Information about Dominic
I am a composer/arranger and I have performed professionally in both London and Oxford playing solo Jazz piano. For me personally music theory and playing the piano has been one of the most interesting areas of study and I am enthusiastic to pass on all that I have learnt.
As part of my musical education I have always been expected to be able to hand on any knowledge or skill I have learnt and as a result am able to adapt and evolve my teaching style to the students need. I have been teaching in London for about a year now having previously done more informal teaching in Oxford before that. I currently teach a wide age group with a diverse experience with music.
I start with the assumption that every student will have an area of music that fascinates them. Working from this I build core skills and knowledge of music and the piano to allow the student explore new genres and pieces independently. I cover traditional and non-traditional ways of learning music such as aural learning or chord sheets giving the student the ability to explore other genres and styles. I do however ensure competence in traditional methods and ensure a good level of theory knowledge.
Availability: My normal eaching days are Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. I am open to other days but would need to work it out as my schedule is quite tight. Weekends are unavailible unfourtunately.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I have enaged with music as a composer/arrannger, performer and researcher. Throughout this I have always been eager to share what I know and learn from others. I have performed and taught professionally in London for over a year having finished my degree
