Keeping Children Safe in Music is the latest in the EduCare's series of distance learning courses on child protection. The training programme uses short films to show a variety of good and bad practice examples, which will be available to watch online. It will help anyone teaching music to children gain a better understanding of their child protection responsibilities, and avoid situations that could lead to accusations of misconduct.

Memberships: (verified) Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM)


I have an honours degree in Music and Education (BEd Hons) and have taught music in schools and privately.

I currently offer Piano lessons at my home (Classical, Jazz & Blues, Rock & Pop), both for leisure and in preparation for Grade Exams. I also offer lessons in all aspects of Music Theory, including Sight Singing.

I have taught young beginners through to mature learners and welcome all ages.

I teach from a large dedicated music room in a Victorian town house in Ilfracombe. The music room is well equipped and includes a comfortable two-seater sofa in the bay window for parents to sit in on lessons. I am very comfortable with parents sitting in on lessons and I positively encourage this as I find children do better in their lessons when a parent comes along.

I offer a free 30 minute consultation lesson. During this time we can discuss my approach to instrumental teaching and what you hope to gain from lessons. We usually do some playing to give a taste of what lessons will be like. There is no obligation to continue with lessons after the consultation.
