Personal Description:

I am a classically trained pianist and violinist with extensive experience in music education. I did my undergraduate training at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, and my postgraduate studies in jazz at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. I graduated from there with a Postgraduate Diploma in Jazz Performance.

I have been performing as a pianist and violinist on the UK jazz and Latin scenes for a number of years. I have worked with many internationally recognized jazz musicians including Gary Crosby, Julian Siegel, Omar Puente and Roland Perrin, and have performed at venues across the UK and abroad.

I run a private piano tuition practice teaching children (from the age of 7 upwards) and adults at my home in South East London. I work with all levels from beginners to advanced and all styles from classical to jazz.

Tutoring Experience:

I have worked for many years as a private music tutor with children across the age range from 5-18 years.
I have also worked extensively in community music and workshop settings with children in KS1 and KS2, and have led workshops for Early Years and Foundation Stages. Last year I was awarded funding through the Sound Connections Innovate programme, to run a series of creative electronic music workshops for 8-11 year olds.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach centres around developing a strong base of overall musicianship skills and fostering a love of music making. The children I teach learn how to read music, play by ear and improvise, and their creativity and musical ability is nurtured through the use of carefully chosen repertoire which is engaging and invites the use of the imagination.

Everything must be built upon a strong technical foundation and good habits need to be reinforced from the very beginning. This allows the students to develop the confidence to truly express themselves, and to explore the music to its fullest.

Students say that my lessons are engaging, stimulating and thoroughly enjoyable, and as every pupil is unique and has different motivations, goals and needs, I specifically tailor lessons to suit each individual.

My aims in teaching are that the student discovers a life-long love of of music making, develops sound musicianship skills and that they connect with the musicality within themselves- and the results speak (or sing!) for themselves…
