I teach singing, piano, recorder, theory and musicanship to adults and children of all levels of ability, in styles that include classical, pop and music theatre. As well as teaching singing I also provide piano accompaniment. Having sung with national opera companies and performed in concerts and music theatre I now specialise in coaching students for auditions and perfomances. I also have lots of experience preparing students for grade exams as well as teaching those who just wish to learn for fun.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I hold an ARCM (Associate of the Royal College of Music) in teaching. I studied performance at the Opera School at the Royal College of Music. I studied piano with Yu Chun Yee and Ian Lake (professors of piano at the Royal College of Music). I studied music theatre at the Actors Centre in London.

I have been performing professionally for over 35 years in opera, concerts, music theatre, pantomimes, TV and film with companies as diverse as the English National Opera, the Israeli National Opera, Covent Garden Opera House, BBC radio, La Scala (Milan), Earls Court etc. I have worked at English Martyrs Primary School, Hawley Infants and Kingsgate School for 14 years as a singing teacher, accompanist and recorder tutor.

When are you available?
I am available weekdays after 4pm, Thursday mornings and weekends up to 2pm. I also teach throughout school holidays.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I have students of all ages, from 5 to 95! I teach all grades in singing from total beginners to professional performers and have lots of experience preparing students for auditions and music theatre exams. I teach up to grade 5 piano and recorder as well as teaching music theory.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

St. Cecilia Conservatori, Rome, with Paolo Silveri. Actors Centre in London with various teachers including Mary Hammond and Mark Meylan. Piano at the RCM with Yu Chun Lee and Ian Lake.
Do you have a personal message for students?
My priority is to bring out the best in each individual student and to make our lessons as enjoyable as possible. I don't have a fixed teaching method but like to adapt to the interests and natural abilities of each student, so each lesson is an exciting experience for the student and myself.
