Lots of Teaching Experience: In addition to teaching instrumental lessons (all ages), I have worked as a classroom music teacher (Secondary 12-18 years - fully CRB checked) for the past three years (including running a choir, jazz band, orchestra, brass band and organising very successful concerts / shows / musicals).

Versatile Musician: able to teach popular, jazz and classical music (currently working on music as an electronic musician / most recently playing with a soul/jazz/rnb grouping).

Individualised Lessons: I tailor my lessons to meet the needs of each pupil’s musical preferences and learning style. In particular, I have lots of experience working with pupils with a variety of special educational needs.

Qualified: Including PGCE Music (Secondary) [IOE], MA Music (Goldsmiths College) [Distinction]. Piano (Grade 8), Tenor Horn (Grade 8), Music Theory (Grade 8), and Recorder (Grade 5).

In addition: I am also a skilled improviser (having played with jazz bands and pop groupings), have very strong music technology skills (Sibelius, Reason, Cubase and Logic) and have developed skills on the Bodhran, Irish Tin Whistle,and Trumpet through informal learning.

Life-Long Learning: As a teacher, I set an example of life-long learning for my students through my own enthusiasm towards learning musical skills and by not being afraid to learn alongside the pupils. Whilst teaching in schools, I have learnt skills on the Drum Kit and Guitar.I believe that music teachers should engage with the pupils as musicians and learners themselves– demonstrating to students the processes of how musicians learn and most importantly, emphasising enjoyment.
