Tutoring Experience:

35 years and still interested in learning new methods myself!"

Tutoring Approach:

I am passionate about teaching; it is my vocation and every person is a unique individual and treated as such. Music for me is a living language to be enjoyed and shared. I teach the whole storyv i.e. what is behind the music including theory emphasising its practical implication. Those students choosing to take exams receive additional free support as the time approaches. Above all it is fun!
