I believe music should be enjoyable, so I keep the lessons varied, with different activities and styles of music. I like to teach in a methodical and structured way, to give you a clear sense of direction and a sound understanding of the music. We will usually focus on learning by playing as much as we can.
In addition to using commercial teaching materials, I create my own, which means that I can adapt lessons to my students needs. I teach people in person at home and in schools, however I’ve found that online lessons have some advantages, such as:
· I can see, and advise on, your practise set up at home
· As the lessons are in your home, parents feel more involved in the learning process
· Parents have a better understanding of what their child is learning and can give better support between lessons
· There’s no travel for you or for me!
I began learning music as a child, playing and singing from an early age. I still regularly rehearse and perform in public in classical orchestras and symphonic windbands. I have given music tuition since I was a teenager, and have continued to develop my teaching skills since then.
I am formally qualified with the Certificate in Teaching of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (CTABRSM), and I’m a full Member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians (MISM). I teach piano, cello, violin and music theory.
