Hi, I'm Sophie and I am a professional musician in the North West. With two Music degrees from the University of Manchester and a prestigious playing career, I can offer a wide range of expertise in my teaching. My Masters degree is in Composition, with specialisms within that of Music Theory and History. I am also a professional freelance Double Bass and Bass Guitarist, appearing regularly with orchestras and ensembles in the North, as well as over 30 musical pit-band credits and a well-respected function and wedding band.
I am a confident and experienced teacher of music, both instrumentally and theory based. I can cover all aspects of music theory up to ABRSM Grade 8 and GCSE and A-Level. I can also teach History of Music as well as aiding with listening and writing exercises to prepare for exams and coursework.
I can teach Bass Guitar and Double Bass in a variety of styles, including classical, rock, pop, jazz, blues and folk. I am happy to work through grades or through other methods of progression without exams if you prefer. I am experienced teaching children and adults of all abilities and happy to travel or teach in my home. I currently work for the Derbyshire Music Partnership and Stockport Music Service as an accredited teacher.
