Personal Description:

I’m a pianist, composer and educator based in London, leading my own projects, writing commissions and performing extensively across the UK and Europe. Teaching is a highly important part of my portfolio career, and a great source of enjoyment and fulfilment. I'm a recent graduate from the Royal Academy of Music with an MA (Jazz Piano) and LRAM.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been a 1-1 piano tutor for the past 8 years teaching students ranging from 7 years old to adults, beginners to current conservatoire students. Subjects covered include jazz/classical piano, music theory and GCSE/A-Level music support. I have taught through the entire ABRSM syllabus, and my students have a 100% merit/distinction result rate. My own personal studies have given me a flexible teaching style, with enthusiasm as the core value. I’m still practicing and have my own goals as a performer, and this desire to keep improving and discovering often transfers to my students.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning an instrument needs to combine rigour with some degree of fun in order to encourage regular practice and create the sheer enjoyment of playing, whether that be solo or group playing. Over the years I have been exposed to many tutors both inspirational and dull and therefore understand what encourages students and what hinders them. Being a young adult active in the music scene across the UK, I personally love all types of music, and enjoy seeing students progress and become more comfortable and natural with their instrument.
