- I offer piano lessons from beginner to diploma level and teach classical, jazz and contemporary styles. I have been playing the piano for many years! I'm equally conversant with figured bass and chord symbols as I am playing by ear or with notation. My inspirations are Barenboim and Petrucciani, to name only two...
- I also offer organ lessons to diploma level - at your church organ of choice or by arrangement at St. John the Baptist, Berkswell. I trained as an organ scholar at Downing College, Cambridge University. My principal teachers were Susan Walsh, David Wetherall and Peter Hurford and I adore Bach.
- I teach theory up to ABRSM Grade 8 and composition (GCSE, A Level, Degree). I taught music across the age-range in schools for 10 years, followed by 24 years experience teaching/managing in Higher Education (specialising in composition, performance and choral pedagogy). Over the last four years I have been working as a peripatetic music teacher and composer.
