I like to make sure we keep the lessons as enjoyable as possible. The way we will do this is by making sure we learn the music that you love and enjoy.

I generally teach all ages however, I would recommend young learners start no earlier than from the age of 5.

I have been performing live for over 30 years and would love to share my experience with you.

If you are interested in taking graded exams, this is something that I can help you with and guide you towards.

1 Hour Lessons


The majority of my students take one-hour lessons and this is because I believe this is the best way to see rapid progress in a short amount of time. I will personalise each lesson to you as well as making sure we learn all the essential theory and chords along the way.

About Your New
Piano Teacher

Friendly, helpful and focused on helping you to rapidly learn how to play the piano.

I have been teaching for many years and I will draw upon this experience to make sure you get the most out of every lesson. In my time playing and performing I have also gathered more than 30 years experience up and down the country.

The biggest aspect to getting somewhere when it comes to lessons is to enjoy them. With this in mind, I will always make sure my lessons are as enjoyable as they are informative so we can make some great progress together.

I will always talk to my students before we begin lessons about the music they enjoy and what you expect to get out of the lessons. Once we have established this I will then make a lesson plan that suits your needs well.

I am a music lover and this will always reflect in my teaching. When it comes to genres, I have no boundaries. Whatever you love we will always make sure and explore it when you are ready.

Location of Lessons

I am a mobile teacher which means I will travel to you for your lessons. I believe this is very important because it means you can learn from the comfort of your own home. From experience when you feel comfortable it is always easier to learn and make progress.
