I am a Northern Irish freelance musician based in Stretford in Manchester. I enjoy all of what makes up my professional career, especially the variety of people I meet playing music and teaching.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
My main instrument is the cello, which I have played for coming on 20 years. I also teach the Piano, Percussion/Drums and Music Theory.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I studied for 6 years at Music College in Manchester. All of that time (and money!) got me a BMus and a Masters in Cello performance.

I also have a diploma in playing the Piano

Whilst I have no formal qualifications, I do play percussion and drums up to about grade 5 standard
What kind of experience do you have?
Started teaching privately in Belfast in 2004. Since then I have become:

Cello teacher for Yorkshire Young Musicians, RNCM Junior Strings Project and Trafford Music Service

Percussion/Drums and Piano teacher to several private pupils
How much do you charge?
For all instruments

30 minute lesson: £15
45 minute lesson: £20
60 minute lesson: £25
Where do you teach?
We are based in Stretford and prefer to teach at home, however I do teach in Cheshire, Lancashire and Manchester.
When are you available?
My timetable is very flexible as I teach alongside my professional freelance performing, so it would be easy to arrange a time which suits you.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach anyone above the age of 7, and every level.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I'm happy to help people prepare for music grade exams but if you would prefer not to that's fine.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I hold a valid CRB disclosure certificate.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I am happy to offer assistance with Sibelius notation software over Skype.
Tell me about some of your current students.
I currently have many private students of varying standards, and ranging in age from 12 to adults in their 50s. I very much enjoy the individual approach I can give to my students as no two are alike, which I feel is a fantastic way to explore the many differing ways in which people learn most effectively.
Do you have a personal message for students?
Anyone can play any instrument. You should play an instrument to enjoy it!
