Here is a little bit about me...

“Currently a freelance educator, consultant, and peripatetic working in and around Hampshire, Myles has a passion for music education for all ages and abilities. As a first study pianist, Myles teaches piano and music theory across Hampshire, whilst working freelance as a function musician for birthdays, weddings and parties. Myles currently is Director of Music for St. James Church West End, and conducts the Woodside Singers, based in the New Forest. Before this, Myles worked as Senior Organ Scholar at Romsey Abbey, and Organist for Cantores Michaelis. Myles works with choirs but also accompanies musical exams from grade 1 to beyond Diploma standard.

 

He lived in Rennes, France from 2016-17, specialising in  translation, medieval music, and choral conducting, liaising with Loïc Georgeault, the principal organist of St. Malo’s and Rennes’ cathedrals.

All lessons are individually tailored and paced to suit the student. Specialising in classical piano performance, Myles is available to students wishing to learn for fun, and/or intending to take exams with ABRSM or Trinity.

Furthermore, with a breadth of experience in various styles of music, students wishing to learn about the art of accompaniment, ensemble performance, or jazz/pop keyboard studies are very welcome!”

I started teaching music because...

I’ve always had a passion for music education – seeing the sheer thrill that people get when they finally achieve that piece they have always wanted to play, or as they begin go understand more about the glorious inner workings of music. Going on that journey with people is an absolute privilege. I’ve been lucky to have enthusiastic and incredibly supportive tutors along my musical journey, and this inspires me to become the educator that I am today.

The music that really inspires me is...

Varied and endless; the first that come to mind are people such as Lili Boulanger, who was the first woman to win the Prix de Rome, or Einojuhaani Rautavaara for his groundbreaking compositional work (and who knew that arctic birdsong could be so wonderfully orchestrated?).

I teach the following instrument(s):

Piano, Organ, Clarinet
