Providing music lessons in the comfort of the your own home, I am a highly qualified professional performer, teacher and accompanist with over 25 years of experience, currently covering the St. Albans, Harpenden and Radlett area.

I provide tuition for pupils of all ages (from 6 to 66), in piano, theory, aural skills, and practical musicianship for both ABRSM and Trinity Guildhall, covering the standard graded structure through to diploma fellowship level.

Specialising in teaching advanced players, musically gifted children and motivated adults, who are seeking to rekindle their skills from yesteryear, I add value to the learning experience by teaching in the luxury of the pupil's own home environment.

I have a 100% pass rate with all my students who have ever taken examinations - the vast majority of them with Distinction.

A former lecturer in music at universities in Oxfordshire and Hertfordshire, I am also a deputy organist for a couple of churches locally.

In addition, I provide coaching to teachers, professionals and potential professional musicians as well as singers.

I also accompany singers and instrumentalists at all levels for recitals, auditions, competitions and ABRSM examinations through to diploma level.
