Teacher's Biography:

I am a professional bassist and cellist based in London, with a wide range of experience as both a teacher and a performer. I primarily teach double bass, bass guitar, and cello at all levels and am happy teaching jazz, rock, and folk as well as taking a traditional classical approach.

Initially studying as a classical cellist, I went on to study Popular Music Performance at the ICMP where I achieved a First Class Degree as a bass guitarist. After a year out to tour around Europe with folk singer Christof Van Der Ven, I began two years of study at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama on the postgraduate jazz course.

I am a member of Indie band Mosa Wild, with whom I have toured the UK and Europe, opening for acts such as Tame Impala and Maggie Rogers. I also produce for and tour with soul singer Georgia Van Etten as well as a host of other artists.
Alongside original music, I regularly play corporate gigs at prestigious London venues such as Ronnie Scott's, The Ivy and Annabel's, and perform regularly in the West End as both a bassist and cellist.

Having taught privately and in several schools for the past 7 years, I am happy to guide students through ABRSM and Trinity exams when asked. I personally have really felt the benefits of learning to read music from a young age and am keen to pass on this skill. If this definitely isn't for you, no problem, I'm also passionate about helping students to develop good ears and improvisation skills.

1 review for Edwin Ireland


Ed was recommended to me by my jazz tutor from school. Ed has helped me navigate preparing for my conservatoire auditions and has given me the confidence to pursue my love for jazz into higher education. Ed is very kind, reliable and responsive and gives insight into life as an active musician.
