I am a pianist, performer, teacher, accompanist, with 40 years of professional experience. I was a performance scholar and prize winner at the Royal College of Music and have broadcast on Radio 3, appeared as a soloist at the BBC Proms and performed at all the major London concert venues as well as extensively through the UK. I began my teaching career in the Junior Department of the Royal College of Music and St Paul's Girls' School and now teach privately from my home in Putney. I have students who range from 5 to 85, from absolute beginners to diploma standard, and am happy to work with anyone who is willing to learn and can find some time to practice. I am classically trained and teach score reading to all students with the aim of making any pianist self-sufficient. As an ABRSM examiner I am familiar with the graded exam system and also teach theory up to grade 5. My work with ABRSM requires to hold an extended DBS certificate.

I am available as an accompanist both for grade exams and recitals and have extensive experience as a rehearsal pianist for choral societies. For the last 13 years I have organised a series of concerts at All Saints Church, Putney and details of these concerts can be found on Facebook under the Putney Knitting Concerts.

My current fees for lessons are £50 per hour or pro rata.
