Learning an instrument should be fun. I keep lessons lively and always make sure my pupils know what to practice in between lessons. I play and sing in lessons to demonstrate styles, techniques etc. I expect pupils to put effort in so that they can achieve their full potential. My teaching rates are competetive with an annual review each July. Travel costs are to be discussed. Please note, beginner and intermediate fees listed are for 45 minute lessons. Advanced and casual are for 1hr lessons.
