Instruments: Piano

Music Theory
Genre/Style(s): Classical
Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


I have great enthusiasm to impart the pleasure and sheer joy of music making to anyone ( age 7 upwards for piano) wanting to learn piano or double bass. I have taught both piano and double bass for the past 33 years and have had to date a totally successful pass history for Graded exams (Grades 1-8) both for Associated Board and Guildhall school of music schemes. Although I believe it is useful to achieve the goals set by the Graded examination system I am willing to accept the wishes of the individual student/parent regarding doing exams.
I also teach theory of music. I have been CRB checked (renewed June 2014). I am willing to make home visits depending on distance.
As the teacher I would expect the student to practise daily (initially 20 minutes/day for young beginners) the pieces set for that week.
I am a professional performing orchestral double bass player having held full time positions as sub principal double bass in both the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Royal Ballet Sinfonia and the position of principal double bass in the BBC Concert Orchestra. I am at present a freelance performer working in sessions and performing with many of the UK's professional orchestras.
