About

About

I have been a professional pianist and teacher for more than thirty years, having performed all over the world in classical, jazz, world music and pop genres.

I have taught piano for around 30 years in my own home, traveling to pupils’ houses and in several Primary and Secondary schools. I have also taught for many years in two Music Schools. More recently, I have been teaching online too using a multiple camera setup, including a camera placed directly above the keyboard. Having worked as a musician in many musical styles, I try to meet the individual needs of each pupil, whether they wish to learn classical, jazz or pop music.

I teach all styles to grade 8 level and above, and can enter pupils into ABRSM or Trinity classical or jazz grades, Rockschool or Trinity Rock and Pop grades etc. I also enjoy teaching those who do not wish to take graded exams, and I have a catalogue of my own written arrangements of Classical, Jazz and Pop pieces to suit all tastes and abilities. In addition, I can write a bespoke arrangement of any piece a student wishes to learn, tailored to their individual needs.
