My Teaching Style

I aim to give a bespoke service to my students. I adapt my teaching style to suit students interests, ability and goals. I see it that it is my job to help you reach your full potential and to have fun along the way!

For students who would like to do exams I help them prepare for classical, musical theatre or rock/pop exams (sometimes all 3 if they want) in singing up to Diploma standard or classical or rock/pop in piano up to Grade 5. I also teach Music Theory up to Grade 5.

I support my students to prepare for auditions, school qualifications and all styles of performances

My teaching approach is to be thorough, good-humoured and inspirational :-)
