I have been a professional musician for several years playing piano and keyboards. Aswell as teaching I perform live several times per week, as part of music various lineups around the country. My many years live playing experience is useful for teaching as I can quickly adapt to different styles and songs students may wish to learn. I am also a published composer and member of the Performing Right Society, I have previously had work featured on Dutch Television, and have music signed with companies in the United States, who place music for prime time television shows.

I have taught piano and keyboard privately at home for several years. During this time I have taught in many styles including Jazz, Classical, Pop, Rock aswell as many others.

I have a 100% pass rate in Classical and Jazz Exams. With many pupils gaining Distinctions aswell as being selected to perform in concerts. (please note that exams are not compulsory in any way, exams should only be taken should the student wishes, the main thing is they have fun!)

Previous experience inclues working with Stagecoach musical theatre school, aswell as the Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre, running music and choir workshops for shows that have been on.

I firmly believe learning music should be about fun and enjoyment, and not seen as a textbook subject as so many make it out to be.

The first lesson always involves qualifying the students own musical interests on their first lesson, so from the outset they can relate and play music they enjoy - this is especially so in younger students - who forcing them to play music they don't want to can put them off music forever!

A home recording studio is also available, where students can create recordings and even their own compositions!

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching piano and keyboards for several years alongside performing live several times per week with various bands and lineups from around the country. This combined experiences enables me to teach with a fresh approach compared to some traditional teachers. I can be highly flexible in adapting from the traditional classical route to learning the most up to date pop song!

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

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?
