Notes:

I offer piano tuition for children and adults, from beginner to advanced levels, in all styles and genres. The minimum age for students is 9 years.

I also give lessons in theory and harmony and provide tuition in composition, orchestration and arrangement including songwriting. Potential students should show some evidence of their work.

Learning should be a discovery, self-exploratory and fun. Whether you want to play for enjoyment, prepare for grade exams or are looking to improve your playing for professional purposes, I am an encouraging and patient teacher who recognises that everybody learns differently. I possess a thorough understanding of pedagogical strategies and tailor my approach to fit a student’s individual needs and preferences.

Perhaps most importantly, I believe in well-rounded musicianship and the benefits resulting from a solid grasp of the various facets of music of which pianistic technique is but one aspect. Sight-reading fluency and a discerning ear are as essential as theoretical knowledge and stylistic sensibilities. I therefore aim to equip learners with a wide-ranging skill set that enables them to develop their musical ability alongside a deeper sense of awareness and appreciation.

I cover ABRSM and Trinity/Guildhall syllabuses in piano and theory, tutor pupils for GCSE and A-level exams, prepare candidates for university entry auditions and support students through music degree courses.

A free consultation is available to discuss your aims and aspirations. I ask that pupils have access to a keyboard instrument and are committed to regular practice. Block booking is possible for reduced rates. I conduct lessons at my home and hold a current and enhanced disclosure DBS (CRB).
