Previous Relevant Employment

I worked in various roles for PRS for Music (formerly MCPS-PRS Alliance), the organisation responsible for administering royalties to songwriters and publishers when their works are performed or reproduced, for three and a half years. I’m very knowledgeable in this area, and it can come in useful when making students aware of potential copyright infringements or how to make sure they don’t get ripped off, for example. I stay up to speed in this industry by working on a freelance basis for a couple of small media companies in an advisory capacity.

Relevant Education and Membership

I am a member of Music Leader and the Musicians’ Union and regularly access training, networking, and mentoring opportunities through them and other organisations to ensure that I stay on top of my game. I am also in close contact with other guitar teachers locally, across the UK and around the world and share materials and best teaching practices techniques.

My qualifications include:

  • BA (Hons) in Popular Music Studies (2:1) from the University of Leeds
  • BTEC National Diploma in Performing Arts from the BRIT School in Croydon
  • 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.
