My approach is pupil-focussed, friendly, relaxed and encouraging. Learners are encouraged to engage with the music that interests and inspires them (be that playing for fun or graded music exams).

Qualifications and Experience—
I hold a Master of Music degree (awarded with distinction) alongside numerous other professional qualifications and awards including the Certificate in Teaching from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. Additionally I am currently working towards a PhD in Musicology and Performance.

As a teacher I have over fifteen years experience working in a wide array of educational settings. I was Head of Keyboard for Southend Music Services and taught piano at many of the leading schools in Southend before moving to Medway. I have also delivered masterclasses, workshops, group tuition and lectures across the south east of England.

I have extensive experience as a professional freelance musician and have performed nationally and internationally with with numerous groups and ensembles, predominately in the field of jazz. I also have experience working as a freelance composer, arranger, and sound engineer.

Location and Cost—
I teach from my home in Maidstone. My fees are £15 for 30mins and £30 for 60mins.

Lessons are for learners of all abilities and age. I am equally happy teaching beginners or coaching fellow professional musicians.

Lesson Content—
Lessons will be conducted on a one-to-one basis, however parents are welcome to sit-in on lessons if they wish. Schemes of work are uniquely devised for each pupil in response to their needs, goals and ambitions.
