Tell me about your qualifications.

Throughout my career, as well as performing, I have taught at The Purcell School of Music for over 15 years, other schools in London, and currently teach at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. I was also an examiner for A.B.R.S.M for over 10 years, as well as being a mentor. Some of the most rewarding teaching has been my private practice.

I studied with Bernard Roberts (Piano) and Ruth Dyson (Harpsichord) at Royal College of Music.
After leaving college I was awarded an arts council scholarship to further my studies on the Harpsichord with Trevor Pinnock.

I am preparing students for A.B.R.S.M. exams and auditions for music college.
Do you have a personal message for students?
Throughout my career in teaching I have found that I get the best results when lessons are as enjoyable as possible. Laying the foundations of a good technique shouldn't prevent learning from being good fun.
