I teach adults only high-quality online private instrumental music and music theory lessons for £45 per hour.

- It's never too late to learn / relearn an instrument!
- I am a member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians and am qualified to teach classical / jazz / folk PIANO, VIOLIN, DOUBLE BASS and MUSIC THEORY plus exam grades (once the student is fully prepared), to both BEGINNERS or ADVANCED students.
- I believe in facilitating a lifelong LOVE of music, and that learning and playing are about ENJOYMENT, SELF-EXPRESSION, TRANSFORMATION, CURIOSITY, and DEVELOPING INDEPENDENCE AS A MUSICIAN.
- I create lesson plans, worksheets and original compositions tailored to the unique skills and abilities of the student.
- I incorporate new techniques, research and technologies into my teaching.
- I encourage students to become WELL ROUNDED MUSICIANS from the perspective of a multi-instrumentalist (including correct posture, listening, reading, relearning an instrument, composition, improvisation, performance, and the healing aspects of music).
