Personal Description:

I have been playing diatonic harmonica since the 1980s. In this time I have performed at major blues festivals across the UK and at music clubs in Europe and the USA. I am a former UK harmonica champion and Vice-Chair for HarmonicaUK, the UK's national harmonica charity. I am Managing Director of Harp Academy (**Web Address Removed**), where up to 400 children aged 4-11 years are taught harmonica each week. I am also Producer for the UK's annual international harmonica festival, Harpin' By The **E-mail Address Removed**), and run harmonica workshops for adult players through the Harp Surgery website (**Web Address Removed**).

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching harmonica in Primary Schools since 2010, during which time I have personally coached several junior national harmonica champions. I run programmes for Pre-School, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, as well as after-school music clubs. Further details are **E-mail Address Removed**. I also teach 1:1, paired and whole-class harmonica for children online.

For adults I run weekly workshops through the Harp Surgery website. Further details are **E-mail Address Removed**.

Tutoring Approach:

Lessons are friendly, fun and structured to meet your requirements. My syllabuses and practical tips have been developed through many years in the classroom, working with players of every age and ability. I have a library of repertoire suitable for all levels and tastes, as well as exercises and music theory resources we can enjoy. We will keep your music diary, music sheets and sound files in a cloud drop box for you to access wherever and whenever you have Wi-Fi.
