- Do you have a personal message for students?

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

5 years of tutoring for Music GCSE and A Level which has helped pupils gain success in their exams. 30 years teaching piano to all ages, levels and abilities - for exams, festivals or personal enjoyment. Past and present students include those who have followed a career in music, and pupils with Aspergers and learning difficulties, who have found great benefit from learning to play the piano or keyboard.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes

- Where and with whom did you train?

West Kent College, Dartington College of Arts, Kingston University.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My current students are very varied in age, interests and abilities, and this ensures I stay up to date with a wide diversity of subjects. Some school age and adult pupils prefer to work systematically through the piano or keyboard grades, whilst others prefer to learn in a more relaxed way and choose all their repertoire. A number of students are studying towards theory or musicianship exams , as well as revising for GCSE. Everyone who has an interest in studying music , piano and keyboard are welcome.
