I do teach at home in Wandsworth but am also very willing to travel to the students home if required.

Being a musician my timetable can vary a lot, but lessons can be arranged on a weekly basis. I am available to teach weekdays and weekends at all times, but sometimes flexibility will be necessary.

I teach all levels from beginner to diploma standard. I also teach all ages, my youngest student is currently four and my eldest seventy-four!

I frequently use the ABRSM exam board as I think that it has a brilliant syllabus and it is great to give the students motivation to practice. I have also had experience at Diploma standard with the Trinity/Guildhall exam baord.
I have also prepared students to do GCSE and A Level music.

I currently have a number of private students, all of which are of different ages and at different stages in their learning. I teach a number of young children beginner piano where my job is to motivate them into learning and practicing and I also have a number of adult pupils who need guidance in technique and finding new repertoire to learn.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I am very patient and dedicated to teaching and am looking forward to taking on new students.
