I have played piano since I was very small. Classical, Modern and now Jazz. I have the experience of seeing my practice benefit my playing and worked towards exams so I full understand that there are highs and lows in learning an instrument. I have been taught by strict tutors, sloppy tutors and genuinely gifted tutors and believe that I have the best elements of all three in a structured lesson.

- Do you have a personal message for students?
The key to developing is establishing a practice regime that you can realistically stick to. Practising once a week doesn't allow your fingers to stretch and for you to build up necessary memory and stamina. Why not begin with 10 minutes every day and build up to several 10 minute practises during the day. Make your practising fun. Add games into your routine and then reward yourself.

I have been teaching for over twenty years.
One to one and group lessons.
