Personal Description:

I love working with music and sound - playing the double bass and bass guitar, teaching, composing, sound engineering and producing. I enjoy a varied professional life in all these fields.

I have been in the music and sound profession for over 20 years’ and was playing, composing and recording music for 10 years before that. My performances have been in a variety of genres and in bands, ensembles, orchestras and music theatre, and I have worked on sound for successful films and numerous music recordings. I began teaching in 1997 and my qualifications include a MA degree in Music Performance and a BA degree in Music.

All these elements of my life and career in music and sound are entwined and each element compliments the others. I feel so fortunate that I have had these amazing experiences and achieved all the wonderful things that I have done in life. I look forward to many more such experiences and in helping you achieve your best in making music and recording.

Tutoring Experience:

I have 20 years work experience as a music teacher, working in music services, schools and privately. My main instruments are double bass and bass guitar, I also teach music theory, composition, sound engineering and production and music technology. In addition I have led music ensembles and also have experience teaching at Key Stage 2.

I previously worked with West Sussex Music for 5 years, between 2008 and 2013, teaching individuals and small groups in schools and in music centres. I assisted teaching classes for Key Stage 2, delivering whole year group lessons on music and learning the guitar. I had great fun composing and developing educational material for these classes and all my students. I also led the Worthing Adult Ensemble where I arranged and composed much of the music used. 

Tutoring Approach:

I passionately believe that we are all capable of learning music. I also firmly believe that we all learn in different ways. As a teacher it is my job to find out how each student best learns and teach them in this way. The most important thing is the student and I’m here to help them. I strongly feel that it is vital to accommodate the needs and abilities of all learners, making the experience enjoyable for all.

Furthermore, I teach my students how to teach themselves which empowers them to understand, not only how to play a musical instrument, but also to understand how music and the instrument work. The student can then, not only play specific pieces, but step into their creativity and express themselves through music.
