Hey there! I'm a Bristol Piano Teacher and Music Tutor. I’ve been teaching music and performing arts for around 10 years now, and I love what I do. I’ve taught, written and worked for a number of Bristol’s leading Orchestras and Music Schools, including The Bristol Ensemble, Bristol Cathedral School & The Bristol Metropolitan Orchestra.
I work with individuals at all levels of music ability. My approach is truly tailored around my student, so lessons evolve around how you learn. Whether you are after a solid grounding in the fundamentals of Jazz harmony, Classical theory & composition or want to develop incredible listening skills, throughout my teaching I pursue each individual’s natural passions & talent, helping them to lay the foundations of musical awareness in a way that is natural to them.
Where do you want to go with your music? You can be sure that lessons will always be working toward your musical goals. As a teacher I strive to make those goals happen quickly and effectively. As such though, I require students to turn up with a strong idea of why they are there and what they want to achieve. Whether it’s to learn and enjoy music slowly & privately or to found your own orchestra – I don’t mind
Whilst I never force students to practise, I do focus a lot on how you practise. It may sound funny, but many of us are never taught how to do it well. Whilst we may be taught the instrument and the theory, my work I believe is different as I have a strong focus on how to practise more deeply & effectively and most important of all – how to keep on enjoying music!
