Personal Description:

Hi there. I have a music teaching qualification (LTCL), and a BA (hons) 1st class from the Birmingham Conservatoire. I studied Performing Arts at the Mountview Theatre School in London, and undertook a Masters Degree at Manchester University. I teach at Leeds College of Music as well as privately at home and I perform regularly in ensembles Key Largo Trio and Vesper Walk.

Tutoring Experience:

I have a wealth of piano and vocal teaching experience, working with students of all ages and abilities, from the raw beginner to the advanced diploma student. As a singer I specialise in Musical Theatre and Pop styles. In piano I teach Classical and Pop. I have an excellent pass rate in entering my students for ABRSM graded exams, from Grade 1 – Grade 8 and diplomas. This includes jazz exams and music theory. Many of my students perform regularly at concerts and festivals. More importantly though, all my students thoroughly enjoy their lessons.

My teaching career has also included holding workshops at the Access to Music colleges. I have also designed and delivered music workshops for children exploiting the numerous beneficial effects of music exploration on the child’s educational and social development. Indeed whilst volunteering in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco and in Kathmandu, Nepal over the last few years, l’ve been delighted to hold music workshops with the local children, promoting the use of song and movement to aid learning and team work.

Tutoring Approach:

Whether its piano or vocal lessons you’re taking, my priority is to provide inspiring tuition to develop your enjoyment and appreciation of music. As a highly qualified and experienced teacher I provide lessons which are carefully, logically structured. Each lesson includes full feedback on progress and advice on the exercises and aural skills, as well as the musical repertoire, appropriate to the standard. Suggestions for further listening and reading are offered within the scope of the tuition.

For those students who wish to do so, you can be entered for ABRSM or Trinity Guildhall graded exams. In 20 years of teaching, my students have an excellent pass rate from grades 1-8 and diplomas. People of all abilities are welcomed from the raw beginner to the post Grade 8 experienced musician wishing to hone their skills still further.
