Since graduating from Edinburgh University with a BMus (hons) in 2005, I have been teaching privately both children and adults. I believe learning the piano should give the student an all rounded musical education. Therefore my lessons usually include a certain amount of theory and history (of course not at the expense of the piano!) which I believe helps my students to understand what they are playing and to play it better.
In early 2010 I started up Cactus Music School which runs music workshops for children during the school holidays as well as adult evening classes with a bit of a difference.
I have also held music after school clubs at my local primary school as well as taking part in community music projects in schools and children's hospital whilst at university.
I am very enthusiastic about the piano and hope that my students will take some of that enthusiasm with them at the end of every lesson. My lessons are fun (if you have practised!) and always varied. I have a very high exam success rate and very loyal students who have been coming to me for many years. All my students have taken ABRSM exams and achieved well deserved high scores. I have also worked with students with learning difficulties.
I teach from my home in Maida Hill in a designated music room. I am potentially able to travel to students at a higher rate within Westbourne Park, Notting Hill, Kensington, Maida Vale, St Johns Wood and Kensal Rise.
