- Tell me about some of your current students.
My current students range from the age of 6 to the age of 50. Most of my students are interested in learning songs (repertoire) and vocal technique. I believe in learning mostly by ear although and through practical exercises "off the page".
Most of my language students are interested in correct pronunciation and being able to speak as fluently as possible, although some are preparing for exams that involve reading and writing.
• BA in Music at Brunel University
• MA in Jazz at Trinity College of Music
• Musician's Union
