Personal Description:

I started playing clarinet as a child and then later took up saxophone, achieving Grade 8 in both instruments before studying Music at university, where I gained a BA(hons) and then a PGCE.
I lived, taught and played music for many years in Rutland and then Cheshire before moving recently to Wissett near Halesworth in Suffolk.
I enjoy playing and teaching a range of styles, from classical to jazz to rock and pop and I have a wide and continuing experience of orchestral and ensemble playing, musical theatre and jazz, performing in big bands and swing bands.
I aim to pass on my enthusiasm and love of music to those I teach, young and not so young!

Tutoring Experience:

I have a wealth of teaching experience over more than twenty years. My students have ranged in age from seven to seventy plus and I have taught complete beginners to Grade 8 and beyond to Diploma level.
I have taught in primary and secondary schools, in both the state and private sector. Before moving to Cheshire I taught at the Stamford Endowed Schools (independent Girls, Boys and Junior) and at the Vale of Catmose College in Oakham. I have also always taught privately at home. I have prepared many students for music scholarships, as well as supporting GCSE and A level performances. I have also successfully prepared hundreds of players for ABRSM and Trinity grade examinations, with outstanding results.

Tutoring Approach:

I favour a student-centred approach and I want those I teach to experience as much joy in music as I do myself. I establish the aims and requirements of individuals and gain an insight into individuals' learning approaches, so that I can get the very best results in the shortest time.
I am as happy teaching complete beginners as I am teaching more advanced students and I strongly believe that age and lack of experience are not a barrier to future success in learning to play a musical instrument. Lessons may vary in length, from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the needs and ability of the student.
I happily teach a range of musical styles and I like to teach theory alongside practical learning in order to gain a more rounded understanding of music.
