Music is my greatest passion, so I am happy to teach anyone of any age and skill level. Regardless of how 'serious' a student is, as long as there is enjoyment in playing I believe I can help improve their technical skill, mature their musical ideas and aid in their practice.
For young beginners I typically start with scales and Suzuki pieces which are simple and memorable. If desired, I will eventually move them onto the ABRSM syllabus.
For more advanced students who are very invested in music we work through advanced scales while always having on hand a study and suitable piece to work on.
I have gotten to enjoy being a teacher for several years now and my experience includes private teaching, numerous projects with primary schools to introduce music to young children and coaching chamber groups. I currently have seven students ranging from beginner to advanced levels and have helped them through their ABRSM grade exams, improve their skills (whether they play either as a hobby or more seriously) and practice more efficiently.
Having been an orchestra leader of several groups and toured/ given recitals in Hong Kong, Europe, England, Israel and New Zealand, I am well experienced in preparing for competitions and concerts.
I was a student of the music specialist school Wells Cathedral School and then continued my studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
I offer to travel to the students home within reasonable distance. I also offer lessons via video call.
