Who and how I help:
My Teaching method caters for ages 18+: One-to-One & Group Sessions. Interdisciplinary Art Forms. Developing Creative Ideas. Planning & Development. Execution. Outcomes.
Educational Music Production Projects:
School bands, The Anomalies (2004), The Anomalites (2005/6) and The Khameloids (2007) were the same concept and process of creating and developing ideas from start to finish for recording sessions. My students learnt how to incorporate diversity, invent their own unique style & identity, recognise a target market, branding and record in a studio. Later, 3 albums were made.
Diversity & Versatility:
Rock-Indie band The Quiet days (2008), Indie/Folk artist David Grothier (2009), Rap group Y.E.S (2011) and solo Rap artist Fysh’key (2012) were multidiscipline and culturally creative projects. My job was to teach interdisciplinary art forms, interpersonal skills, budgeting time & money and utilising all the benefits of teamwork. 4 Eps were produced including radio airplay.
2014, Turan Webb a rock musician did not know his vocal range and singing voice. My job was to fix and boost his confidence and sound; Two unconnected things happened – Turan signed to Rob Hallett’s Robomagic and subsequently secured a global publishing deal.
