About me

About me:

I have a patient and friendly temperament, and have worked with and taught music to students from primary school to university level.

Why Music?

Logic and creative problem solving are necessary for harmony and counterpoint, as well as maths and science. A good historical knowledge is necessary for any musical analysis, as it essential for unpicking the composer’s intentions, as well as critical thinking and evaluation skills. In composition and song writing, many of the finest works demonstrate the composer's understanding of the poetic structures and can draw out, for the listener, ideas and subtexts that poetic analysis would reveal. Higher level performers must understand physiology, anatomy and physical fitness to achieve the maximum potential of their playing, singing, or acting (incorrect use and understanding of such things can result in serious injuries and chronic conditions). More generally, Italian, German, and French are all modern foreign languages, essential for comprehension of most musical scores.

About my sessions

The Sessions:

The sessions will be primarily discussion based, with completed reading and homework assignments (either from myself, or from the student's classroom teacher) will be used as objects of conversation. Past paper questions will also be introduced in this semi-formal manner, with the intention that the examined material will feel like writing common sense answers to straight forward general knowledge questions. If I bring up an essential concept which is not immediately understood, then a variety of methods will be engaged to ensure total comprehension, including diagrams, analogies, and examples. Music, as with any discipline well taught, is a lot of fun.

If you are considering progressing from A-Level to degree level music, then I can offer plenty of advice and ideas regarding ideas and strategies for both personal statements, and interviews.

I do have a slightly eccentric personality, and hope that I can inspire my students to have an active interest in the subject outside of both tutorials, and the curriculum/syllabus itself. Intellectual limitations, whether they're natural, nutured, or structually imposed, exist to be overcome through curiosity and open-mindedness.

Questions Adam has answered

What are the Renaissance period stylistic features present in Weelke's, 'Sing We at Pleasure'?

This late renaissance piece has mostly syllabic text underlay, and is unaccompanied. There is a focus on light dotted rhythms and a primarily major tonality, which was a shift from the earlier 'minor' modes which dominanted the 15th century works. Moreover, the use of 5 part voices, all written for male performers is important, as higher female soprano lines were introduced much later in choral history. all of the parts are highly imitative, relating to the tenor line.
