Personal Description:

I am a proffessional musician and music teacher living in Cheshunt in Hertfordshire with my wife and two sons. I love my work and am overjoyed to be able to share an enjoyment of music with others. I am patient and understanding and enjoy going on the journey of learning and development with each of the students I work with. I have a wide range of interests not only in music but in languages, cultures, history and many other areas so I can always find things in common with others.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching proffessionally for almost 20 years and have taught all ages from pre-school to retired individuals and all levels from complete beginners to advanced students. I have taught widely around the London/Essex/Hertfordshire but also have experience of teaching abroad. Other than music I am a qualified English as a foregin language and Japanese language teacher and have run training programs for businesses in the UK and abroad.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to music tuition is to use my many years of experience and the expertise gained in a flexible way which suits each individual student. No two learners are exactly the same and I am always looking for that key piece of information or that key approach that will help the student in front of my really advance in their studies. I am constantly refining and developing my methods too as I believe one who teaches well should be one who is always learning themselves. I always aim to impart a wholistic approach, enabling the student to become a truly rounded musician able to comfortably and confidently expresses what they want to play on their instrument. While enabling students to read music well when necessary I also train them to develop a good ear to play what they hear and be confident to make up music either on the spot or as a composition. I aim to enable them to become so comfortable that the instrument feels as though it is just an exention of their own body of which they have complete control. What a wonderful thing! I offer a £5 discount on all listed prices for students coming to me or for journeys of less than 15 minutes by car from me.
