Personal Description:

*SPECIALIST PERFORMER AND ABRSM EXAM TEACHER*

I am a professional, qualified and experienced piano teacher teaching from my home in Motherwell with an excellent grand piano. (Due to my rehearsal and performance schedule outside of my private teaching work, it would be unwise to offer a come-to-you service). Although primarily a performer (accompanist, vocal coach, organist), I also have a passion for teaching all ages and levels and I believe I provide a very fine quality of service to all of my students. I am interested in continuing development both as a performer and as a teacher and so I am always working towards another professional diploma or related music examination. Please find out about my background in addition to further information about my teaching work below.

Qualifications include:
Licentiate Diploma in Pipe Organ Performance (91% pass)
Diploma in Piano Performance (97% pass)
Associate Diploma in Piano Teaching
Grade 8 Pipe Organ (with distinction)
Grade 8 Music Theory (with distinction)
Fellow of the Guild of Musicians and Singers

Services offered:
Piano tuition (beginner to grade 8 and above)
*Organ tuition (beginner to grade 8) - I own a three manual and pedal digital church organ
Music Theory tuition (grades 1-8)
Piano Accompaniment tuition
Repertoire coaching for singers
Accompaniment for singers, instrumentalists and ensembles
ABRSM Aural tuition (grades 1-8)
ABRSM Practical Musicianship tuition (grades 1-8)
SQA Music tuition (national 4/5 and higher/advanced higher)

Teaching/professional details:
I enjoy teaching in a friendly, encouraging and organised manner and although I like to specialize in students grade 5 upwards, I do take on beginners/pre-grade 5 level students also. I also take adult "re-starts" who often like a flexible approach to learning pieces they enjoy and love and learning a little about harmony and music theory, sometimes also some score-reading and transposition. I have an excellent record with ABRSM graded exams both in piano and music theory and can prepare students for all grades and diploma levels or for their own enjoyment through a structured, continually developing route of progress without the need for exams. I have studied at both Glasgow University (I was on the BMus specialist music performance course with an Organ Scholarship) and at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (studied as a training repetiteur in the Alexander Gibson Opera School).

I also prepare both pianists of other teachers and other instrumentalists/singers for both the aural part of the graded music performance exams and for the music theory graded exams (all the way up to grade 8).

I coach and accompany both instrumentalists and singers professionally in preparation for exams (both school curriculum and ABRSM/Trinity graded exams), performances and recordings. I charge separate fees for rehearsal, performance/accompaniment and recording time.

My teaching work also includes preparing students for university/conservatoire entrance auditions/theory examinations and I have experience in preparing B.Ed-Music candidates for most requirements of the entrance audition, sometimes in a shorter- than-usual period of time.

Some of my daytime work includes accompanying, performing, and coaching classical/opera singing students of advanced levels and playing for opera rehearsals. I can also be found conducting/accompanying for various choirs throughout Lanarkshire and sometimes appearing as orchestral pianist/keyboardist with amateur and above level orchestras and ensembles throughout Glasgow/Edinburgh.

I am also a keen organist and hold a permanent post at a Roman Catholic Church. I am currently working on a professional organist performance diploma. I have some harpsichord continuo experience also.

I also have experience of working in a secondary school as an instrumental instructor where I was also called in regularly to accompany a very wide range of skilled young performers. I hold a current full disclosure. I am also an assessor for ABRSM.

Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM)
