Tuition

I offer private, one-to-one tuition in the Oxford area. Whether you’re an absolute beginner, an advanced student who wants to sit your Grade 8 exam or if you just feel like you’ve reached a plateau and need some inspiration to fatten out your chops.
With a Classical Music Degree, 26 years playing and 15 years teaching experience, I cover all styles and abilities. I teach all ages, have advanced CRB disclosure and public liability insurance. 

 

This is one of my youngest students, George, demonstrating some basic grooves in a Hip Hop style - simple quaver-based grooves that use the Bass Drum, Snare Drum and Hi-Hat, with the occasional Crash Cymbal. All played in time with the backing track. Well done George!

 

Here is an example of a funk piece written by Frank Corniola entitled 'Highway to Funk', performed here by one of my longest standing students, Simon. Enjoy!

 

Here is a recital of the Trinity Grade 2 Piece 'Manny's Blues' by Pete Riley & Andy Staples. Performed by 9 year old Noah, it demonstrates a steady 12/8 Blues Feel, with some basic Rudimental Fills and some Open Hi-Hat. A strong recital, that is very well executed. Well done Noah!
