About Aaron D.

Aaron is an experienced, talented and friendly music teacher. He performs regularly in a wide variety of projects ranging from Jazz, Folk, World Music, Electronic Music and Contemporary Classical genres.

Aaron has studied music to degree level at Birmingham Conservatoire and masters level at Gothenburg University, Sweden.

In his career so far, he has played on stages at Glastonbury Festival, WOMAD festival, Celtic Connections festival, and the Royal Shakespeare Company to name but a few! He is also an award-winning composer having written and performed commissions for Birmingham’s Jazzlines and Town Hall Symphony Hall companies.

Trumpet, Cornet and Flugelhorn
Aaron teaches all abilities, from beginners to advanced students aged 7 to 70+, focusing on the music that you want to learn! For instrumental lessons, Aaron teaches a wide variety of styles and genres.

He has prepared students for ABRSM & Trinity exams, A Level & GCSE examination, auditions for University & Conservatoire courses as well as helping students with their ensemble playing, exploring improvisation and discovering new genres of music.

A typical lesson would include a brief tone-building warm up, exercises to improve your ability on the instrument and the learning of new musical pieces. Notes and comments are taken throughout the lesson and will be given to you via Music Tutors for your continued practice.

Areas we will focus on:
- Warming up
- Developing tone
- Expression
- Rhythm
- Sight reading musical notation
- Understanding musical theory
- Developing great posture and technique
- Playing the music you love!

Beginners
Ideally beginners should have their own instrument. But don’t worry, Aaron can provide a hire instrument on a temporary basis at a small additional fee or even teach you a thing or two without the trumpet! Nothing else is needed - There are no expectations of ability or prior musical knowledge. Aaron has plenty of resources to get you started on your musical journey. These will be made available through this site. As you progress, workbooks and other pieces can be explored after consideration between Aaron and the student.

Music Theory & Composition
Aaron teaches music theory at all abilities, from beginners to advanced students aged 7 to 70+ focusing on the music that you want to learn about! From first encounters with musical notation, passing graded theory examinations to studying improvisation and composing your own music.

A typical lesson will include a single topic of focus using a mixture of playing, listening and written exercises. Notes and comments are taken throughout the lesson and will be given to you via Music Tutors for your continued practice.

Areas we can focus on:
- Reading musical notation
- How rhythm works
- Understanding harmony
- Aural listening skills
- Making your own melodies

Aaron also offers tuition on a variety of software applications for scoring and producing your own music, such as MuseScore, Sibelius, Finale, Garageband, Logic & Ableton Live.

Beginners
Students wishing to develop their skills on music software should ideally own or have access to the software in question. For everything else, just bring your ears! Aaron’s approach to learning music theory and composition is to work with the music you know and love. If you already play an instrument then learning music theory on this is a great place to start. However, there are no expectations of ability or prior musical knowledge. Aaron has plenty of resources to get you started on your musical journey. These will be made available through this site. As you progress, workbooks and other pieces can be explored after consideration between Aaron and the student.
