Personal Message
I have 20 years of experience teaching music to a wide range of age groups. I always develop a good rapport with my students, who consequently achieve their best.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
Piano, Music Theory, A level Music and Dissertation Proofreading (Music and History).
Tell me about your qualifications.
LTCL, Piano Teaching (1993)
BA (Hons), Welsh College of Music and Drama (1996)
PGCE (FE), University of Cardiff (1999)
What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching piano privately since 1996, I’ve been teaching music in sixth-form colleges since 1999, and I’ve been teaching in schools since 2003. In that time I have prepared numerous students for a wide range of exams, with an extremely high success rate. Some of my students have entered top universities and music conservatoires. But I also teach people who just want to learn for fun and don’t want to do exams.

As a performer, I have played piano or keyboards in many productions of musicals. In addition I have always been an active member of various local choirs.
How much do you charge?
£15 for half an hour
£30 for one hour
Where do you teach?
I teach at my home in Portchester (between Portsmouth and Fareham).
When are you available?
I teach during the day and evenings, from Saturday to Wednesday.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
For Piano and Theory I teach all ages from 5 years upwards, and all grades.

Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I proofread dissertations via email.
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
Yes, the Incorporated Society of Musicians and NASUWT.
