Notes:

Happy to teach one-to-one or small groups.

Hi :) I have been teaching music for over 15 years, both privately and in groups. I enjoy working with children and adults, beginners through to intermediates.

I offer fun yet focused sessions and I focus on building confidence alongside technical ability.

Through the initial lessons I gradually get to know pupils, their musical tastes, what inspires them, their aims/goals and any specific requirements in order to provide lessons that are tailored to the individual. Pupils may not yet know the answers to some of these and that's fine :) Alternatively you/your child may have a clear idea and that's great too, I'll seek to support and guide that journey.

I encourage pupils to practice playing by ear as well as reading music, as I feel this greatly benefits their overall understanding of music. I also encourage pupils to play together and perform if they would like. I am a working musician and have been performing for years so can offer advice if useful.

I teach a wide variety of styles including classical, jazz/swing, pop, indie/rock and folk. I am a published song-writer and offer lessons in this skill in addition to piano, keyboard clarinet, sax and music theory tuition.

Overall I have a natural love of, and easy relationship with music and seek to encourage this in my pupils.

I am based in the Preston Park area.
