2020 Update...I am currently offering lessons online over Skype and Zoom! Please feel free to enquire...

Hello, I'm a piano accordion player based in Brighton and Hove. I play and teach many styles of music with a particular focus on folk.

Before we start our lessons I like to find out what music you are interested in learning and try to build our sessions around that. I also like to get into playing fun, suitable folk tunes with my students as soon as possible and can use written music or not, whichever you prefer. I can also teach bits of theory in the lessons but only as much as you want!

Outside of teaching my professional work mostly consists of playing in Irish/Celtic bands, Ceilidh and Eastern European/Klezmer bands. I also work as a musical director for theatre and am the co-artistic director of 'In the Bellows Theatre Company'. I repair accordions and other free reed instruments and am the in house repairer for 'Hobgoblin Music Shop Brighton'.

I often teach out of my home in central Brighton but for £5 extra can travel anywhere in Brighton and Hove. If you prefer lessons can also take place downstairs in Hobgoblin Music Brighton, again for only £5 extra. For lessons further afield please enquire.

I have many years of teaching experience with adults and children alike and am fully CRB checked.
