Keeping Children Safe in Music is the latest in the EduCare's series of distance learning courses on child protection. The training programme uses short films to show a variety of good and bad practice examples, which will be available to watch online. It will help anyone teaching music to children gain a better understanding of their child protection responsibilities, and avoid situations that could lead to accusations of misconduct.

A caring and patient teacher, my aim is for you to enjoy learning to play the violin or viola, while also learning good technique and posture to enable you to excel.

Having played violin and viola for many years, I have taught private music lessons since 2006, catering for both children and adults. Some students wish to prepare for music exams and my students have a 100% pass rate for ABRSM and Trinity music exams, but there is more to learning music than just exams and I am equally supportive of those who prefer not to take exams.

I am DBS checked and registered to the update service.

I am currently teaching online lessons, or in person at my home studio with distancing and masks.

With a little work, everyone is capable of learning to play an instrument - take pride in your achievements and have fun!
