Personal Description:

I have been performing professionally for 26 years and teaching for 18 years.
I was initially taught piano by my grandfather, the renowned concert pianist and head of piano at RSAMD, Jack Wight . I then completed my studies under Ms Anna Rastopchina. I currently play in an 8-piece function band as well as a jazz ensemble. I am also the musical director for shows held in the Clyde Auditorium and the Dumbarton theatre every spring.

Tutoring Experience:

I teach piano & keyboard to all ages and stages. Roughly half my students study for the ABRSM piano grades, and so far my pupils have a 100% pass rate. My other students play for enjoyment, learning various styles and technique.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach classical piano, jazz, pop, blues and music theory. I tailor all lessons to the individual needs and aspirations of the student, employing various teaching styles. I also teach some pupils to play by ear, as well as improvisational skills, if requested. I prefer to teach from my own house, where I have a beautiful Yamaha piano, keyboards and recording equipment.
Lessons are generally an hour long, except for young students, where I would recommend a shorter lesson.

I offer a free introductory lesson/consultation to all new students.
