Located in London, United Kingdom - I provide various services and am the owner of Gyreentyp®, a Trademark registered under number UK00002579080.
All services are designed to meet individual, group and company needs - and include some concessions. I am available both alone or with a team. More information is below:
ABOUT - The Team
We are professionals who specialise in providing eco-friendly and ethical services that assist with improving performance via music. For example, various training, teaching, development, management, wellbeing and coaching services.
These services provide many benefits. Including their ability to:
- open and challenge us to think differently
- enrich our lives - and
- bring different cultures together
We have years of experience working in these sectors – and believe that anyone can perform well with the proper training, assistance and guidance. Just as important as the notes, is one's attitude, honesty and communication.
Unlocking one's passion is one of the first steps to becoming a professional - and maintaining professionalism. Through comprehensive expert support and training and alongside a safe environment the stage is set for success to emerge.
As each client / student is different, so is each session and service. We take time to identify the key elements that require development and support and enable each student / client to achieve their personal best.
There will be times when your instructor/coach/tutor/trainer might recommend that you also attend lessons / sessions or receive services from another member of the team. This is so your skill set can accumulate and 'comprehensive' improvement can be made.
Typically, we suggest students book one lesson/session per week, with additional lessons if there is a pressing audition, recording or upcoming performance. For music students and artists, we also encourage the inclusion of regular live performances and the practice of recording self as an integral part of their development plan.
After teaching for several years it became apparent that my expertise as a tutor, coach, producer, assistant and researcher is best applied with a team of other professionals [i.e. tutors, coaches, practitioners, counsellors, therapists, researchers, producers, engineers, writers, arrangers and musicians].
It's important to:
- discuss pedagogies and train, practice, record, rehearse, produce, arrange, create, write and/or perform together.
- share research and support each other's clients, projects, organisations and students.
I am available both alone and with support from various other professionals who perform professionally.
