Qualified and bubbly guitar, vocals, piano and music theory teacher with 3 years of experience one on one

Methodology

I try stick to the PPP method where there is freer practise as well as controlled practise with in every lesson. I try and let my students direct the topics and subject to suit what they enjoy and to keep them interested. I allow for time dedicated to creativity and exploration which I believe is extremely important for every student evolving and bettering in the subject they are learning about.

Background

I am a young professional with experience in the teaching and educational sector mainly music, and languages. I have a foundation phase teaching certificate, TEFL diploma and grade 4 music theory and classical piano certificates. I have been teaching on and off for the last 6 years. One on one, online and also in classroom environments.
