My teaching: I specialise in teaching beginners and also teach more advanced pupils. I aim to lay good foundations of technique, musicianship and notation-reading to enable pupils to play well and enjoy their playing.

I also use musical games to enable pupils to learn while having fun.

My pupils may may enter festivals / take exams  (one of my pupils achieved the exceptionally high mark of 140 out of a possible 150 for her grade 1) but do not have to.

I am also willing and able to help pupils prepare for eg. cub  badges etc. and I have experience of teaching teenage pupils who learn an instrument as part of their Duke Of Edinburgh awards.

Biography: I have been involved with music from an early age, at school and in youth orchestras. After gaining ‘A’ Level music at NEW College, Bromsgrove and being awarded ABRSM’s Laura Marco prize for the highest Grade 8 flute mark of the year in the country, I studied flute and piano at music college, full time (Welsh College Of Music And Drama, Cardiff where I was awarded the Principal’s Prize, and a postgraduate year at Trinity College Of Music, London), achieving two graduate-level performance diplomas. I have been a visiting instrumental teacher at two schools and also have experience of teaching adults.

I maintain a very keen interest in classical music, playing in local concerts as soloist and as chamber musician and attending concerts and masterclasses. I enjoy collecting sheet music and books on music. I am an Associate member of EPTA (European Piano Teachers’ Association).

I hold an annual pupils' concert.
