Tutoring Experience:

I am an experienced and dedicated specialist teacher, with over 20 years experience of working in schools,my own private teaching practice and education projects. I actively seek and research new ideas and methods of teaching and continually work on expanding my own teaching resources so that I can tailor lessons to each individual's needs.

Tutoring Approach:

I work with students of all ages and abilities and I believe in having a fun and relaxed approach to learning. Whilst some students prefer to learn for fun, I am equally happy to prepare students for ABRSM and school exams and University or Music College entrance auditions. I have a 100% pass rate for students presented for ABRSM and SQA exams.
Ultimately, I believe that music can enhance a person's self-confidence and I encourage my students to develop their own 'voice'.
