Business Profile

About Us... My name is Peter Crossley and I am a music teacher based in Waterford, near Hertford, Hertfordshire, where I teach both VIOLIN & GUITAR. I teach from my studio at home or I can come to you. I currently have students based all around the Hertfordshire and the North London area. I also teach at Watton-at-Stone Primary School, Hertfordshire and the Folan School of Music in Whetstone, North London, For these positions I am annually C.R.B. (criminal record bureau) checked.

My students range from 5 to 85 years old and we enjoy weekly fun packed lessons that are tailored to suit each individual. I can work with my students towards exams or purely for fun! I also try to introduce (unless otherwise instructed) as many music genres and styles as possible including POP, ROCK, CLASSICAL, FOLK and BLUES. I also try to help if students want to develop aspects of their songwriting, singing and performing skills. I myself sing and perform original material (including guitar and fiddle).

I graduated in 1984 at Trent Polytechnic Nottingham in 3D / interior design and although I have now been teaching music for over 10 years after a successful career in design, I may still feel the need to rearrange your furniture!

More Information... Guitar Tuition
I encourage all my students to learn to read music and to grasp a basic understanding of music theory and song structure. However, the most important exercise is to get you playing your guitar as soon as possible, to enable you to decide how far and in what direction you want to utilise your new skill. Everyone has their own ideas and dreams, I am here to help you realise them.
I use a selection of books to help you get started. I have song based books that focus on strumming basic chords and rhythms to enable you to accompany yourself, classical books which focus on picking techniques and sight reading, also some blues books which form the basis of a more rock orientated direction. Some students develop their own songwriting skills along the way and I can also help you develop these.

Violin Tuition
Typically I work with my students towards achieving their grades through the ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal School of Music) and developing skills through the more traditional classical routes.
However, I am equally happy teaching jigs and reels and/or developing the skills to improvise and play within key structures, to enable the student to join in with other muscians in creating new tunes.

Songwriting & Performance
I have been writing and performing both individually and collaboratively for many years, performing both as a solo artist and within rock and folksy bands. I have supported The Blockheads and The Troggs and have had my music played on Radio 2.

I always encourage any interest students show for developing original material and I can prepare them to play it live! I can advise on getting in touch with other musicians if necessary or help them to find a small friendly audience to perform to at one of the many local open mike nights.
