Faye Polden, Guitar Tutor
Have you or your child longed to learn to play the guitar? We at Discover and Be are excited to welcome an accomplished, talented musician, Faye Polden to our family of tutors.
Faye graduated from BIMM (Brighton Institute of Modern Music) with a First Class Honours Degree in Professional Musicianship, Guitar, and since then has been performing, and teaching, non-stop! She has played solo and in bands in many venues and at various festivals and functions cross the south of England but, alongside a busy career in performance, Faye has gained a wealth of experience in passing on her love of music to others.
As well as teaching individuals, Faye enjoys running community music workshops and teaching workshops. She was the project manager and workshop leader for a Music and Engagement Workshop for Headway (The Brain Injury Association) and has led a variety of Music Performance workshops for children. During her studies at BIMM, Faye volunteered as workshop instrument leader at The Academy of Music and Sound Summer Camp. The camp placed students into various bands whose members then took part in workshops run specifically for their instrument of choice.
Since graduation, always keen to develop and enhance her knowledge, performance and teaching techniques, Faye has embarked on various relevant training courses and personal studies within teaching and music. Leading on from this, her personal teaching philosophy is to make music education enjoyable and satisfying:
“It can be difficult to maintain engagement and interest in the early days of learning a new instrument, particularly when pupils are so young. The key is to make lessons fun and accessible!”
Faye believes in setting short and long-term goals and personalizing lessons so that the lesson content reflects her pupils’ interests. This approach nourishes the student’s interest and ensures a more engaging lesson.
Faye teaches acoustic and electric guitar, bass guitar, slide guitar and ukulele.
