Personal Description:

I have been actively involved in music since school and then later singing and playing piano , keyboards and organ in various groups such as function bands , cabaret groups , duos and rock bands where I gained many years of experience in live performance and studio work , at that time I also successfully studied piano,keyboard and church organ as well as music theory with the LCM and ABRSM.
I am a member of The Royal Society of Musicians Of Great Britain and a regular concert goer, I have seen many great artistes over the years including Simply Red , Paulo Nutini , Stevie Wonder , Abba ,Tina Turner , Jools Holland and The Rolling Stones . I love the great outdoors and like to go hiking and rambling mainly in the Peak District which is on my door step and also in the Lake District and Scotland. I am currently a member of 'Rock Choir ' which is very sociable and great fun.

Tutoring Experience:

I trained as a music tutor with Manchester University and London College of Music and The London College of Music and after qualifying in 1994 I started teaching mainly privately and with Tameside Music services in schools and colleges where I have taught all age groups and abilities from beginners to advanced. I also prepare students for GCSE and Btec practical work and I am an adviser and assessor for the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme , I hold a current enhanced DBS certificate and I am a member of the European Piano Teachers Association.

Tutoring Approach:

I keep up to date with the latest trends and developments in education and my students needs are tailored to suit their personal aspirations either at my home studio or online my main aim is for them to learn in a relaxed , friendly and professional environment . If students wish to take exams at any time in the future I use A.B.R.S.M. and L.C.M. exam boards. My philosophy is that music should be Inspirational , Educational,Exciting and Fun.
