Personal Description:

I enjoy teaching and learning most styles of music, both classical and pop/rock, and I have very wide tastes. I find it very rewarding to teach musical skills to people of all ages, and watch them progress and develop their talents.

Tutoring Experience:

I have a B.Mus honours music degree, and have been teaching privately, as well as in leading independent schools since 1993. I started out when I was young on Classical guitar, and then when I passed Grade 8, I then took an interest in Pop & Rock guitar. I also studied piano at university, and after a long gap, I took up the piano again in 2005, and passed Grade 8 a few years ago. I have performed in public as a singer-guitarist, covering a wide selection of pop music. In recent years I have also mastered the ukulele, which I find is great fun.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach one-to-one in a friendly relaxed atmosphere at my home, and all ages are welcome from young children to mature adults. Parents are very welcome to join their children if they wish. I cater for skill levels from absolute beginners to intermediate, from grades 1-5 on guitar, piano, and ukulele, and I can put candidates in for ABRSM and Rockschool exams, if they wish.

Lessons take place during the morning, afternoon and early evening on weekdays. Each lesson lasts for 30 minutes, but the very first introductory lesson lasts 60 minutes. I am afraid I can only accept cash payments.

Like most music teachers I have a cancellation policy: I will need 24 hours notice if you cannot make a lesson for any reason. At my discretion I may charge for the missed lesson at the normal lesson rate if 24 hours notice is not given. I may waive the cancellation charge if we can schedule another lesson within the same week as the one missed.
