Genre/Style(s): Friendly, patient, kind tuition given on piano and clarinet for those who have reached an intermediate and advanced level, normally about grade 5 and are committed to practising regularly and systematically (full guidance is given on this) between lessons.

This is my personal preference in my private teaching to counter-balance my school work which includes beginners upwards. But if you feel you or your child are especially keen, and have lots of potential to show real commitment to get the best out of the lesson process and are particularly keen to learn quickly, are resolutely committed to practise systematically and are willing and have the aptitude to take the early grades sooner than later, then do get in touch as I usually make availability for a small number of keen, driven private pupils who are pre-grade 5.

For those who have reached grade 5, doing further grades is one option. Looking at and exploring music for its own sake is equally valid as a reason for wanting to study. Again, a real commitment to practise is paramount to get the best out of the process. Contact me for availability.

And for those who have passed grade 8, the diplomas are an option to consider if there is a realistic approach to preparing for them and an aptitude to do them, whilst an equally motivating idea can be to study music for its own creative rewards plus maybe on clarinet to give local concerts as a member of an amateur band or orchestra or to accompany on the piano a friend who also plays a musical instrument. Please feel free to contact me about these ideas and more.

My teaching is pupil-based. I go at the pupil’s pace and am supportive and encouraging and indeed flexible at all times.
