Personal Description:

I am a freelance piano teacher, events pianist and composer, offering piano and music theory tuition to adults and children.

With fourteen years' experience as Teacher and Head of Department in London schools and music colleges, alongside peripatetic teaching, you can be assured of inspiring and enjoyable lessons tailored to your aspirations. Exams are not compulsory.

I teach on a beautiful top of the range Yamaha Clavinova, with height-adjustable bench. Lesson times range from 30 to 60 minutes.

Aside from teaching piano, I compose bespoke music for weddings and funerals, sometimes hand in hand with live piano performance, both of which I find very enjoyable and rewarding. I now offer tuition in popular and classical composition. Having recently collaborated with a musician in Belgium to create a full-length musical, I am now working on a steady stream of smaller commissioned works across a range of genres, from classical to Latin American, for piano to orchestra and band ensembles.

With eighteen years' piano teaching behind me, plus a lifetime's enjoyment of playing the piano, I look forward to teaching new repertoire, improving playing technique and sharing the joy of learning.

Tutoring Experience:

Twenty years peripatetic
Fourteen years in schools

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly, approachable and listen to your aspirations. Every lesson is tailored to you.

I have experience of teaching adults and children with additional needs, including (but not limited to) Autism, Asperger's, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia and physical health challenges.

Your first 30 minutes of tuition is complimentary.
