Biography

I have enjoyed music from a very young age, commencing piano lessons when I was just 2.

Music soon became a passion and throughout my life it has been a constant companion. I qualified very young and have skills in multiple instruments.

I don't really see teaching as a job but more an opportunity to share my passion with a student. I always remember my first piano teacher telling me that the verb to do with music is "to play", so if I am not enjoying it I'm doing it wrong. This has served me well to this day.

I really believe that music is a skill that everyone can benefit from, and it really doesn't matter where you are start. I have taken on students as young as 4 and as mature as 80+ and try to ensure that the lessons are fun as well as developmental.

It doesn't matter to me whether you want to take exams or not, I will help you to develop the areas of interest to you. If you have chosen not to take exams, in order to demonstrate your learning I will often select a current exam piece into your repertoire but we don't have to actually enter the exams.

I have had a lot of success with both Trinity and ABRSM exams. I prefer teaching the Trinity syllabus but still teach theory alongside as it is as important to understand the skills as to be able to do them. I will, however, teach any syllabus if you have a personal preference.

I always like to meet you prior to starting lessons - just so that you get to meet me as I want you have to feel safe making mistakes while learning. I teach from my home address, but will travel in exceptional circumstances. If I do come to you a small surcharge will be paid as I will have to compensate for the time I am not teaching, but please call to discuss this.
