Notes:

I am a professional musician and music teacher with a pedigree in contemporary music styles including pop, rock, soul and funk but a passion for all good music.

In addition to instrumental lessons on Piano, Keyboards, Guitar and Bass I also teach Music Performance, Harmony and Theory and Ear Training.

I am currently teaching at the London Centre of Contemporary music where I am module leader for Music Performance on the HNC course for adults. I also work for Southwark Music Service teaching music performance workshops and song writing in schools in the London Borough of Southwark and in between this and a hectic gigging schedule find some time for private lessons. My experience means I have taught a broad range of students and I love working with enthusiastic and talented people from all age groups and trying to find new and exciting ways to make music tuition relevant and fun for the individual.

I have been teaching for over 10 years initially teaching piano and keyboards for both contemporary styles or classical piano for which I use the ABRSM grades system. I also specialise in the teaching of music harmony and theory, arranging and composition. Covering all levels from those who need help with the basics to assistance with arranging and composition assignments for those on music degree courses.

As a professional musician I have been lucky enough to work with acts from the US such as George Clinton (Parliament/Funkadelic), Archie Bell and the Drellls, Odyssey (Native New Yorker, Back to My Roots), Steve Arrington, Glenn Jones, Yarbrough and Peoples, Surface and recently cowrote and played keyboards on the latest release from with Detroit singer Alicia Myers (One Way). I have also performed with veterans of the UK funk and soul scene such as Noel McKoy and Camelle Hinds (Central Line, Paul Weller).

I have a full and recent CRB check. I am comfortable teaching all ages from primary school to adults. I am based in South London and have facilities to teach at my house but am also willing to teach at students premises if required.
