Personal Description:

I am based in Pinner (Northwood Hills), Greater London and offer my services as a piano, singing, keyboard, theory of music and composition teacher to students aged 7 and above of any ability.

I can teach students of all ages, but have a particular specialism in teaching beginner piano/keyboard to adults.

I have two professional qualifications, these being a Bachelor of Music and a Master of Music degree both attained at the University of Huddersfield in West Yorkshire. For my BMus (Hons) I studied under Paul Wade (a retired tenor from Opera North) singing and vocal technique and have acquired a professional standard. For my postgraduate degree, I studied contemporary composition under Dr. Bryn Harrison and have had success with the performance of many compositions.

I am able to offer students assistance in preparation for GCSE and A Level music coursework and syllabuses. I have a particular interest in the music of the 20th and 21st centuries. Although my specialism is in avant-garde/experimental composition, I am also experienced and happy to guide students in any required style or genre.

I offer tuition to students of all ages and abilities and structure every lesson to meet the student’s requirements. I am of the philosophy that learning music should be fun and therefore it matters not if you wish to study for the nationally recognised ABRSM/Trinity examinations or whether you prefer to study for your own personal enjoyment.

Tutoring Experience:

I have over 20 years' experience of teaching children and adults provided in both London and Yorkshire. My experience was attained before I was a music student from my parents house in Harrow, where I undertook private pupils studying piano, organ and singing and when I moved up to Yorkshire (firstly in Leeds, then Huddersfield and Ilkley), I have continued to teach. In 2012, I returned to Harrow to continue with my previous successes.

Tutoring Approach:

I am happy to teach with a view towards taking recognised examinations or simply for your own enjoyment and personal fulfilment. I teach at a pace which I feel the student is able to understand and where sufficient evidence is shown in tackling the intricacies of the technique being taught.
