May 2020 update;
I am currently offering lessons via Skype at a reduced rate. (Skype is not ideal but it does work!). My Online rates are £25 for an hour or £15 for half an hour.
(Last summer 2019) All my pupils passed their ABRSM practical exams. Including two grade 5 violin distinctions, two grade 4 violin merits, a grade 5 violin pass and a grade 7 violin merit.
I am a Professional Jazz and Classical Pianist, Violinist and Teacher. I live in Bournemouth, Dorset. My website adress is
During the years of 1990-1998 my full time job was Sub-Principal First Violin with the Bournemouth Sinfonietta. Since 1998 I have combined a free-lance playing career with teaching.
I offer home based tutoring if you’re looking to learn to play the piano, violin/viola or study theory.
I am available as a Piano Accompanist for exams and auditions.
I teach people of all ages and abilities and also offer home visits so you can learn in the comfort of your own home. I am CRB checked and currently teach four days a week in Schools.
My qualifications include ABRSM Grade 8 Distinctions on both Piano and Violin. I hold a Professional Certificate from the Royal Academy of Music as well as L.R.A.M. and A.R.C.M Performing Diplomas on Violin and Viola. In July 2017 I was amongst the first people to be awarded the new ARSM Classical Piano Performing Diploma.
