Hello, my name is

Alan Tang

In the country of

United Kingdom

Here is a little bit about me...

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.

My experiences to date have moulded my educational philosophy that everyone has a right to a comprehensive education, no matter what ethnic, cultural or socio-economic background and everyone should be given equal opportunities. I believe that all people learn best when they are inspired and motivated by passionate energised teachers, who care about the content they are delivering. My inspiration as a teacher comes from seeing people achieve at an individual level and no matter the size of the achievement, and this is recognised in their journey when learning an instrument. I am very passionate about teaching, especially my main subject music and I am very passionate about seeing all people strive for and achieve their potential.

I continue to teach in schools and have a varied experience in working at different schools. This varies from a post 16 charity to a high achieving academy to an independent school to my current school, which is more demanding school due to behaviour. I am currently Head of Music and  have held similar positions for the last 5 years. I have been involved in many aspects of the music curriculum including arranging peripatetic lessons/ rewriting curriculums/ introducing technology in curriculums/ introducing difference musical opportunities to students.

I started teaching music because...

I love seeing the spark of ‘I get it’ which then opens up their understanding of what a student has been working on

The music that really inspires me is...

I am open to all musical styles and feel that this encourages all students to be open minded.

Due to my current bands I am listening to a lot of jazz but will also return to my first love of ‘indie’ and classical music.

I teach the following instrument(s):

Piano, violin
