Personlig beskrivelse

My name is William, am just under 30 years old, and an active working freelance musician. I am now based in the Copenhagen Area. My current students would describe me as a very knowledgable, caring, and an involved teacher. I am willing to teach in any postcode in Copenhagen.

Professionally I have worked with some of the premier orchestras and chamber groups in Great Britain such as the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, the Brighton Philharmonic, The Gabrieli Consort, and His Majesties Sagbutts and Cornetts. Besides this, I have led a very active teaching life in London which I have outlined before you below.

My teaching style is very flexible, and tailored specifically to the student at hand. I have experience teaching all ages (although this would have to be in English), starting from about 5 years old for the piano and 7/8 for brass. I would be most happy to also incorporate Music Theory & Ear Training into the lessons as well as per request. I think music making should be fun, and when learned with a great technique and appreciation for what you are doing it can definitely be one of the most satisfying things you can do.

I have been teaching mainly the Trombone, Piano, and the Recorder. My style is very flexible and based on my students need.
