Enhanced DBS certificate / Professional member of the ISM
I am extremely passionate about teaching and about developing all-round musicianship. A most enjoyable and rewarding part of my music career, now spanning over 25 years, involves helping pupils to develop their skills and gain fulfilment in the field of music, through their favourite genres and styles.

However, my tuition is very much tailored towards the progression and goals of each individual, and what is right for them at the time.
