Hi, my name is Lila and I am a Music student at the University of Bristol. As well as Music, I also studied English Literature at A Level, and these are both subjects that I am extremely passionate about - and am very excited about having the opportunity to teach here on My Tutor Web!
- Strong understanding of Music Theory, from GCSE classes, A Level classes, music theory lessons at Junior Trinity conservatoire of music and University of Bristol harmony lessons. I know how difficult and overwhelming music theory can be, so I ensure tobreak it all down into easily understandable basics, which is often not done at school!
- Work experience in a primary school. I worked with the children on explaining the work in greater detail than the teacher has time to and providing one-to-one help - exactly what I will be doing here in a mytutorweb sessions. This was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and taught me the importance of many valuable skills - for example, I know how to break down concepts into easily understandable chunks, and I know that I can always remain calm and patient when teaching! :)
- Strong essay writing skills and strong knowledge of spelling and grammar.
I hope you choose to book a session with me as your tutor! Send me a message or book a meet the tutor session with me to get in touch, and I look forward to meeting you!

A strong A-Level music essay should mainly contain the identification and analysis of some of the key musical features within the given piece, and should also provide some information about the musical period in which it was written and how the period links to those features.
A helpful way to begin finding points for a music essay is to remember the mnemonic "MRS HITT". This stands for all the important musical features that you will want to address within your essay; M- melody, R - rhythm, S - structure, H- harmony, I- instrumentation, T- texture, T- tonality. Identify features of the given piece of music using these headings to guide you; for example, in Debussy's Sarabande, this might include commenting on the fact that the texture of the piece is largely homophonic, or the harmony is non-functional. To make this a coherent and flowing piece of work, you will want to expand on these basic points and give some examples of them in the work using bar numbers.
After outlining each point, providing a comment linking to the historical and musical context will help to strengthen your answer. This will require learning about the different musical periods and being able to identify the features of each. To use Debussy's Sarabande as an example, you might choose to comment on the fact that the harmony is non-functional, and then go on to say that this is characteristic of the 20th Century/Impressionist style in which Debussy was writing, as they aimed to use chords for colour and expression, rather than having a specific harmonic function, as in the Classical period.see more
