Notes:

I am a professional teacher and musician with 25 years experience teaching children and adults from beginners to advanced levels. I am fully qualified with a music degree and teaching credentials (Royal Academy of Music). I teach in Barnard's Green but am also available for house visits around Malvern and Worcestershire.

I am a patient, supportive and fun teacher. I am passionate about music and strive to inspire my students with a love of music at all levels. I structure my lessons to suit each student's individual needs. For those who wish to take exams, I teach ABRSM or Trinity exam syllabus. For others, I offer several different styles aside from classical including jazz, blues, folk pop and rock. I also offer all students the opportunity to perform regularly but this is not mandatory!

I recently returned to the UK from San Franciso where I worked as a musician and teacher for 24 years. During my time in the USA I immersed myself in many different
styles of music which I believe has enriched and expanded my work as a teacher. I have played or recorded with Jane Glover and Berkeley Symphony Orchestra, Michelle Shocked, David Archuleta, Orla Fallon, David Grisman and many more.

I have many years experience as a piano accompanist. Currently I work for Armonico Consort, accompanying choir creation workshops and also the AC Academy choir who recently performed at The Royal Albert Hall.

Please feel free to call if you have any questions or would like to chat further about my approach to teaching.

I have a current DBS certificate and also FBI certificate of good conduct from the USA.
