Pete Gavin is a professional bass player, composer and educator based in Stockwell, South West London. In 2008 he graduated from Leeds College of Music with a BA (Hons) in Jazz Studies.
Since 2008 Pete has taught privately for a wide range of ages and abilities, as well as maintaining a busy performance schedule across The UK and abroad. Pete’s teaching style is relaxed and positive with a focus on the enjoyment of making music. With an understanding that everybody learns differently, he strives to find the best approach for each individual student. Although Pete has template lesson plans ready to go, he prefers to work with his students to develop their own personal long-term goals such as sight reading, developing stylistic awareness or technique. This approach brings focus to the lesson, concentrating on the key areas that will benefit the students’ musical progression.
