Information about Jamie Louise
Hello! I am currently a final year student at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, about to complete my Bachelor of Music (Honours) - Classical Bassoon degree course. I am very grateful to be the recipient of a full tuition fees scholarship from the Guildhall School Trust. I currently study the bassoon with Miriam Gussek (Royal Opera House), Dan Jemison (English National Opera) and Meyrick Alexander (former Philharmonia). Prior to my Guildhall studies, I attended the Music School of Douglas Academy, Milngavie, where I studied as a joint-principal study pianist and bassoonist with Rebecca Roberts, David Hubbard and Anne Scott. I was principal bassoon of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, which was a brilliant opportunity to work with some of the worlds most distinguished conductors and musicians, and play in fantastic venues, including the Royal Albert Hall as part of the televised BBC Proms series. I`m currently freelancing as a teacher and performer in London, and regularly play with various orchestras, as well as the Arabesque wind quintet. I love all sorts of music, and regularly go to classical concerts as well as jazz gigs and other weird and wonderful things!
Availability: My schedule is flexible - weekdays and weekends, daytime and evenings are all possibilties.
Willing to travel: 20 miles
Experience: I am currently a bassoon and piano teacher with the London Music Centre, and also teach bassoon at Dame Alice Owen`s School in Potters Bar. As well as one-to-one tuition, I have also delivered creative music-making workshops to young children in primary schools. I have recently worked alongside players of the London Symphony Orchestra in coaching the young players from the LSO On Track scheme, and will be visiting the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland as Guest Mentor of the bassoon section in July. I also look forward to working with NYOS Camerata later this year in a project with the young people particpating in the Sistema Scotland programme
