Notes:

I am based in Davenport, Stockport and offer tuition at all levels in piano, singing and violin. I welcome adults as well as children, with a free consultation lesson given prior to commencing regular tuition.

I welcome students of all ages and levels, from beginner through to advanced, with the main emphasis of my teaching being enjoyment (no pressure to take exams unless you want to).

As a professional pianist, as well as teacher, I accompany a wide range of soloists and groups, including choirs and solo performers for examination entries.

Singing is an important aspect of any musician’s development. My experience both as a choral singer and soloist enables me to support students in their general musical development, as well as teaching vocal technique on an individual basis.

I am an experienced, enthusiastic and friendly music teacher and teach pupils of all ages from beginner to diploma level. As a piano teacher, I believe that being an active pianist enables me to teach more effectively. My approach to teaching young people is child-centred, so that lessons are tailored to different learning styles, enabling pupils of all ages and abilities to make progress and enjoy their musical learning. I believe that music lessons should be fun, but that making progress is important, whether or not examinations are involved. Weekly lessons need to motivate pupils to practice regularly, so must be enjoyable. I select repertoire appropriate to the age and standard of the pupil, embracing a range of different styles including classical, jazz and popular music. I include elements of music theory at all levels because it is an important aspect of understanding music.

I also have a Certificate in Dalcroze - “Musicianship through Movement”, a technique which I bring into my lessons, as it teaches children how to feel music through movement before they transfer it to an instrument. It is particularly helpful for younger children and kinesthetic learners. It can also be an important tool to help pupils with special educational needs.

Although examination success is only a part of musical achievement, I regularly enter pupils for ABRSM examinations. I have 100% pass rate with in excess of 80% achieving merit or distinction.

My friendly personality compliments my teaching abilities as it enables me to build very good working relationships with both parents and pupils.

I currently teach in primary and secondary schools in the Stockport area, and enjoy the involvement in school based work.
