Styles Taught

Classical, Folk, Rock, Pop


I teach piano to students of all ages and abilities. Many of my students have been through the ABRSM and Trinity Rock and Pop grade system whilst others learn purely for pleasure.

As a performer I began playing at festivals and competitions at a young age . I have have gone on to perform professionally both as a soloist and an ensemble player at events across the UK. In addition to my classical playing I also perform regularly in a number of bands playing folk, eastern European Jewish Klezmer, Gypsy Jazz and Jazz.

Teaching Style

My aim is to teach students to teach themselves because that is the key to successful practice between lessons. My teaching style is flexible according to each students specific needs

I encourage students to develop their musical ear through improvising and aural training. I feel it is important for students to have a good understanding of the historical background of the repertoire that they are learning and can recommend listening to help with this.


For piano and theory students I usually follow the ABRSM syllabus although this is negotiable.

For accordion students I can teach Trinity or the British college of Accordionists syllabi.
