Personal Description:

I am a highly experienced busy musician, working as a teacher, violinist, and conductor. I am a qualified music teacher with a BA Hons, Masters and PhD.

Available for fortnightly and monthly lessons

If music is my passion then music teaching is doubly so. I guest lead various orchestras and conduct Stockport Symphonic Sounds as well as undertaking a wide variety of freelance performance and conducting engagements.

As well as teaching others I also love to learn and have successfully studied music as far as PhD level.

Tutoring Experience:

I have decades of experience teaching both privately and in schools. I enjoy teaching everyone: children or adults, and work equally happily with very young beginners through all ages to well beyond retirement.

Whether you are looking for a teacher to take you through exams and festival performances or perhaps you are a more advanced amateur player wanting assistance with orchestral solos or you just want someone to help you develop your technique so that you can enjoy playing more then I can help. And I offer my help with an encouraging smile and a sense of fun!

Tutoring Approach:

While I believe in instilling good technique I also strongly believe that music-making should be fun. I work from the premise that developing confidence is fundamental to all progress. Lessons are routinely structured to include scales, technical exercises, aural and theory knowledge, often culminating in pupils' own choice of repertoire to enjoy to round off the lesson.

Pupils are encouraged to practise daily, working through material in the same order as during their lessons. Once my list of practice items has been completed then I strongly encourage that pupils should play something just for fun: either their own choice of repertoire or improvisation.

The whole point of learning an instrument is so that you can make music with others and to that end I run a fun Strings Club for adult beginner to intermediate players.
