Classical piano
Classical violin

- Tell me about your qualifications.

- Bachelor of Arts in Musical Performance from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (Now Royal Conservatoire of Scotland)
- Bachelor of Music (honours) in Performance from the Royal College of Music
- Postgraduate Diploma in Piano Accompaniment from the Royal College of Music
- Masters Degree in Advanced Instrumental Studies from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama,

During my Masters I specialised in 20th Century and contemporary music and gained a distinction for my final recital in Milton Court In London's Barbican Centre.

I received various scholarships to support my studies, including awards from Pro Musica Ltd, the Worshipful Company of Stationers and the Guildhall Music Trust.

- How much do you charge?

My standard rate is £32 per hour for one-to-one tuition (in line with MU rates for 2016).

Blocks of lessons are paid for in advance. If I am travelling I may need charge a fee relative to travel time and cost.

A trial lesson is highly recommended before committing to lessons. I offer a discount for this.

Once it has been decided that lessons will commence, both student/parent and teacher sign a Lesson Agreement which aims to protect both student and teacher.

I am available to teach within the city of Exeter. I am based in St Leonards, but am happy to travel within reasonable distances.

I am available weekdays and evenings during term time, and am often available during the holidays. Feel free to make inquiries about my availability.

All ages from 4 through to adults.

I have taught beginners right up to post grade 8 and diploma students.

I have been teaching for the last 14 years, including 5 years as a peripatetic teacher and accompanist in an independent school in London. In October 2015 I was appointed as a Visiting Music Teacher at Blundell's School, Tiverton.

I am a qualified and experienced accompanist, having played with other instrumentalists since I began piano at the age of 7. I have excellent sightreading skills, and have accompanied all levels of instrumentalists, from beginners to professionals.
