Learning an instrument needs to combine rigour with some degree of fun in order to encourage regular practice and create the sheer enjoyment of playing, whether that be solo or group playing. Over the years I have been exposed to many tutors both inspirational and dull and therefore understand what encourages students and what hinders them. Being a young adult, active in the music scene across the UK, I personally love all types of music, and enjoy seeing students progress and become more comfortable and natural with their instrument.
Jacky currently has a versatile teaching portfolio. He works in a freelance capacity for Birmingham Hippodrome, putting on workshops, projects and performances with Birmingham Schools. In addition, he is a tutor/pianist at Birmingham's School Of Theatre Excellence which prepares students for auditions to the UK's leading drama, acting and musical theatre institutions.
Furthermore, he works closely with a large Birmingham primary school in order to raise the profile of music in Key Stages 1 and 2. To that end, he has directed and produced ambitious end of term shows from musicals to nativity plays; he teaches piano lessons and contributes to the Enrichment programme by running both a choir and an after school piano club.
His teaching portfolio is completed by private tuition across a range of ages and abilities from music theory to classical and jazz piano, including undergraduate, A-Level and GCSE contexts.
