Personal Description:

I currently work both as a piano tutor and performer.

Within in the last year I have accompanied Bangor University's Music Society Choir, and played a regular slot at Penrhyn Castle. I also do community work regularly.

I graduated from Bangor University with a BMus (hons) in 2007, and gained an MA degree in 2010, I have been having music lessons of some sort since the age of 4. (Having learnt to read music from age 3 and picking up the recorder, I then went on to have Violin lessons from age 4 and then Piano from age 7.)
I am classically trained, but like a broad range of different musical genres!

I currently also work as a support worker in Bangor University, usually in the Music Department.

Tutoring Experience:

I have only been in the private tutoring field formally for just under 2 years, although I have had previous experience of teaching a few people on a casual basis. Two of whom had never read music before or played any instrument, and the third was a singer looking to do a PGCE and wanted to pick up some piano skills for use in the classroom.
I am currently teaching a varied range of students - starting from children of both primary and secondary school age, who hope to progress through the ABRSM grade system over the years. I teach a few more serious University student-aged people who are hoping to enhance their job prospects in the music industry.
I also teach a selection of older learners on a both casual and more formal basis.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a completely tailored approach to teaching. Whether you are starting from the beginning and wish to make your way up the ladder, are starting again after a break; whether you'd like to pick up a few tips and basic knowledge in preparing to become a classroom music teacher, or you just want to learn for the pure fun of it!

I am willing to accept all ages, but generally recommend that pupils for piano start at age 7 (if younger, then they need to have hands large enough to fit the keys of the piano adequately) Parents of younger children are welcome to enquire.

I cater for all levels, from beginner to advanced.

I also particularly specialise in the "older" generation, by which I mean adults who maybe wish they'd learnt when they were younger, but never had the chance/opportunity/time. There's never a better time to start than now, and it's certainly never too late!

You can even come just for Theory lessons! If you've forgotten something you've learnt previously, or you just want to learn how to read music generally, Up to Grade 5 Only.

Lessons can be taken in either 30, 45 or 60 minute sessions, and can also be block booked in advance. (Term time for school age, and blocks of 5 or 10, or even monthly for adults)

I am based near Menai Bridge, and am currently just teaching privately from my house.
