At present living in Penzance, working as teacher, composer and performer.

I have more than 30 years teaching experience, which includes accompanying and coaching students for GCSE /GCE and grade examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy teaching a wide range of musical styles. Beginners and advanced students are equally welcome.
Some students want to take grade exams, others to play by ear or improvise; there are many possibilities.
Together, we can discuss what we want to achieve and then enjoy the process.
