Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


I offer private tuition in organ, piano and music theory in Cambridge and the surrounding area. I take on students of all ages and experience levels who are keen to improve and progress. No matter what your current standard of playing, from complete beginner upwards, we will devise a programme of tuition tailored to your specific needs. I have particular experience of introducing aspiring organists to the instrument for the first time, even with little or no previous keyboard-playing experience (although you may find it easier once you have reached approx. ABRSM Grade 3 standard on the piano first Ė this can be arranged!).

Tuition usually takes place at the studentís home or other preferred location, although organ students have the option of lessons using the fine 3-manual Kenneth Jones organ at Great St Maryís. The frequency and scheduling of lessons are both flexible.

I am also an experienced composer, specialising in liturgical choral music and small ensemble art music. Consultations can be arranged to help with your composition projects, be they for assessments (GCSEs, A Levels or RCO diplomas, for example) or just for personal pleasure.

I undertake work as a freelance accompanist around Cambridgeshire and further afield. This work ranges from playing for large choral societies in rehearsals and concerts (both organ and piano), to accompanying individual music exams. I routinely play for ABRSM exams taken at the Cambridge exam centre, and am also happy to receive enquiries about similar engagements elsewhere.

I hold an enhanced DBS disclosure for my work at Great St Maryís and have undertaken safeguarding training through the Church of Englandís national scheme.
