Within the past year, four of my students have been offered places at Arts Educational and other students have been accepted at Italia Conti, Urdang and Mountview.
I have been teaching piano and singing privately for some fifteen years and enjoy my work very much. I have an outstanding record of success at piano, classical singing and music theatre grades with 100% pass rate; the overwhelming majority of my students gain merits or distinctions.
I tailor a curriculum with weekly practice and lesson logs for each student and teach every student how to practice effectively.
Within the last twelve months several of my students have passed Grade 8 Music Theatre with Distinction, others have passed performance diplomas and gained places at some of the most prestigious institutions in the UK.
I do not continue to teach students who do not practise and keep in very regular contact with parents to review progress and potential.
The minimum standard that I will consider for a new singing student is grade 5 (or equivalent) although I do take on adult beginners who are motivated and who interest me.
Most of my piano students are intermediate to advanced but I will take beginners who demonstrate potential (on a trial basis only.)
My approach to teaching is friendly but businesslike. I will enquire after the health of the hamster but prefer to spend lesson time teaching not chatting.
I draw on my extensive experience as an ex-professional musician (read biog page for further details) and my qualifications to deliver consistent, purposeful teaching.
I offer lessons to students in Pontypool, Cwmbran and Blackwood (South Wales).
