I tutor in A level music. G.C.S.E. music, Pre-U music, Music Theory, General Musicianship and the Piano. I particularly love teaching beginners as well as more advanced students. I also prepare students for university or VIth form entrance.

£35 per hour for all subjects.

Currently students range from 10 years old to 18.

A.B.R.S.M exams (Piano and Theory), G.C.S.E. , A Level, Pre-U (C.I.E board). I take students through Grade V theory regularly.

I am kind, patient and want to bring out the best in you. I am told that I am clear about what is required but create a relaxed atmosphere in which students can thrive.

Background

I am an enthusiastic and professional teacher who has been involved in secondary music education for over 30 years, most recently for 16 years as Director of Music at the Tiffin Girls' School. I am currently Director of Music at Holy Trinity Church Clapham and Director of Music at the Thames Christian College. I also work as an examiner for C.I.E examinations (for the Pre-U music qualification).

Yes . In fact I have 2 current DBS checks in operation. One from my school and one from my church.

I studied at the University of Bristol and Goldsmith's College and later spent time working on compositions with eminent figures such as Sir Peter Maxwell Davies and Peter Dickinson.

I have Hugo who has just passed his grade 2 Piano with merit. I have just taken Ase through her Grade V theory (89%) and am working on Grade 7 piano with Oscar. I am also just finishing tutoring Lelia for preparation for Oxbridge entrance in music.
