Meet Vicki Workman and the Team at Croydon Guitar Tuition
My name is Vicki Workman and I run Croydon Guitar Tuition, offering guitar lessons in Croydon. My teachers and I specialise in teaching kids & beginners and have helped many people just like you or your child realise their guitar-playing ambitions.
I began teaching guitar in October 2005, after deciding I wanted to combine my love of music with an enjoyable and rewarding career. In 2012 I moved to a full time teaching location & in 2015 took on two teachers. There are now six of us regularly running lessons & workshops, as well as putting on performances for our students in Croydon.
Previous Teaching Experience
As well as running my own teaching business, I was on the Wandsworth Schools’ Music peripatetic teaching panel, and have participated in several programmes for them, including:
Music First – A programme for early-years and nursery-age children, teachers, and parents in schools and at children’s centres, giving young children access to music-making opportunities.
Wider Opportunities – Teaching whole classes of Year 4 (and smaller groups of Year 5 and 6) children basic guitar skills.
Wandsworth Secondary Music Centre – Teaching secondary-age students guitar and bass in small groups, helping them prepare for grades and performances, and running rock band workshops.
Wandsworth was a great training ground for me, as it enabled me to participate in best practice courses alongside more general training such as safeguarding young children.
I have also been on the Croydon Music Service teaching panel, ran workshops for SCOLA, and been involved in running major projects for Richmond Childminders and Sound Connections as part of a pilot project aimed at giving more young children access to music.
