I teach from student's homes and from my home depending on which is more suitable. If I each from your home, it is useful if there is a piano or CD player available for use with backing tracks and accompaniment. I can travel to the following locations: Ware, Hertford, Hoddesdon, Broxbourne and Cheshunt subject to my schedule and waiting list.

I currently teach in Derosa Music in Bishops Stortford on Mondays and Fridays (all lessons are booked through them). I teach at my home studio and in surrounding areas Tuesday - Thursday.
