***Updated on 30 June 2020***

I am delighted to announce that REAL LESSONS WILL RESUME IN MID-JULY in my music space, specially reconfigured to counter the risk of infection, featuring.....

1) room division by 2.8m/6ft 8in tall clear-screening
2) separate access for teacher and pupil/parent
3) high quality air purification and personal/surface hygiene

I have decided NOT to offer virtual lessons using conferencing technology (Skype/Zoom), having observed that too many teachers have been unable to make them work smoothly and convincingly. Instead I will continue to offer traditional one-to-one lessons where everything happens in real-time, with excellent sound and sight, and without any of the synchronisation and interruption problems of virtual lessons

Lessons will now be based on two excellent Roland A-88 keyboards, side-by-side, but clear-screen separated The grand piano will still be available for exam/advanced pupils. Almost all my current pupils have committed to resuming lessons in this new protective environment but I will have a few vacancies too. Thanks for your patience

I have taught and performed professionally for over 45 years in Oxford and have led two independent music schools since 1991. I offer expert, friendly and sympathetic tuition for all ages & stages. I teach only on Tue/Wed/Thu/Sat exclusively in my own home (ample free parking) 3 miles west of Oxford City Centre, 2 mins walk from bus routes 4, 4B and S9. I don't undertake institutional or home visits. Please ask for my prospectus, timetable and pupil achievements (in English or Google Translate)
