Jess Main: Singing Teacher
I didn’t come from a musical family, but always wanted to sing from a young age.
I was 10 when I began my musical training, and now at 25 I have completed my Masters degree in Vocal Studies (York). As a member of a female trio, I regularly perform in concerts in London and the north.
I have been coaching various ages of singers since 2009, alongside running several vocal groups. Having explored genres from opera, musicals, cabaret and classic rock, I know that my knowledge would be a useful tool to help you improve your own skills.
I do believe that everyone has the ability to improve their vocals under suitable tutelage and encouragement. Whether you want to get to grips with a particular style, work towards a grade or just simply enjoy the satisfaction of making a great noise – I can provide that help in a friendly, enthusiastic environment.

Karl Kramer: Drum Teacher. (mobile, home lessons)
I have been playing drum kit since I was 12 years old, and orchestral percussion since I was 14.
I also teach mandolin, ukelele, keyboards, bodhran, recording and composition.
Over the years I have played in many ensembles, exploring both style and creativity. Since beginning drum kit, I have played for metal bands to folk bands, and I currently play Bodhrán for my band ‘Nish As Rish’ (www.nishasrish.com).
With experience in the Isle of Man Symphony Orchestra, York Symphony Orchestra, University of York Concert Band and CHIMERA ensemble, I am also well practiced in all tuned and non-tuned percussion.
Our lessons will be focused on three fundamental areas of learning: Technique – Solid technique is key to developing into a great player. Improvisation – Rather than focusing entirely on existing repertoire, I’ll help you explore ways into creating your own music and style. Musicianship – The most important thing about being a drummer is listening to other musicians.

Mark James – Guitar Teacher
I’ve been playing guitar since I was 12 and have been playing in bands since I was 15.
I now record under the name Back Bone Shiver – a solo project.
I have been teaching for over 6 years now. mainly in the Bolton area but branching out into Leigh, Walkden, Manchester and Horwich.
I love it, as a business it keeps me off the streets but as a vocation I have loved every minute of it.
My philosophy when it comes to music has always been no boundaries and I apply that to my teaching.
If you want to play for yourself or others then I’m more than happy to help.
I teach all styles of guitar, I also play bass, banjo, ukelele and mandolin.
I also have a decent project studio recording setup which is also available to students should they need it.

If you would like to discuss booking a lesson or need advice of what to buy,
Found this site – (found? probably wasn’t lost and has been around for a while, although I am new to it)
Anyway – I’ve been visiting it as a listener to see how it works.
Listeners can operate as a ‘scout’ – you listen to songs delivered at random.
Each song has to be listened to for at least 1 min before a written review can be entered.
Reviews have to hit a certain criteria, certain musical aspects have to be addressed and finally you score the track out of ten.
To be honest the rewards aren’t going to make you rich but there is satisfaction. You’re ranked and given a star rating.
The higher your rank the more you are rewarded.
Scores are based on how correct/inline with public opinion you are.
I enjoy it – as a listener it makes me listen differently as I do as a musician – as a musician I can give pertinent advice.
The cool thing is as you score bands you can influence wether that band will get the funds they need to progress.
