I specialise in teaching students with active minds who need to be engaged in different learning activities throughout the whole lesson. I take children as young as 5 and they learn as they enjoy listening games, quizzes, flash cards, singing and playing duets.

The Acti-Learning Method is a modern approach that uterlises the range of active learning methods and educational apps available on ipad. My lessons include traditional teaching methods of technique, tonality and coordination combined with learning activities that are designed to support the learning of sight reading, music theory and aural. All students will be taken through the initial beginner level and then be entered into Grade exams from Intial - Grade 8 with the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) or Trinity College London.

Where and with whom did you train?
I studied Advance Level Piano technique at West Wickham Music School under Mihnea Racoveanu.

I went on train in advance Piano at Kingston University London. I also studied instrumental teaching in piano at The City Literary Institute in London. I then trained towards an ATCL Performance diploma under Waka Hasegawa.
Tell me about some of your current students.
I enjoy all of students for their unique talents. I currently teach over 30 students a week in schools and I have a lot of experience giving students the best possible experience in their music education.

Whether beginners or advance players I try to ensure they enjoy their musical journey as much a possible. I provide regular feedback in the form of assessments; in line with the music curriculum. I also motivate my students to achieve well in music grade exams and music festivals. My most hardworking students have their best recordings uploaded on this site. Please take time to listen to their hard work!

I teach creatively, so I use a range of activities in my lessons to keep students engaged in learning. We use flash cards, have music theory quizzes and play music ipad games. I want the student to feel like they are exploring a musical world, while having fun and learning a whole lot. I try to avoid lessons where the student spends the whole time going over the same song.

It is important to me that my students become fluent sight-readers and learn to read notes impulsively. Although some students are more visual than others, I know that sight-reading is a crucial part of learning the instrument. But music reading doesn't have to be stressful or hard!
Do you have a personal message for students?
Exploring Music will always be a great experience.
