About Sian

I am a respected bassist with experience both in and out of the studio, as well as performing within the thriving music scene in Southampton and elsewhere! After receiving the Peter Evans prize for the highest performance mark in the final year of my degree, I am knowledgeable about a huge range of playing styles and techniques and am a friendly, enthusiastic and adaptable teacher who can provide for everyone.

I am also currently the bass teacher at River Studios in Totton and have regular students, all wanting to get different things out of their lessons which I love to provide. I feel it’s important for budding musicians to know about a range of subjects from how their equipment works all the way to individual right-hand technique.

It’s important to provide individual needs for different players as everyone will have different inspirations and motivators. Keeping people interested, enthusiastic and above all, excited about music is my aim. My passion for music is infectious and I want to provide people with the same nurturing and opportunistic environment, advice and experience I have had the pleasure of receiving.

Availability: Varied - happy to adapt and maintain flexibility. Tuesday evenings after 4 and Wednesday evenings unavailable but anything else is welcome. Am able to teach very beginners all the way to experts.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Tutoring Experience:

From a young age, I always had a passion for teaching and have taught since I was at school. Ever since graduating University and becoming the bass teacher at River Studios, I have enjoyed teaching and love to provide students with individual and personalized lessons to get the absolute best out of them.

I have some regular students of differing ability and age and adapt accordingly. I have also provided one-off sessions for people who just want a foot-up into certain projects, genres or even gig advice. As a performer, I have done a range of gigs with different groups and musicians, as well as recording a range of bass parts in studios.

I perform regularly in a couple of bands that gig locally as well as dep work such as function gigs. Recently, we supported a Mercury prize-nominated jazz group known as the Roller Trio and I also work in venues vital to the buzzing Southampton scene.
