Oxford music graduate offering piano and music lessons in Cambridge area to all abilities

Methodology

I have a very open attitude towards teaching and prioritise student enjoyment above all else! Only by enjoying the process of learning an instrument can anyone hope to make progress. As a result, I have always been very happy to have students bring music of their own choice to lessons, and rarely do I dictate what music someone should be looking at. I look to give technical guidance through whatever music is at hand, and similarly encourage students to explore particular theoretical or contextual ideas in their music as a complement to the process of learning the notes.

Experience

I'm an experienced musician, pianist, and teacher from Cambridge. I have been teaching for several years across a range of abilities in both classical and jazz piano, my two main areas of study. I have an ABRSM Diploma in classical piano, and have been playing jazz for many years now. With my own group, I have performed at the London Jazz Festival multiple times, at Ronnie Scott's, and many other venues across the UK. At Oxford I was fortunate enough to work with some amazing classical musicians including Yo Yo Ma, Steven Isserlis, and the Villiers Quartet, from all of whom I learned a great deal.
