Notes:

I'm happy to teach any age, from pre-school to retirement!

Iíve been playing the piano since I was three years old, and am a huge advocate of the pleasure, satisfaction and catharsis that playing an instrument can give you.

As well as late afternoon slots for school children, I have good availability at the moment during the school day (Monday to Thursday) for younger and older music students.

After a lifetime of playing music as a hobby alongside a career in social research, and now witnessing the huge pleasure that my three young children take from music, I recently started teaching piano and singing to others. And Iím loving the opportunity to pass on my skills and enthusiasm for music.


MY APPROACH TO TEACHING
As well as teaching musical knowledge and technique, itís very important to me to make learning a musical instrument enjoyable right from the beginning. So my lessons, particularly for young children, will always include games and fun exercises.

I also encourage students to be open to the idea of improvisation Ė something that I feel was lacking in my own classical musical education, which could sometimes be a little too book-driven.

Having said that, Iím also keen to support students who wish to work their way through the examination grades. I did this as a school student, and found it really useful, and ultimately satisfying, to be able to work towards milestones in this way.

Iím also keen to encourage students to perform, when they feel ready. And as part of my teaching practice, I will provide regular opportunities for this.
