Taylor recently joined the Coach Music Academy Team as a vocal, guitar, and piano coach. His talent doesn't stop there he is also a beautiful songwriter and soon to be music producer...
HEY TAY, WHAT HAS MADE YOU WANT TO START TEACHING MUSIC?
Music has always been a strong passion of mine and I’ve always had the urge to pass on the knowledge which I’ve learnt over years of practice and working in the Industry. Being welcomed into the team at Coach Music has given me the chance to be able do that!
YOU TEACH VOCALS, GUITAR AND PIANO? DO YOU THINK IT'S IMPORTANT FOR STUDENTS TO BE ABLE TO ACCOMPANY THEMSELVES WHILE THEY SING?
Learning an instrumental will unlock the full potential of your voice and will only add more to your performance. It allows singers to find their own style and pushes them to naturally grow as an artist. Why wouldn’t you do it!? Having the knowledge of an instrument then allows you to become a versatile, adaptive musician, start gigging and hopefully start writing and finding yourself. Plus, its fun!
YOU'RE AN AMAZING SONGWRITER, DO YOU HELP YOUR STUDENTS GET STARTED WRITING? AND WHAT IS THE PROCESS BEHIND THIS?
(awwwwww thanks) YES, I do help my students get started songwriting! Coming from a singer/songwriter perspective my strongest passion is to approach singing emotively. In class I focus on vocal technique but approach is in an emotion way, this helps my students unlock their voice and creativity. Once they are comfortable this opens up the idea of writing and it becomes easier to express yourself through song.
SOME OF OUR STUDENTS ALREADY WRITE BEAUTIFUL SONGS, WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO OFFER THEM SUPPORT WITH DEMO RECORDINGS AND GIVE THEM EXPERIENCE WORKING IN A STUDIO?
Absolutely, I’ll be taking bookings over the next month or so to start acoustic recordings for students if they wanted to do some covers or originals to start boosting their online presence. Getting good quality content is important for students to begin building their careers and fanbases.
YOU'RE A FULL TIME MUSICIAN AS WELL AS A TEACHER, WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM YOU THIS YEAR IN TERMS OF RELEASES AND SHOWS?
This year I’m super excited announce ill be releasing my debut album, I’ve teamed up with some pretty incredible people all across the Coach Music Academy team to make this happen, alongside Daniel Kelaart my producer and sound engineer.
