Hello. I am a qualified teacher. I used to teach Business Studies and Economics but have been working on my own for 5 years, singing in pubs and festvals and teaching guitar/bass. I work at our home address in Belper, near Derby, so you'ld have to come here. I use the Rockschool series of books for both bass and guitar and encourage students to read music too.
In my acoustic band I usually play the banjo or mandolin, so can teach those as well.
Bring an instrument, sing or just listen. Sessions are a good way of picking up musical tips and having a go at your first public performance.
Poet & Castle Pub
Codnor, Nr Ripley, Derbyshire, United Kingdom
Date and time:
Every Monday from 8.30 till 11pm
FREE to Pub customers
I have performed in bands for over ten years. I mainly play Celtic jigs & reels on the banjo (plus singing) and am sometimes asked to play bass with a jazz band.
You can find my dates listed on myspace. look for Hugh J Stewart
Most students benefit from half-hour lessons, hence the price would be £12 per lesson. Once a week will do: you must practice in between lessons. It would also help you to buy a suitable tutor book ( please discuss this with me first) as well as the Rock school grade book, if you want to take the exam.
