of play and music theory. I work more on the psychology of your play to prepare you for meeting greater demands. Through doing so, you learn how to stay passionate about the piano and are ready for every challenge that the future beholds. Adults: I strongly believe everyone should experience both classical music, restrained by rules and patterns, and the creative freedom of music - endless and never fully explored. Once we’ve gone through this process, together we set a course for what you like the most and want to explore further in your piano journey. My method here is based on deep exploration and making sure students experience and become aware of all music prospects. I help you to set the direction you would like to go and start preparing you for this journey. Outside of these categories I can assist in reestablishing a previous knowledge and love of piano, if you’re out of practice or your skills need polishing, I’m happy to assist a reintroduction and a revival of your passion. I focus on helping people find their confidence, passion, and joy from play. My method of teaching is based on using creativity and a unique approach to every single person. No matter your goal - if you’re looking to master a song or develop the level of your play, I am here to help you with finding your own way of improving and gaining your skills. All resources and music worksheets are prepared and provided by me for each individual student at each lesson. With younger students I often use small percussion instruments, already in my possession but this can be established within the first lesson, depending on your requirements. If the student is committed to practice independently I have a knowledge of suitable guide books to purchase.

Friendly and individualist AQA, A Level Psychology/ general Psychology (preferably 1st years) tutoring in Bath/Exeter or online (Zoom) My approach is very individualistic- some students prefer going through exam questions and some prefer lessons on specific topics. I tend to go over the topic that the student would like to go through, make sure they fully understand and then finish with some assisted exam questions as this, in my personal experience, is what will make a difference. I’m more than happy to go over work a student has completed in ‘class’ if the understanding isn’t there, and try and make lessons as interesting and enjoyable as possible! For A level, my experience is with AQA, however, I can also tutor from other exam boards In September (2021), I will be entering the second year of my degree program (Msci Applied, Clinical, Psychology) at Exeter University. I took A-Levels in Psychology (A), Sociology (A), Music (C) and Maths in Context (B). After university, I hope to train to become a Clinical Psychologist. I have experience in tutoring (2 years) in all areas of psychology, including statistics. Moreover, tutoring experience in essay writing and short answer exam questions & am more than happy to give studying advice (note that this advice is entirely my own opinion, from my experience, therefore, it may not work for everyone). 2+ years of experience working with and supporting vulnerable adults and children. I’m friendly and reliable and understand that everyone learns in a different way so therefore adopt that when teaching. Please do get in touch if you have any further questions!
Psychology
Trusted teacher: HELPS WITH CREATIVITY The more you fill the pages of your sketchbook and flex your creativity muscles, the easier your ideas and imagination will flow. Sketchbooks are great because you're not confined to just drawing. You can use it as a place to explore different mediums, study different techniques, create color palettes, design patterns, and keep a collection of visuals that inspire you. Using a variety of mediums in a sketchbook also helps grow creativity. Even though I work on a computer all day, I still very much enjoy taking a step back from that to draw or paint, even if it's just a quick doodle. You may find that what you use as inspiration for your sketchbook and the mediums you use cross over into other work. For example, I love hand-lettering, and there are times that skill comes in handy for an editorial feature. What you explore in your sketchbook can open up new doors; it can help push you outside of the norm, where you explore new ideas and maybe even help you define your personal style. KEEPS YOUR SKILLS SHARP Keeping up a sketchbook is a great way to keep my drawing skills sharp. Maintaining that skill is important since sketching out ideas is a major part of my design process. When I get stuck on something, a pencil and a sheet of paper are the first things I reach for because it helps me unload a lot of what’s inside my brain and turn it into visuals. I can then see what ideas are working and what ideas aren't. Sketching is an important aspect of being a graphic designer, and I can see it being a very useful skill in other creative fields as well. By being a creative who practices and keeps your drawing skills sharp, you can quickly and easily sketch ideas that pop into your head and then save that sketch to refer back to when you need it. It’s also comes in handy when you’re trying to communicate ideas to others. Oftentimes I’ll be discussing artwork for an upcoming magazine issue with an editor and sketching layouts frequently comes into play. The ability to sketch has continually proven to be an important and versatile tool for me.

Trombone Instrumental Tuition (Beginner to Advanced) (Bristol)
Jacob
Jacob is great, really encouraging and supportive. I'm a complete beginner, only a few lessons in, and already feel so much more confident not only with playing but with looking after the instrument and looking forward to learning more.
