Notes:

Music is my passion. I believe that the opportunity for students to discover and pursue their own musical passion is an invaluable one, and as an instrumental teacher I try to promote in my students the same sense of creativity and ambition that drives me as a musician.
In terms of my experience as a performer, I have achieved some notable accolades. In 2009 I achieved second place in the first ever Clifford Benson piano competition. As a result of my final BA dissertation performance, I was awarded a bursary by the Funtington Music Group to study at Masters level. I also performed at the opening concert of the 2010 Petworth Arts Festival.
Please see my videos for some examples of my playing.
In addition to my experience as a performer, I also have extensive experience as a teacher of both the guitar and piano. I have successfully coached my students to pass ABRSM practical examinations, and I have experience teaching complete beginners.
My approach to teaching is centred on the idea that instrumental lessons should be student-focussed; the lesson is the student's opportunity to show the teacher the progress (s)he has made since the previous lesson. I do demand that my students practice, and I push them to work hard during the lessons. In this way they can see the greatest improvement in the smallest amount of time.
