I teach Piano and Organ from beginners to post-diploma level. I also teach music theory and give vocal coaching lessons.

B.Mus (University of Aberdeen)
GBSM (Birmingham Conservatoire)
PGCE (University of Reading)

- How much do you charge?

I offer an free initial consultation session at my home studio - this gives you the opportunity to discuss any questions you might have and a sample of my teaching style.
Lessons are from £40 per hour. I am happy to travel within the London area. Travel expenses are based on time/distance involved - ask to further details.

- Where do you teach?

I teach in my music studio at home and can travel across London.

- When are you available?

Various times Wednesday to Saturday. The majority of my students are adults who require some flexibility in booking lesson times.

My students currently range from 4 - 60+ in age. I teach students of all abilities but particularly enjoy working with adults returning to music.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Making music can be a life-giving experience, great therapy at the end of a day or purely for fun! Click on the link to my website above to find out more about me and how I can help you achieve any of these goals.

Experience

I have been a private music teacher for 30 years. Teaching posts have included Director of Music at the junior departments of Mill Hill School, University College School and Lecturer at the College of North-West London. Further details are available on my website (link above)

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

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I teach students from 4 - 60+ in age. They range from beginners to music college graduates. I particularly enjoy teaching adults returning to music having had some lessons as a child.
