 Experienced Graduate

Summary

As a driven and reliable worker I have gained experience in many fields of work, including bar/kitchen work, insurance, marketing, event management, private tuition and as a performer (musician). The variety of work has been a result of my decisions to study, working jobs in-between and during university years. I initially completed my honours degree in sound and music production/technology in 2011, but more recently I have been completing my MMus in Performance at Goldsmiths College, University of London. 

With my experience I have developed a range of skill sets suitable for many roles and positions. Time management proven when managing insurance claims, interpersonal skills proven with care work and tuition, team work and initiative proven when planning marketing strategies, also leadership, flexibility and creativity.

Work History

Private Piano Teacher / MMus Student

Setting up my private business as a piano teacher has taken years of dedication.  This is a job which I find enjoyable and gratifying.

Using my experience in many fields of music I am able to offer students a forward thinking approach to their leaning.  Research during my masters helped me construct valuable learning techniques and strategies.

I am passionate and take pride in my teaching abilities. Musical progression, confidence building and personality development are all important factors.

At present all teaching is carried out at the students home.
