I can teach all styles, however my background and training is in classical music. Specialist areas include English art song, Italian aria and German lied, in which I concentrate on breathing, tone production, clarity text (including vowel production) and bel canto singing.

I currently teach beginners to intermediate level pianists. I am happy to teach children and adults who are just starting out, as well as more experienced pianist that are serious about learning.

I am happy to teach pedalling, stop selection, playing techniques, hymn playing and ABRSM grades.

I am a performer, teacher, composer/music arranger and music typesetter.

I teach people of all ages and adopt a sensitive and encouraging approach when teaching children. If you or your child has always wanted to be able to sing, play the piano or get to grips with the organ, then my experience and expertise will be of invaluable benefit in you achieving your dreams.

As a composer, I specialise in contemporary music with a particular interest in extended techniques and micro-tonalities on woodwind instruments. I also thoroughly enjoy working with Bach Chorales and hymn writing.

I provide assistance and ideas for students requiring help with GCSE and A-Level music composition. I concentrate on getting students to think about establishing and developing ideas, then use my skills and experiences to manipulate and enhance their ideas through various thought-provoking exercises.

I am professionally teaching all ages and abilities from beginner to diploma levels, using the philosophy that students (beginners or experienced) should be taught correctly from the very first lesson. I achieve this through meticulous research and from guidance obtained from my professional experiences and University tuition. I focus on establishing and maintaining a reliable technique, complemented with a structured theory that enhances the learning process whilst aiming to keep lessons fun and informal.

Please be aware that I operate a 24-hour cancellation policy on all lessons.

Please email me at [email protected] or telephone with any questions or for further details.
