- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
Most of my students learn for fun, but I am happy to help students prepare for ABRSM or Trinity Guildhall grades if they wish.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
My lessons are tailored to suit the student's individual requirements, and can include all aspects of musical learning in a practical and informal way while working on Instrumental technique, ear training, improvising, theory and music reading.
I incorporate the use of simple well know tunes early on in the learning process and playalong books with backing CDs to ensure lessons and practising at home are more enjoyable. I give students notes from each lesson to aid practice at home.

I have been teaching for just over 2 years and am an experienced performer.

I studied Jazz at evening class for 3 years as well as various workshops.
I come from a very musical family and studied classical piano and flute.
- Do you belong to any professional organisations?
- Tell me about some of your current students.
I have some students who are complete beginners through to intermediate students learning how to play by ear, without music and improvise.
One of my students (who is a rhythm guitarist) has recently surprised and delighted his band mates by producing and playing his tenor Sax after just six months of tuition (from complete beginner).
