I am passionate about passing on my enthusiasm for music, through teaching piano in a fun and engaging way. My priority is for my pupils to enjoy playing and to look forward to sitting at a piano/keyboard, by encouraging them to develop their own interests and styles, rather than directing them down one path. Pupils (adults or children) decide they want to learn the piano because they have been inspired, which means they have an idea of what they want to do with it (whether that be a particular style/artist/or type of playing eg. solo piano, accompanist, in a band etc.). In my lessons, I want to guide the pupils along their own chosen route, meaning I will tailor and adapt my approach accordingly. Whether someone wants to learn for fun, refresh their memory, or have an aim to enter exams/learn music theory, I am here to take you through this process.


I have a wide range of accompanying experience from playing for a range of solo singers and instrumentalists for auditions and masterclasses, acting as a rehearsal pianist for an operetta, accompanying primary school choirs, a youth theatre group, community choirs, accompanying various artists for concerts, playing for churches services, recitals, keys in a rock band. These have been in various settings including rehearsal/performance, through a wide range of styles including jazz, popular, rock, classical, musical theatre etc.
