Personal Description:

My empathic and caring nature coupled with many years of experience teaching people of all ages and from all walks of life, ensures that you will receive a person-centred teaching programme tailored to your individual needs. I believe that humour, the ability to be flexible and a well thought out teaching environment all play an important part in making the learning process stimulating and enjoyable.
My life experience to date means that I have developed a 'wise' mind and an ability to reflect upon and improve my practice. The art of good teaching is about being able to transmit ideas, knowledge and skills in a such way that they can be understood and acquired with little effort on the part of the tutee, often subliminally. It is a gift, one that I feel I have nurtured and developed throughout my adult life.
I am a qualified and fully registered Music Therapist and an experienced practitioner in this field.

Tutoring Experience:

I have a 22 year career as a primary school teacher, specialising in the teaching of music.
My experience in instrumental tuition spans 25 years.
In my work as a Music Therapist, I worked a lot with individuals who wanted to sing and developed the art of teaching vocal skills through this and through attending various courses and workshops on the teaching of singing and how to lead choirs. I am a member of the Natural Voice Practitioner's network and also lead a small choir in my local community.

Tutoring Approach:

I am person-centred in my approach and adopt a flexible approach to teaching which takes into account the individual's age, personality and particular needs and wishes. I have had much success over the years in engaging both children and adults in the process of learning an instrument and have sustained many a successful working relationship making the learning process both stimulating and fun, using a variety of methods and resources.
