I teach Singing (classical, jazz, soul, motown, folk and pop), Flute and Piano (classical, jazz & blues) alongside Music Theory and Composition. I additionally teach Recorders and Musicianship to younger students who are not yet ready to start learning a specific instrument.

Additionally, I can work with students who require confidence building, technique & performance skills.

I hold Grade 8 in Piano, Flute, Singing, Theory, Percussion & Recorders.

- How much do you charge?

I charge a fixed rate of £28.00 per hour.

For the first lesson I offer students a discount - £10.00 for half an hour to see if they like my tuition before committing to further lessons.

Students in receipt of benefits or with financial difficulties can negotiate a lower rate.

- Where do you teach?

I teach primarily at my home address in Whitstable, Canterbury. There is a bus from Canterbury Bus Station leading onto Harbour Street in Whitstable (2 minutes from my house), a mainlain station nearby (Whitstable BR) and free parking on my street and neighbouring streets.

I also teach at the Simon Langton Grammar School for Boys in Canterbury one day each week and I am the Musical Director for The Oyster Singers in Whitstable.

I am currently in negotiations to travel to Kent University on Monday and teach there as I have several students who are on the Performance Course at the University.

Not all of these times may be available. Some are currently booked by existing students.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach very young children (3-6 years) musicianship which is a basic all round fun way to learn the elements of music and try several instruments.

I currently have 6 students aged 7-12 who are studying specific instruments and working towards Graded Examinations.

I currently have 15 students ages 12 - adult (up to pension age) who are studying advanced examinations (Grade 8 & Diploma) or performance / confidence building techniques.

If requested, I can enter students for ABRSM Classical Exams in Flute, Piano and Singing (Up to Grade 8 and Diploma Level), Jazz Piano Exams (ABRSM) and Trinity Rock School Exams for Keyboard and Vocal Studies.
