Personal Description:

After passing Grade 8 Violin (with Distinction), Grade 8 Piano (with Merit) and Grade 8 Music Theory (with merit), I went to Birmingham Conservatoire of Music and gained a BA (Honours) Degree in Music in 1987.
I spent 6 months in North East Iceland in 1990 as the music teacher in a boarding school. The work involved individual tuition and classroom teaching as well as conducting, accompanying for exams and concerts, some solo performance work and rehearsing 3 choirs. A great experience in all!
In recent times I was the fiddler in the folk band ‘Banksiders’ and a regular at folk sessions throughout the Derbyshire region. I also play folk fiddle for Barn Dances and Ceilidhs.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching for over 20 years. My instruments are Keyboard, Piano, Violin, Folk Fiddle, Viola, Music Theory and Recorder, and I have taught privately from home on a one to one basis and in schools in Birmingham, London and Derbyshire. My pupils have ranged in ability from complete beginner to those taking advanced grades, and have been all ages. The youngest was a beginner of 4 years old and the oldest a young 83!

Tutoring Approach:

I use a range of teaching aids and prepare students for ABRSM and LCM exams. However, I am also happy to teach people who want to learn simply for the fun of it, as a hobby.
My teaching covers many styles, from classical to popular. I also arrange pieces for students, especially if they want to learn a particular piece of music that is not readily available in sheet music form (by listening to CDs and writing down the notes).
Using a wide range of teaching aids such as tutor books, backing CDs, a music writing and arranging service , the lessons are designed to be enjoyable and inspiring.
