Learning with me

My teaching style is friendly and informal.  My hope is that music is enjoyable, relaxing and fun for all involved, even when it's being taken very seriously indeed!


As well as exploring a wide range of repertoire for whichever instrument  you learn, I also encourage you to develop a deeper understanding of music through listening to recordings, and I will help you build your performance skills and boost your confidence in playing with and to others.


I welcome pupils of all ages.  I've been an adult learner of music myself (I play the violin as a hobby), so I know what it's like to return to learning in later life.


I'm happy to welcome absolute beginners to music, as well as those who have some prior knowledge.


I have prepared candidates for examinations with the Associated Board, Trinity Guildhall, Rockschool and London College of Music.  However, some of my pupils choose not to take exams, preferring to concentrate on other outlets for their music.
