    I am a qualified and experienced piano teacher with excellent ABRSM results at all levels. I am on the Manchester Committee for EPTA (European Piano Teachers Association) and I organise informal concerts to allow pupils experience in performing. I have given recitals over the years at venues, including Chester Cathedral and the Bowdon Rooms. Many of my pupils have gained distinctions, both in their exams and in music festivals. I have been teaching piano and accordion since 1989 and have taught many adult pupils. I have also taught a number of pupils to play the organ up to the standard where they have been able to play hymns and music suitable for church services.

    Organ Teacher (Harrogate) Picture When I studied at the Paris Conservatoire, my love for Bach's work could really be explored. My favourite works have to be the 18 Chorale Preludes from Leipzig and the Orgel Buchlein. I think these works offer great depth of musicianship, emotion and perfection in the compositions. I also enjoy...
  • Switching from Piano to Organ Editor's Pick

    Organ Teacher (Birmingham) Picture Most pianists, if asked about the organ, usually respond "Oh, but I couldn't possibly play the organ!". To non-organists, it can seem a rather mystifying instrument, requiring two hands and two feet to be coordinated and offering an array of complications such as different keyboards (manuals)...
  • The Cinema Organ - the first 'virtual orchestra'

    Organ Teacher (Ipswich) Picture These mighty theatre pipe organs once were part of the cinema experience. Famous names such as Wurlitzer and Compton built amazing pipe organs, which thrilled thousands of movie theatregoers. These pipe organs were 'voiced' to imitate the symphony orchestra and were designed to accompany silent...
