I teach all ages and standards.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
On-line tutoring can take place in the evenings or on email basis, dependant on the students' preferences.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
Some teachers expect all of their students to practise everyday and to noticably improve from lesson to lesson, yet although this is ideal, it is not always realistic. I move at the pace of the student and I will push them if I believe they will cope well with the pressure.
I strive to put all students through ABRSM exams as often as possible, with both the classical and jazz syllabuses, to ensure progression.
I am friendly and down to earth, yet always produce the most from my students, which is reflected in my full timetable and waiting list of students.
