Various from young children to adult restarters, and from people just wanting to play for fun, to those seriously wishing to pursue a career in music.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I design lessons for each individual student depending on their aspirations. I am qualified to enter students for music exams and during the last 15 years have entered hundreds of students. I can also prepare them for concerts, recording studio sessions, etc., I understand that some people simply want to learn for fun! I have also taught many ‘restarters’ – e.g. adults often aged 40 and up, who wish to restart learning an instrument that perhaps they learnt as a child and then stopped for many years due to pressures of work and family.
