About

  • Teaching since June 1996

  • Teaches special needs

  • Teaches students aged 3+

I'm all about using music in self discovery and naturally for having fun. I've played piano, flute and piccolo for music theatre orchestras and sung in shows such as 'Les Miserables' and 'Lord of the Rings'. I've also had the opportunity to compose music for different community events from sacred music to multicultural.

Things like expression can be taught from lesson one. Students do not have to wait to play well. There is no one way of teaching. When something doesn't suit a student, we try another method. No genre is off limits.

I am an extrovert who loves laughing, but I can also be straightforward getting to the point while addressing fears from the beginning. I help students to recognise what they're doing well, what needs to be improved and how to improve it for themselves. It's important to know how to practise at home without damaging your body.
