Style of Teaching:

With all my pupils, I develop their understanding of the musical language (ear and aural training) which instantly supports their instrumental skills, musicality and performance presence. This way their progress becomes smoother and more fulfilling. Some of my students have been special needs children (Autism, Attention Deficit Disorder and Dyslexia) and all have grown positively through Music. I love working with youngsters and adults.

Lessons with me are:
- Encouraging
- Structured
- Fun
- Progressive
- Positively challenging

In addition to my teaching commitments I also perform as a soloist and chamber musician. I enjoy performing all repertoire from the Baroque to the Contemporary. Other projects I am working on are an album for Children (CD) and a children's book with a musical twist.
How much do you charge?
The cost of lessons ranges from £24.00 to £30.00 (per 60 minutes pro rata) depending on what the pupil is looking for.

* Prices for home visits are £22.00 for 30 minutes, £30.00 for 45 minutes, £40.00 for 60 minutes (London).
Where do you teach?
I am mobile during school hours to teach children who are educated at home. Areas I cover are: Mossley, Stalybridge & Ashton-Under-Lyne in Tameside, and parts of Oldham - Lancashire and Cheshire.

I also travel to Liverpool to teach - please contact me to see what we can arrange.

The Fiore Music Centre is in Mossley, Tameside (Sunday afternoons) - Lancashire

I teach one-to-one in Mossley and have my own teaching space. It is a clean and secure room in which for he pupil to learn. I have public liability insurance which is provided by the Musicians Union.
When are you available?
North West:
Monday to Thursday and Sundays - morning to evening.

London:
Fridays and Saturdays - afternoons and early evenings.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
Ages 5 and upwards. Please see above for the levels I teach.

- Master of Music Program - University students (exams and performances)

- Auditions (for Orchestras, Festivals, Music Schools)

I am also happy to teach pupils who wish to learn for their own pleasure (without the pressure to take exams)
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes - I hold an Enhanced DBS certificate.
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I am a member of the Musicians Union - www.musiciansunion.org.uk
Where and with whom did you train?
Chethams School of Music (Manchester) 1995 to 1999
Trinity Laban Conservatoire (London) 2000 to 2002
Royal Northern College of Music (Manchester) 2002 to 2004
San Francisco Conservatory of Music (USA) 2005 to 2007
Tell me about some of your current students.
My current students are aged from 5 and to roughly 70. Some of them are working towards performances, exams and/or auditions and others are learning for pleasure.

Exams and Festivals:
My students have all achieved a minimum of a Merit for formal exams, Highly Commended & Distinctions in Festivals, First Classes & Class 2 Division 1 (University Degree students). One of my students (7 years old) was recently awarded joint first prize with a 16 year old in the Cheshire Arts Festival in May this year.

Twice per year I organise a concert at a local church for my students to perform in. Everybody is given the choice as to whether they want to perform or not and so far all my students have shown enthusiasm and performed (age 5 years plus).
Do you have a personal message for students?
Being educated in the musical language and being given the chance to learn an instrument changed my world from the beginning. For me, Music has given me endless fulfillment - it will do the same for you because we all have music inside us.
