Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have over 20 years of teaching and 25 years of performing experience. I have coached students through their grades. I have also encouraged students in developing their aural skills as well as their music and sight reading abilities. I have also taught students how to play jazz and pop music - helping to develop chord structures and composition ideas. This also includes helping them with their theory skills.
I have coached advanced players who wish to play at functions and solo performances. This would also include students who wished to accompany singers and play in bands.
I have accompanied singers and instrumentalists for exams, auditions and concerts. I have been a music teaching assistant in a secondary school, working with Yr 7- 11 students, and also Music GCSE students.
I have composed music for television and theatre, and played in bands that have produced 4 CDs.
Performed solo piano at weddings and functions and concerts, playing in two function bands. I am currently teaching piano privately one to one. I also co-ordinate and lead a worship band in an Anglican church.

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

Yes

I am currently teaching a 7 year old aural skills by learning theme tunes and songs. Also he is learning to read music through "Play Time" piano book series.
I have also recently coached a pupil through their Grade 1 and have coached an adult pupil to play at a wedding.
