Personal Description:

I am a highly qualified performer and teacher with many years experience in the music business either on stage, on TV or radio. I'm a professional jazz singer & pianist, cellist, and a choral conductor, composer and musical director.
I have performed on 'Top of the Pops', and at top music venues such as The Royal Festival Hall and The Barbican. My music has been played on TV, radio, in theatrical and dance productions and at contemporary music festivals.
My students have included celebrities such as Joss Stone and sports presenter Gabbi Logan and **Contact Detail Removed** stars such as Jasmine Thompson. I coach students to successfully pass auditions for West End musicals and theatre schools.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been a self employed private music tutor since 1996.
I have taught at The City Lit adult education institute in Central London since 2010.
I was Head of Centre for The Centre for Young Musicians (Kensington & Chelsea) from 2006 - 2009 and have taught for many of Londons music services.
I taught singing to musical theatre students for their Diploma at CPS Studios in Romford from 2013 - 2015.
From 1999 - 2002 I was the singing coach and conductor for The Lambeth Education Action Zone Choral Project 2000, conducting massed choirs of 270 children on stage at The Royal Festival Hall, The Queen Elizabeth Hall and The Purcell Room.
I've also taught adult choirs such as The Sing for Pleasure Choir at Richmond Adult Education College in 2007 - 2008.
I have a current DBS check.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly, supportive and expert and my methods give great results every time.
My private students range in age from 6 to 82.
My students tell me that they learn more in 1 hour with me than months with other teachers! My many years experience as a teacher & performer enable me to help students achieve success with easy to follow, effective techniques.
I guarantee the best tuition with the best results every time with lots of encouragement.
Singers gain confidence & a fabulous vocal tone in any style. Songwriters can improve their songwriting and record a demo in my studio. Pianists and cellists can learn from scratch in any style they choose, or brush up their technique if returning to play after a few years. Read my testimonials from my students!
