My piano teaching career, alongside my music education career began in the mid 80’s after studying at the Royal College of Music, London. I have a diploma from the College in piano teaching, and the equivalent of a diploma in piano performing as part of my degree course. I am currently working in music education and take a few private pupils at home.

I have taught the piano to over 250 children, specialising in the 7-13 age range and teaching many from scratch. I conservatively estimate I have given over 24,000 lessons!

I believe the study of music teaches us a particular understanding of the self, as well as providing a unique form of expression, discovery, communication and enrichment to our lives. I also believe it has far-reaching and deep educational values, regardless of whether it is continued through life.
I try to maintain a positive and lively approach – if it’s fun for me, then hopefully for your child also! I do however like my pupils to be mindful that taking on any long and meaningful journey means taking on the lows with the highs. Achievement, progress, enjoyment and fulfilment will inevitably result through study and practice.

Did You Know Piano Facts


Temperament is both the process and result of making slight changes to the pitches of a pure musical scale, so that the octave may be conveniently divided into a usable number of notes and intervals. In the history of Western music's 12-note octave tradition, there have been several, fundamentally different forms of temperament applied to the developing keyboard. Music suffers when performed in a tuning that is different than that which the composer used in its creation.

Well Temperament Keyboards

Well Temperament Keyboards may be tuned so that all keys are musically usable, but contain varying degrees of the "wolf". This is the tuning used in this recording. Between the Early Baroque and Romantic eras, the popular tuning was something between Meantone and Equal Temperament. This era was a brief, transitional stage in temperament history, but considering the music composed during this period, its importance cannot be overlooked. This style of tuning is called "Well Temperament" following the use of the term by J.S. Bach. The term refers to a genre, rather than a specific temperament, as there were many Well Temperaments in use between 1700 and 1825.
