I was a faculty member and examiner for the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto for many uears. Since our return to the UK I have been teaching sudents privately. Lessons are offered in my Kensington and Chelsea studio to children and adults of all capabilities; many of my students have been with me from grade 1 through to "diploma" level, winning both local competitions and earning UCAS points to help them qualify for the secondary school or university of their choice. I enjoy teaching students that are motivated and willing to work.

- What kind of experience do you have?
I was born and educated in England. I have been involved in musical education for over 30 years. Having initially been taught and performed piano under the guidance of Dame Fanny Waterman in Leeds, I subsequently received my undergraduate piano and musical education diplomas at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester University and the Royal Academy of Music. I moved to Canada where I continued her studies with Margaret Parsons-Poole at the Royal Conservatory in Toronto (RCM) . For over 20 years I was a member of the piano faculty and examining board of the RCM. During this period I also performed on and produced a number of CD's with Sony Music and ran my own music management company. Since returning to live in the UK I have taught and adjudicated piano and has been involved in a number of music/education charitable initiatives. I believe passionately in the importance of the arts and particularly music, as a basis for developing human potential. I am on the board of the Lily Kertes Foundation, which supports children, education and the arts. I was involved in introducing the innovative RCM "Learning through the Arts" programme to the UK. Over the years I have presented at a number of national and international meetings in the US and Canada on piano pedagogy and related topics.
