Biography

Here’s a quick biography; should you wish to find out more please visit my website: I started playing guitar at the age of fourteen and had lessons during which I studied RockSchool and Classical guitar. In College, at the age of sixteen I took up singing; taking lessons and studying material out of books and online videos. The most notable resources used were the ‘Raise Your Voice’ books by Jaime Vendera and online videos from Justin Stoney of New York Vocal Coaching, as well as other various books on vocal anatomy. I have Grades, a National Diploma, a HNC and I’ve studied a BA Honours in Music at the University of Salford. I play Rock, Jazz, Classical and Pop in their broadest terms as my main styles, and have been a member of several bands playing and singing all of these various styles. I’ve performed at both serious gigs and ones for fun; whilst touring extensively around the U.K. - my own music could be said to have all these influences infused with a few more. I’m currently travelling around the North West playing acoustically, mainly singing covers with the backing of two separate agencies. I am also a professional Music Teacher, in a professional Music School and also privately with my own client-base. I specialise in guitar, voice and bass guitar. I also teach classes on music theory, songwriting and composition. I teach all the styles mentioned previously, as well as many more! My teaching work became notably successful in early 2013 when as I was asked to become a regular tutor at the best Music School in the NorthWest, Presto Music. From the above, you wouldn't be wrong in thinking that I’m a huge nerd when it comes to music…! I teach a wide range of musical styles in a professional manner, with in-depth knowledge and experience gained through years of studying, teaching and playing the music live. I teach what students want to know and grades are an option if they would like acknowledgement of their achievements. Whether you’re a complete beginner or a University-level student, I can teach anyone and everyone who wants to learn! Here is a short list of the things I typically teach throughout each instrument and style: - Techniques - Composition - Song Writing - Music Theory - Sight Reading - Arranging - Aural Perception - Style Application - Live Performance - Recording and Music Production For lessons, please contact: Email - neilpottermusic@outlook.com / musiclessonsliverpool@outlook.com Call - 07463067640.
