Personal Description:

I'm a jazz pianist and music teacher based in Cardiff and Bristol, with a 1st Class Honours (BA) in Jazz Piano (Leeds College of Music) and an MA in Composition for Film and TV (Bristol University). I play regularly with my own jazz trio across the UK. I love sharing what I've learnt with people of all ages and am keen to inspire as many people as possible to play jazz! I'm equipped with a car for students who live further afield. If you're interested in having lessons in Jazz Piano/Composition please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Tutoring Experience:

I've been giving private piano tuition for the last four years. I've taught at the Yamaha Jazz School in Falmouth and at the Dordogne Jazz Summer School, giving one-to one lessons and workshops to larger groups. In Feb-March this year, I was employed by the Bristol Jazz & Blues Festival to provide Jazz/Swing workshops in over 30 Primary Schools in Bristol and South Gloucestershire, which was fun and LOUD!

Tutoring Approach:

I've always found that students learn best in a relaxed, informal atmosphere and I like to tailor my lessons according to the individual while still providing a good grounding of the basics. We all have common problems and challenges when it comes to playing the piano and I like to break these down and in a practical, fun way and I'm always looking to find new, creative ways of explaining things!
