I am an experienced teacher with over 13 years experience in teaching piano and theory.
I am used to teaching classes of 25 plus to small groups to one to one sessions.
My first main teaching role (1999-2009) was working for a charity/ education establishment. My work included teaching piano and violin to students ranging from 6 years to 75 years old. In addition to this I taught group keyboard lessons in Leicestershire. I also taught class based lessons where I specialised in composition/ Classical Music History and Popular Music History. As I progressed I became course leader for the BTEC course at Level 2 and Level 3 and specialised in both performance and technology. I continued to teach piano/violin and theory.
From 2009 to present I am at an academy in Northamptonshire. I teach up to 30 students from KS3 to KS5. I currently teach African Drumming, Samba Drumming, Performance in Guitars and Ukulele and composition using Garageband and Logic Pro. This is at KS3. At KS4 I have taught BTEC First Certificate in Music and also GCSE Music focusing more on composition and performance. At KS5 I specialise in BTEC Subsidiary Diploma but also in A level performance/ composition/ harmony and history.
I also run the orchestra, 'rock band' and an after school Music Theory class working with students from Grade 1 to Grade 6.
My piano teaching is flexible and caters for the individual. it is not a necessity for a student to take an exam and I am flexible to whatever a student would like. What is most important is that the student enjoys playing their instrument.
My theory teaching is also innovative and successful having entered over 25 students in exams from Grades 1-5 with a 95% pass rate.
I also specialise in composition/ song writing, A level, GCSE Music, BTEC Music in Performance or Technology at Level 2 or Level 3.
I am flexible, friendly and professional in my approach and my priority will always be the student's progress.
I have uploaded a few examples of my compositions and arrangement to give you an idea of my music. If you would like to hear any more of my compositions please go to:
I still perform publicly where I play the keyboards/ violin/ drums and guitar.
