I teach piano and singing to adults and children. I work from home and from schools in Worcester.
All of my teaching is influenced by the Kodály Approach, as you would expect from the Chair of Communications at the British Kodály Academy!
My singing students all work through Go for Bronze, the brilliant musicianship course published by the National Youth Choir of Scotland.
My piano students use my own method books DoReMi Piano.
My approach to the lessons is informal and encouraging. Every student is different so lessons are designed and closely monitored to ensure enjoyment, progression and success. All my students, regardless of ability, have opportunities to play at one of the Express Yourself Spotlight Concerts giving everyone something to work for should they wish.
Some of my students enter grades, performance awards and theory exams in classical or popular styles. I have a 100% pass rate, with 80% of my students achieving distinctions. I prepare for exams with the following boards
Associated Board of Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM)
Trinity College London (TCL or Trinity Guildhall TG)
London College of Music (LCM)
Trinity Rock and Pop
