Biography

I have played the piano since age 10, taking classical lessons and sitting Associated Board grade examinations. I have a BA (QTS) degree in English and Music from Roehampton University and gained broad and valuable teaching experiences as a classroom music teacher and later as a visiting teacher of piano/keyboard with local boroughs of Kingston and Richmond-Upon-Thames. I taught Music Education to adults at Brunel University for over ten years.

I am a professional pianist/ keyboard player with a wealth of live experience. Prior to 2020 I was playing at many of London's top venues either as a solo pianist and singer or as member of jazz and dance bands. I have played at most of the prestigious live music venues in London including the London Jazz Festival and downstairs at Ronnie Scott’s. I have played live on TV and composed music for national advertising and TV series’.

I teach mainly using Rock School Piano which is a progressive series of books leading to grade exams. The exams are not compulsory. Students learn to play well-known songs alongside essential reading and theory skills. I have found these to be enjoyable and accessible for all ages. I always encourage students to achieve the very best they can but I also want them to enjoy the lessons, the pieces and practise. My philosophy is that you achieve more by enjoying what you do. .

I am now teaching online using Zoom and whilst this is not ideal it has meant that I can now offer a free introductory short meeting/lesson (at no obligation) to anyone who may be interested in piano/keyboard lessons. I use this meeting mainly to introduce myself and to chat with prospective students about pianos/keyboards, what they would like to achieve in the lessons and their music preferences. I teach all ages and levels from intermediate to complete beginner so, if you have a piano or keyboard and this is something you have always wanted to do but never got round to it.. now's the time.
