Notes:

I love my career, no day is the same as everyone learns differently. Iíve been teaching for 11 years and enjoy tailoring lessons to students of all ages and interests. Every other year when the ABRSM bring out their new piano syllabus for classical music I record and upload versions to youtube, one at the correct tempo and another slightly slower version to help students learn the pieces. As I learnt to play without music I understand what it is like to play by ear, and means Iím able to teach students to play traditionally through sight reading, but also teach students to play without reading, developing skills such as improvisation and composition.

I enjoy nearly all music, everything from Chopin and Bach, to Radiohead and the Beetles and have adapted music from all genres for solo piano. You can check out a few of my favourite pieces I have recorded for weddings on my youtube channel. I currently work with a dj in Huddersfield composing dance music and in doing this have developed new ways of making different styles of music sound good on the piano.

I possess a full DBS certificate and teach from home where I have a purpose made music room. Friends and family can sit on the lesson and there is also a dedicated waiting area. My piano is a 1960s Knight made in Britain, I also use a Casio Privia electric piano for those who wish to play keyboard.
