Lessons are currently available online only, via Skype, FaceTime, Zoom and any other suitable software.

All ages from 5 years upwards are welcome for lessons. I have no upper age limit: I believe that learning to play an instrument should be accessible to everyone who wants to.

My teaching practice has a diverse mix of learners, from complete beginners to post-Grade 8. I have pupils who learn for leisure and wellbeing, as well as pupils who pursue graded music exams at all levels. The choice of path is yours to make.

Lessons are tailored to suit each person. Although my background is classical, I'm more than happy teaching whichever style or styles are preferred, and at a pace to suit you.

I teach music theory as a standalone subject to enhance further and higher education studies at college or university (e.g. Grades 5 to 8 as you need), or for your own personal ambition.

I'm a member of The Incorporated Society of Musicians which is the UK's professional body for musicians since 1882. As well as my music degree, I've studied composition at degree levels 4, 5 and 6. I regularly undertake Continuing Professional Development courses, most recently Teaching Online. I'm enhanced DBS checked.

Lessons are at my home studio or delivered online depending on your preference.

Prices and times are:
£10 for 30 minutes
