Mission

My teaching aim is to kindle a lifelong passion and enjoyment of piano-playing through the development of all-round musicianship skills. Lessons aim to build skills, knowledge and insight logically and progressively, allowing pupils to develop the self-belief and self-reliance needed to access and engage in the extraordinary world of music-making.

My problem-solving, inquisitive approach continuously encourages pupils to draw on their imagination and intuition, and inspires each to take increasing responsibility for their own learning.

I strive to show every one of my pupils that something special lies out there if they are prepared to commit some time and effort.
