Keeping Children Safe in Music is the latest in the EduCare's series of distance learning courses on child protection. The training programme uses short films to show a variety of good and bad practice examples, which will be available to watch online. It will help anyone teaching music to children gain a better understanding of their child protection responsibilities, and avoid situations that could lead to accusations of misconduct.

I offer professional music tuition in Guitar, Drums, Bass Guitar, Piano, Music Theory and Composition. When teaching instruments I aim to give students a thorough understanding of music theory as well as the various skills relevant to their chosen instrument. I can help students to prepare for graded music exams if so desired. I have a 100% pass rate in doing so.

I have been playing, performing and composing music for over 18 years. I completed a BA in Music Performance in 2004 and have been teaching music privately and at tuition centres off and on for the past 12 years.

I have a DBS (CRB) check 2018
