Personal Description:

I'm the director of Hampstead Music School and also a visiting teacher at Havana Music Conservatoire, Cuba. I have over 10 years experience teaching piano, cello and music theory to students of all ages and abilities.

My students are as young as 3 1/2 years to adult learners. Everyone learns at a different pace and responds differently so I have a flexible approach to each individual.

As an active performer, I perform regularly in venues including the Abbey Road Studios, Wigmore Hall, St.James's Piccadilly, St.Martin-in-the-Fields, the Royal Opera House and the South Bank Centre.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching piano, cello and music theory for over 10 years bringing a wealth of experience in teaching beginners to professional levels. I have also also been a guest teacher at the Havana Music Conservatory, Cuba giving masterclasses and previously taught at St Aloysius School.

My students range as young as 3 years old to adult learners. Students who have entered grade exams have all passed with either merit or distinction.

Tutoring Approach:

Lessons are structured to fit each student’s age, learning style and ability. I also put importance in having a balance between theory based learning and practical learning. I can specialise in preparing students for grade exams, auditions and concerts.
