Personal Description:

Originally from Edinburgh, I am an accomplished pianist, singer and accordionist now based in Brighton. Having learnt piano from the age of 4 I achieved a BMus (hons) degree from the Ian Tomlin School of Music (Napier University) and went on to teach and perform for a few years before studying for a Masters in Music Therapy at the Guildhall School, qualifying in 2008.

I am a friendly, genuine and fun teacher and in my spare time I like to perform and arrange music with my acapella trio called "The Close Shaves"!

**DBS (formerly CRB) enhanced 31.07.13**

Tutoring Experience:

I have extensive teaching experience (over ten years) and divide my time between teaching, performing and music therapy, where I work with a wide range of clients with various difficulties. I also teach young people with moderate learning difficulties and run therapeutic singing groups for adults with dementia.

Tutoring Approach:

I cater my lessons to the abilities and interests of my pupils with an emphasis on enjoying all aspects of music making and musicianship. I have students from as young as 5 to adults, both beginners, more advanced students and those returning to learning the piano.

I have prepared pupils for ABRSM and Trinity exams (performance and theory) and have coached instrumental students in the aural and sigh-reading aspects of the examination syllabus. I have an excellent results record with most students gaining distinction or merit.
I have also coached students for school scholarship and entrance exams and for the local Springboard Festival.
