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.

Whether you want to learn a musical instrument for the first time, are coming back to playing after a long break or want to develop your performance technique and music theory knowledge; my lessons provide a comprehensive and personal programme of study to help you to achieve your learning goals.

I also provide vocal coaching to develop your singing alongside guitar accompaniment lessons if this is something you are interested in.

With my lessons you can:

* Learn from an experienced Registry of Guitar Tutors ([email protected]) member with a degree in music, who is also a member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians;

* Gain internationally recognised qualifications;
Construct tailored lesson plans to suit your individual learning goals;

* Have consultation lessons for GCSE and A-Level Music from an ex-Head of Music & qualified secondary school teacher;

* Develop performance, composition and general musicianship skills in a variety of styles;

* Interact with other students at my Concerts & Workshops;

* Enjoy exploring a world of music.

All lessons are taught in my Dedicated Music Teaching Studio in Somerton. (Completed in July 2019)

I have an Enhanced DBS certificate and Public Liability insurance, as well as in depth safeguarding and child protection training from my experience as a secondary school teacher.

Please feel free to peruse my professional profiles with any the following organisations, all of which I am a full member of: the Registry of Guitar Tutors (which is affiliated with the London College of Music); the Incorporated Society of Musicians and the Musicians Union.

If you have any questions or want to organise a trial lesson, feel free to contact me.

I teach from any stage; from absolute beginner to advanced students and am happy for parents to sit in with younger students.

You can book lessons lasting 45, 60 or 120 minutes.

Lesson prices are inclusive of any resources and refreshments that I provide; any additional resources such as musical equipment, books and additional music arrangements & compositions are available at an additional cost.

If this is your first lesson with me then I offer a 'Half Price Trial Lesson'. This first lesson is a chance for us to get to know each other, for me to discuss your personalised lesson plans with you and for you to decide whether I will be the right music tutor for you. This is offered on a no obligation basis.

My teaching approach is based around developing a comprehensive and personal training plan which suits your individual learning goals and aspirations, including what skills and experience you have and your wider interests.

I also offer paired/group lessons if such an arrangement is desirable. Please make this request clear when contacting me to arrange your lessons; so that I can make any necessary adjustments to my facilities in order to cater for your tailored needs.

Please do feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Otherwise please do feel free to visit my website @
