I have a 2:1 Bmus in Performance & Production from LCCM. The skills I have learned from my degree are as follows:
-I am a competent reader, able to sight read music for musical theatre, jazz and latin arrangements
-I have an in depth knowledge of a wide range of styles: Jazz, Latin, Funk, Orchestral, Rock, German oompah music!
-I gig regularly, in all of the styles above, I am often called at short notice to dep gigs when the main drummer can't make it.
-My ears have improved greatly by going to jazz jams, attending lots of gigs, seeing how the pros do it!
-My university was more like an academy, meaning it was 95% practical, in my final year I was in every day 9am-9pm, rehearsing or doing individual practice, the improvement in my playing would not have been equalled had I done a more academic degree.
-My ability to work in a team and just communicate with other people has greatly improved. In my final year I was asked by a lot of my peers to play for their recitals, I was overwhelmed with work but managed to pull through, and as a result I have created a good reputation for myself and a long list of musical contacts, something very valuable.

Suitability for tutoring
I found Olie to be enthusiastic and helpful with his students. I knew him as a teaching colleague (I teach piano peripatetically) and know he did grades with his students. I'm sure he will be a great asset to your company.
