I live in Streatham Common, very near the station, trains from Victoria, Balham, Clapham Junction, London Bridge, etc. Also near the bus routes 118, 250, 50, 60, 255, 109 G1. Free parking.
- When are you available?
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
All levels and ages. I recommend starting from around age 6, depending on co-ordination levels, and of course upwards (it is never too late!). I enjoy the process of learning an instrument right from the beginning. I teach all grades, and have experience of all the exam boards, but this is not the only focus for me - I am equally happy to take a pupil though the different levels of playing, without the need for grade exams. I also teach beyond the grade system, through diplomas, and onto degree level. I also adjudicate, so am used to preparing pupils for perfomance and festivals.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I teach beginners at primary school level, intermediate pupils, and some very talented advanced students at the Royal College of Music junior department, Surrey University and London College of Music. I am a tutor on the biannual Woodhouse recorder week, for young advanced players. I am often asked to adjudicate at music festivals, and I regularly give concerts and workshops as a soloist and ensemble player.
