About me

About me

I am a second year Music student at the University of Manchester. My principal instrument is Trumpet, but my degree involves theory, composition and history of music, in addition to practical performance. I love talking about music and passing on my passion to other people and this is really useful when tutoring!

I have experience tutoring music theory as well as practical lessons and love to discuss the history of music and certain composers. 

I have studied German to a high level and enjoy tutoring grammar, as well as helping people practice spoken German.

The sessions 

I think it is important that the tutor and student are on the same page and so you will guide what we cover. Music and German are such broad subjects that when taught in school, bits often get missed out and basic understanding is key to these subjects. I can try to explain something in as many ways a possible and will keep trying until understanding is achieved and you can explain it back to me! 

Music and German are such interesting subjects and I think this is really important to get across and so I will try to make my sessions as interesting as possible making it a fun AND informative

What's next? 

If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Remember to tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with.

I look forward to meeting you!

Questions Shannon has answered

What is a cadence?

A cadence is a series of notes and/or chords which indicate the end of a phrase or section in a piece of music. There are many different kinds of phrases but the most common are perfect, imperfect and playgal cadences. A cadence often go to chord I - the root. A perfect cadence, for example, goes from Chord V to Chord I. A playgal cadence is Chord IV to Chord I. An imperfect cadence, as the name suggests, doesn't follow the rule and is any chord (often VI) to Chord V. This cadence doesn't have the same finished sound as the other cadences and can be tricky to hear.
