Tell me about some of your current students.
All my students pass exams usually with merit or distinction - I have never had anyone fail an exam.

I've learnt it's important to gage pupil's receptiveness/concentration/enjoyment during lessons,they learn more effectively if they are relaxed, happy, curious, enthusiastic and inspired.
Do you have a personal message for students?
Learning an instrument is an invaluable experience which will nourish you for life. Music is another language, but goes beyond words - it is a deep form of self expression which is unique to each individual.I would like to facilitate this gift in each of my students with warmth and humour, so that their experience is enjoyable and effective.
