BAHons in music composition and professional practice
Instruments: Piano
Genre/Style(s): Classical
Ability Levels: Beginners to Intermediate


Primarily I am a pianist and composer with a access to a large array of musical styles and different types of composition. I play a wide selection of instruments and most enjoy playing in group (ensemble) formats and improvising. I know how music works and can teach theory and general musicianship.

I'm a friendly easy going person willing to teach all ages (it's never too late to start!). I'm very patient and thorough - I'm always willing to explain things as many times as needed, in as much detail as needed.

For the last four years I have been teaching for the Barnet Music Service (Now the Barnet Education Arts Trust) and I have been teaching privately for some time. I have also been teaching general musicianship and multi-instrumental approaches to people for as long as I can remember.

I teach on a one to one basis and like to encourage in students as often as possible the elements of creativity and confidence.

My approach to music is quite adaptable and depends entirely on the student. For example if a student wishes to pass grade 2 with merit then the lessons will be structured and focused on exactly how to do that. Or if a student wishes to improve their general musicianship and technique then lessons would be geared towards specific ideas and objectives which over time would improve these features. Or perhaps the student simply want to improve their jazz improvisation - this too is not a problem.

My policy is that students will get out of lessons only what they put in. If students are enthusiastic, interested and eager to learn then lessons will be highly educational, efficient and most of all enjoyable.
