I was born in 1972 and started learning to play the piano at age 5. I won the Canford School piano competition for two consecutive years, achieving Grade 8 piano with distinction and grade 7 clarinet at the age of 18. I have since made public performances both as a soloist and with ensembles, working as a musician in many diverse situations from hotel entertainment and formal concerts to teaching percussion and primitive drum making in summer camps!

I have been teaching the piano formally since 2015, primarily to beginners, using the Faber "Piano Adventures" series of tutor books, I am registered to enter students for the ABRSM music exams and currently preparing my first student for the Trinity College exams.

I aim to encourage the development of musicality, rhythm and sensitivity in my teaching and to tailor my approach to suit the learning style and abilities of each student.

I also play other instruments - saxophone, guitar, percussion, African drums, didgeridoo, tin whistle - and would be happy to give beginners' lessons in any of these as well as piano to an intermediate level (around grade 6). I can offer an introduction any of these instruments if a new student wants help choosing an instrument to learn.

I teach from home, using an upright piano, or at students' homes by arrangement (for a higher fee, dependant on travelling time).

My last Enhanced DBS check was in 2016 and I have Public Liability insurance.
