I have been teaching the piano and its associated subjects for the past thirty one years in Rotherham. I am an ex examiner for LCMM and also an ex member of EPTA. I enter students of all ages for the performing / theoretical ( from grade / diploma ) exams of the main recognized boards of music only eg ABRSM, GSM, TCL and LCMM. My expertise is gospel music, having travelled the world as a pianist for the world's largest gospel touring organization " The Continental Singers ".

I offer a wide and enjoyable music curriculum that's supported by a vast collection of pianistic resources such as texts, videos / dvds ( including the " Taubman Techniques " - the only piano pedagogy video collection ( ten in all ) in the world from the prestigious Taubman Institute in New York and others by Lister-Sink, Bernstein, Fink, True etc!!!! ) as well as an array of resources that are documented in my Pianistic Reference Library.

A warm and communicative way of pedagogy is offered in my teaching practice and many of my students have been very successful in further studies at major conservatoires in the UK and abroad eg The Royal Academy of Music, the Conservatoire of Music in Buenos Aires and Trinity College of Music.

I offer a college course in the History of Music etc, exploiting to the full the lectures by the world renowned professor Robert Greenberg of the Conservatory of San Francisco / The Teaching Company. These are unrivalled and cover all areas from Medieval music to the present day as well as other topics. My personal teaching philosophy is to impart a wide, diverse and rounded pianistic curriculum, not just to teach the principles of piano performance skills for examination purposes only.

Please be assured that I will leave no stone unturned as I aid you in developing your all rounded skills as a pianist / all rounded musician as nothing less will suffice.

I am proud to offer a theoretical curriculum that's sonic, exploiting to the full the tonal harmony courses that are offered from the USA, Canada and Australia.
Sadly the UK music examination boards have yet to introduce and promote a theoretical syllabus that's sonic orientated, resulting in most pedagogues exploiting the UK theoretical resources only as they are unaware of what's available internationally.
I pride myself on being totally up to date and offer these international resources - texts, student resources, Online Learning Centres, Instructor Manuals and their correlating sonic tools.

Feel free to make an appointment to visit my studio and you will then be able to " try before you buy ! "

Please note that exams do NOT guarantee the possession of the needed all rounded musical / pianistic skills to become an expert pianist.
I am able to offer all these necessary skills and whilst many pedagogues claim to offer specific things, sadly this is not the case.
Seek me out and you will not be disappointed!!!
