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


I am an active concert pianist with a wide-ranging repertoire and I have given recitals in many countries of the world.

I am originally from London, moving to Harrogate in 1990. I have taught Piano, Keyboard and Electronic Organ since 1980 both privately and in schools.

I visit pupils in Leyburn, Richmond, Northallerton and Ripon - anywhere within that circumference. My stated fees are basic and there would be a small supplementary charge if I have to travel a distance. I can give a verbal quote.

I accept anyone 7 or over. I give a weekly lesson to children during the school term and expect regularity. I am usually available also during school holidays.

In the case of adults, in view of their job and family commitments, I am flexible as to how often they have lessons.

I teach to all levels. I encourage pupils to take the Grade exams. I can also help with Music GCSE.

I teach beginners to read music - the system of notation and the theoretical knowledge that lies behind that. Pupils should gradually become self-reliant in playing from music.

I can advise the parents of prospective pupils as to the best choice of instrument for their child to learn on.

As a self-employed person I do not have a DBS certificate, but instead Subject Access, which is similar. There are no entries against my name on the Police National Computer.

Parents are welcome to sit in on lessons if they so wish.
