Harmonica teaching

The approach is informal and fun, lessons are recorded onto CD for students to rehearse to. Beginners are given a thorough grounding in technique, theory (where required) and presentation of live and recorded music. Jam nights are organised every month for live performances of repetoire and lesson content.

Steve Lockwood has provided private tuition and workshops for many years. During his career in education Steve Lockwood has created some tools to help students of the harmonica. The Harvest Moon interactive (sample) CDROM provides a useful resource for aspiring harmonica players, Steve and creators Aitch have kindly made it available for public use, Steve has also authored other learning aids and MIDI files.

THE SMALL PRINT

What I can offer you is the following:

• Over 25 years of experience as a musician and teacher
• Comprehensive direction and tuition regardless of your level (beginner, intermediate, advanced)
• Recordings of lessons or parts thereof to aid you in practicing between lessons
• Information and resources to support you in your learning
• A fun and rewarding experience with quick results

I am a freelance musician and teacher, therefore it is important that I manage my work effectively. To that end, I have developed a few policies to support that aim.

Please find below an outline of my policies:

1. Missed Lessons

Any lesson missed by the student shall be paid for unless otherwise agreed with the teacher. If the teacher is unavailable to give any scheduled lesson, the lesson will be carried forward to another date. If this is not possible, any fee already paid will be refunded or used to pay for a future lesson.

2. Payment

The costs of lessons are £25 per hour and £15 per half hour. Payment is accepted in cash or cheque and is preferred monthly in advance. Please make cheques payable to Steve Lockwood. Lesson fees are subject to annual review

Practice CDs are issued to students at every lesson. A fee of £10 to cover the cost of CDs is payable every six months.

Thanks again for your interest in developing yourself as a musician.

Best wishes

Steve Lockwood
