Personal Statement

Brendan came to London at the beginning of September 2013. He is a fully qualified musician, holding a Bachelors in music, and has had many years experience, not just in teaching, but in all kinds of musical activities.

Teaching Experience

Since 2007, I have been a self-employed teacher, providing lessons in traditional, electric, and classical guitar, and music theory, mainly based in my residential secondary school, Colaiste Choilm. From 2007-2008, I was employed by ‘Clive’s Easylearn Music’ – a school of rock organisation that was set up in Ballincollig and Douglas in Cork. As a tutor here, I was required to teach students how to play electric guitar, keyboards, and how to act/play in a band-performing situation. Due to dedications to college work, I did not keep this up for more than a year. In 2012, I was employed by the Kinsale Music Academy as the main classical guitar tutor. In 2012, the Kinsale Community School also employed me to teach their group adult classes. These were weekly 2-hour classes. It is my responsibility to design a solid lesson plan, that will provide my students with an understanding of the theory behind guitar technique, the practicality of chordal progressions, an inventory of chord charts, and self-confidence. Although I spend a significant amount of time lecturing the class as a whole, I also make it my responsibility to give each member of the class individual help and attention.

Teaching approach

As a music teacher, it is my responsibility to find appropriate content/music that will suit the student’s ability and understanding. I am required to have various approaches and motivational methods for various students, depending on their style/genre, confidence, interests, sex, age and maturity. I insist on finding the balance between encouraging the student’s self-satisfaction, and pushing their abilities, by providing them with exercise drills, techniques, music, and most importantly, explanations for everything we cover.
