I started learning the piano from an early age, by performing at the Maidenhead and Slough Music Festivals. At the age of thirteen I won a top music scholarship to Downside School, near Bath. Whilethere I continued performing in music competitions in solo classical piano, jazz ensemble and saxophone (which I took up as my second instrument). I completed my graded exams at the age of fifteen, achieving a Merit with the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM).

I believe no two students are the same. We all learn in our own unique way and at our own pace, so I devise a piano lesson programme tailored to the individual's tastes and learning style. My lessonsare fun and enjoyable, and my aim is to make playing and learning the piano a rewarding and fulfilling experience. If you're looking to learn the piano, further increase your love of all things musical, or need a musician for your special day please do get in touch!
1 to 1 tuition is never going to be cheap, but my rates are very reasonable for what you are getting and it achieves so much that you can't achieve by teaching yourself or by internet lessons oryoutube videos. You can be of any age and a beginner, re starter or a more advanced player. If you wish to go the exam route I have a 100 per cent exam pass rate with many students attaining the higher marks of merit and distinction.
