Hi. My name is Jason and I’m based in the UK near Leeds - I’m just completing a Masters Degree in Education at University College London. I am fully qualified and registered teacher and fully DBS checked. Before this, I trained at Chetham's School of Music, Royal Northern College of Music and The University of Manchester. I teach students the Piano, Music Theory, Harmony and Counterpoint to people all over the globe. Just this morning I taught pupils in Hong Kong, Ukraine, USA and Russia! I tutor complete beginners through to Diploma.
As a Pianist and Organist, I have worked for the Hallé, BBC Philharmonic, Royal Northern College of Music and The Armonico Consort to name a few. You can find out more about some of the things I have done by clicking here.
Teaching is one of the most wonderfully rewarding vocations. Seeing my pupils gain confidence, gain new skills and explore new musical cultures is at the forefront of everything I do. My teaching is interactive, tailored to you (don’t forget everyone is completely different and has differing strengths and weaknesses), engaging and fun.
Most importantly, don’t be afraid or nervous, we will be learning at your pace, incorporating your interests and I’m on hand to guide you through your musical learning journey. Really looking forward to meeting you!
