Incorporated Society of Musicians
I teach from any stage; from absolute beginner to advanced students and am happy for parents to sit in with younger students.
You can book lessons lasting 45, 60 or 120 minutes.
Lesson prices are inclusive of any resources and refreshments that I provide; any additional resources such as musical equipment, books and additional music arrangements & compositions are available at an additional cost.
If this is your first lesson with me then I offer a 'Half Price Trial Lesson'. This first lesson is a chance for us to get to know each other, for me to discuss your personalised lesson plans with you and for you to decide whether I will be the right music tutor for you. This is offered on a no obligation basis.
My teaching approach is based around developing a comprehensive and personal training plan which suits your individual learning goals and aspirations, including what skills and experience you have and your wider interests.
I also offer paired/group lessons if such an arrangement is desirable. Please make this request clear when contacting me to arrange your lessons; so that I can make any necessary adjustments to my facilities in order to cater for your tailored needs.
Please do feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or visit the FAQ section of my website.
I am happy to provide remote tutoring sessions & travel a short distance for coaching purposes.
