I am a professional and classically trained teacher of all ages and abilities with well developed communication and coaching skills. People tell me Iím friendly and dedicated! Whether your aim is to play or sing for fun, enter grade examinations (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music), or prepare for a concert or audition, all tuition is designed to suit the level, style and pace of the individual student.

I studied at the London College of Music and Bristol University. I perform regularly on the piano and trumpet/cornet and am an experienced accompanist, conductor and vocal/orchestral/brass band coach. As well as individual tuition my teaching experience includes secondary school music teaching, including GCSE and A level, at Dr Challonerís Grammar School in Amersham, Bucks.
