I am friendly, enthusiastic teacher who loves music and the piano, beginners are a speciality and all ages are welcome!

My approach to music and the piano is that I combine a high technical standard with lots of fun. I believe that we are all individuals and therefore thought and planning is required to ensure that the approach is best suited for each student in order that they achieve their full potential.

I use a variety of music teaching books for both practical and theory and other mediums, for example Xylophone, tambourine, different ‘voices’ on the Clavinova, to explore sounds, rhythms and pulse and to add interest and fun.
In order to broaden my students’ musical knowledge, I use a variety of sheet music and CD’s to illustrate different styles and types of music and offer suggestions of composers and their works that they can listen to.

I have always loved music, especially Classical – my first record bought at the age of 10 was Katchachurian’s Sabre Dance! – Wonderful!!

I consider that my style of teaching is one of thinking ‘outside the box’ and having an empathetic approach which enables my students to feel confident and enjoy learning.
