I teach at home but am willing to travel to students' homes in York. An additional fee for lessons in a student's home may apply, please contact me for further details.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught privately for many years. Latterly I was Director of Music at an independent school outside York, where I was responsible for all the music activities across the school, including instrumental lessons. I have played flute and piano in many different ensembles over the years. My recent playing experience includes classical concerts, bands and session work as a flute player.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes, I have an enhanced DBS.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained with John Barrow between 1985 and 2001 at Hudderfield Polytechnic and the University of York. John Barrow studied with Geoffrey Gilbert - one of the foremost flute players of the 20th century - at the Royal College of Music and has played in most British orchestras.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I belong to the Musicians' Union

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I teach piano/keyboard from 5 years and upwards. I teach children and adults (my oldest student is in their 80s!) and I teach all standards. I teach flute from 7 years and upwards. I teach children and adults up to ABRSM diploma standard. I have taught students successfully through diploma studies; one of my former students is now studying flute at a conservatoire in the UK.
