Teaching Info

My lessons are effectively structured to the level of each student, appropriate to the age and experience of the individual, with technical skills and musicality as the central focus. Alongside this, the main aim of lessons is to develop a thorough understanding of music through playing and teaching necessary music theory, and most importantly to cultivate an enjoyment of music-making.
