Personal Description:

I am a patient, experienced and qualified teacher with 26 years experience and have taught all ages, grades and abilities. I have a certificate of teaching and diploma of teaching from the Associated Board. Teaching is my job, which I am passionate about. I I also play semi professionally. Not willing to travel at the moment unless for a family booking. Travel time will be charged for.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught for 26 years now, privately, in school, for a music service and adult education. I have had good results in exams up to and including diploma level with ABRSM with a 100% pass rate and over 50% distinctions. I do want music to be enjoyable and rewarding though. My pupils have ranged in age from 5 to 76, catering for their individual needs! I use both Trinity and ABRSM exam boards and have helped several pupils gain music scholarships, Duke of Edinburgh awards and helped with the playing part of GCSEs and A level recitals.
I very successfully teach adults - with or without exams as an invigorating and enjoyable hobby.

Tutoring Approach:

This often depends on the person, but I generally have quite a structured approach, incorporating theory and aural into lessons. I am quite flexible in my approach and although I use exams regularly, my pupils do not have to take them if this isn’t for them.
I try to introduce lots of different styles and pieces into a pupil's repertoire though. Currently I have pupils working on Mozart, Beethoven, ABBA, Coldplay and The Greatest Showman! I want to keep lessons and learning fun whilst teaching a valuable life skill. And for those that wish to take exams, I try to help them get the best possible marks they can. ( with the help of regular practise!)

Recently I have had many requests from adults wanting to learn a skill they wished they had learnt whilst younger or wanting to revisit an old hobby. It’s never too late to learn and I encourage all to have a go.
