Notes:

I have been teaching for 10 years at secondary schools and privately.

My philosophy of teaching is to put students' enjoyment of playing as the top priority. With today's generation of children, this often lies in a balanced mix of popular and classical music. Having trained classically myself and also having a huge degree of experience playing piano/keyboard/guitar in bands (from pop/rock to soul and electronic dance), students can benefit from my own passion for all styles of music. Whilst I believe students should be pushed and introduced to music beyond their usual listening, I also realize that students are most inspired when they can relate studied work with the music that they are familiar listening to.

Achieving grades often form a significant part of a student's development and there is a lot of satisfaction to be had by reaching recognised benchmarks. However it is far more important to me to teach students with the goal of them being able to play and enjoy music for the rest of their lives rather than to pass an exam for the sake of it.

Previous students have gone on to pursue music at university and gone on to teach, whilst others have formed bands. One is even currently enjoying success in the UK charts!

At the moment I am not able to teach from my own place, and therefore only offer visiting lessons. A small fee of £5 will be added to the lesson fee to cover travel costs - I am based near central Guildford and can also travel to Burpham and Merrow. For any other nearby location, please enquire.

Please don't hesitate to give me a call or drop me an e-mail if you have any questions. I will not charge for an initial consultation lesson.
