I am a tutor of piano and organ based in Birmingham. I am also Assistant Director of Music at Birmingham Cathedral and Organist of the Blue Coat School in Edgbaston.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach Piano, Organ, Musicianship and Music Theory.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I obtained an MMus degree with distinction from the Royal Northern College of Music, where I won the Organ Recital Prize, and I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists. I have also held organ scholarships at Pembroke College, Cambridge, and Dunblane and Manchester Cathedrals. I have ABRSM Grade 8 with distinction in organ, piano and violin.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have a wide experience of training other musicians, including one-to-one teaching and in ensemble situations, involving both children and adults.
How much do you charge?
I charge £30 per hour or £20 per half hour. I offer one free consultation lesson per student.
Where do you teach?
I teach piano at my home in my Edgbaston, which is very near rail and bus links at Five Ways but also has unrestricted parking. I can teach organ in more than one location in or near Central Birmingham but it depends on the time of the lesson, so those interested in organ tuition should contact me to discuss this further.
When are you available?
My present availability for teaching piano is mainly Tuesday and Thursday mornings, though I am willing to consider Saturday mornings. My availability for organ teaching is more flexible but depends on the availability of the venue(s), so those interested in organ tuition should contact me to discuss this further.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I am happy to teach students of any age. As my present availability for piano students is mainly in the school day, I prefer them to be adult learners or those who are home-schooled. I will teach piano students up to ABRSM Grade 8. I will teach organ students to any level, including diploma level, but I prefer beginner organ students to have reached a level equivalent to ABRSM Grade 5 Piano before starting the organ. I will teach music theory up to ABRSM Grade 5.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
My DBS Certificate was last updated in July 2014.
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I belong to the Royal College of Organists, having obtained its Fellowship diploma.
Where and with whom did you train?
I trained with Anne Page at the University of Cambridge and then with Jeffrey Makinson at the Royal Northern College of Music. I now study privately with Gordon Stewart.
