Nye Guitar, Ukulele, Tenor Banjo, Music Theory

I started playing guitar when I was eight and have since played in bands in such diverse genres as folk, jazz, funk and rock. I run FolkFriend.co.uk which provides educational content for Celtic guitarists and have written several books on the topic. I have also published a guide to chord inversions for jazz guitarists. I began teaching guitar in 2014, set up my guitar shop, Finale Guitar, in 2019 and founded Finale Music School in 2022. My aim, as it always has been, is to provide budding musicians of all ages with the tools they need to truly understand and enjoy playing music. I want to produce players with the confidence, ear training and technical skills needed to play their favourite tunes by ear, jam along with other musicians and generally have fun playing! I do this through friendly, fun lessons covering music selected by the student while also incorporating all the necessary theory, ear training and technical exercises to give them a firm foundation to write, perform and jam from.

Lennon Drums, Percussion

I’ve been playing drums since the age of 12. Since then I have achieved grade 8 on the drum kit, earned a college degree in music, joined 3 rock bands, and am currently studying music at the University of Sheffield. I specialise in rock and pop music, however I love playing along and listening to loads of different genres! In teaching drums, I like the student to lead the direction of their learning while incorporating the fundamental skills they need to develop a well rounded skill set. This can include learning to play songs they like while also covering the 26 drum rudiments and ear training skills needed to jam along with other musicians. I’m happy to take my lessons down any route to suit the student!

Katy Violin, Singing, Tin Whistle, Guitar

I am a dynamic and enthusiastic teacher and aim to inspire confidence and nurture a real love for music in my students. With a BA (Hons) Music degree and a MA in Ethnomusicology, I am a versatile musician with a thorough grounding in a wide variety of musical styles. I love to share this passion in my teaching, and currently teach students from a wide range of backgrounds and ages. I am also a professional freelance musician, mainly within the genre of folk and traditional music. When I’m not teaching or performing, I love experimenting with new styles and learning new instruments.

Ella Piano

I am an experienced piano player and teacher from Sheffield. I have been playing piano for 12 years and I am currently studying for my grade 8.
I love every aspect of music: playing; listening, composing and teaching.
I provide custom-made piano lessons covering both practice and theory. I offer lessons for beginners and intermediate players of all ages.

 

I offer lessons to students who are aiming to sit their grades, or just wanting to learn for pleasure!
I can teach pieces from the main 4 periods of piano music: Baroque, including compositions by Bach, Handel and Vivaldi; Classical, including compositions by Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven; Romantic including compositions by Chopin, Grieg and Brahms and the Modern period, ranging from blues pieces to pop pieces. My personal music career involves getting merit-distinction level on my grades 1-7, playing in classical concerts and with several rock bands.

Tom Brass

As a semi-professional performer, I’ve played frequently throughout the whole of the UK for the past decade. I studied music at the University of Leeds with a particular focus on performance and honed my ensemble skills through participating in every band and orchestra I could sink his teeth into. I led the Jazz and Blues society in my third year and instigated the improvisation and aural skills masterclasses after realising the importance of ear training as a developing musician. I was brought up attending various folk festivals in the UK which I still continue to be involved in to this day. This allowed me to practice learning music by ear and I use these skills in my teaching and performing.

I’ve been working in schools for the past 8 years, in a variety of primary, secondary and SEN sites across the North of England. I have also worked closely with Bolton Music Hub and Tameside Music Service to deliver high quality instrumental and classroom music lessons, as well as being independently employed by individual schools for the past 6 years.

Pat Violin, Guitar

Hi, I’m Patrick! I am currently a music student at the University of Sheffield and I am excited to expand on my music career here at Finale Music School. Violin is my primary instrument, alongside piano and guitar I enjoy playing a variety of genres from Classical to Folk to Jazz. If you are looking for violin tuition I can tailor lessons to you – whether you want to read some Bach or would prefer a more improvised ear training session. I am capable of teaching guitar and piano as well to a high grade, I would be happy to pick any of these instruments up with you!

Vlad Guitar (Jazz Blues)

Ever since my dad showed me how to play the first chords on the guitar when I was 12, I’ve been constantly looking for new things to learn how to play, and eventually became increasingly passionate about jazz, and harmony. I am part of the university blues and jazz bands and notably had some great gigs with an acoustic jazz trio back in Romania. I’ve always learned by listening – listening to songs, listening to certain phrases, and melodies, and it’s exactly what I try to teach students – how to train their musical ear.

Mike Kids' Ukulele / Guitar

I have been playing guitar for around twenty five years, and am still finding new and interesting things to learn all the time. I am a lover of music from every genre, but at my heart I guess I’m a bit of a rocker.

I’m currently in my final year of a teaching degree at Sheffield Hallam, so I have a good understanding of the learning process and plenty of experience teaching children.

For some, making music might lead to a career, for others it’s a way of expressing themselves or just a great hobby. My approach is very much about learning to use your ears so that you can begin to get the music you have in your head out into the world, and have loads of fun along the way.
