Learn music with me and become the best musician you can be!

Methodology

Learners set their own goals so they can get the most enjoyment out of learning music, and become the musician they want to become. My teaching has a strong emphasis on improvisation and composition so that students are encouraged to become musicians rather than solely music students.

Background

I am well qualified and have been awarded a distinction for a Master of Music Degree, first class for a BA (Hons) in Music, and a Distinction for a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Music Performance. I also have extensive professional performance experience.
