About Me

I have been teaching the piano, electronic keyboard and music theory in Brigstock since 1989 and welcome pupils of all ages and abilities from across Northamptonshire and beyond. The primary aim of my work is to train pupils to the highest possible standard within their own capabilities but the emphasis during lessons is always on learning through enjoyment.


I hold the Licentiateship of the Guildhall School of Music in piano teaching (LGSM) and the Certificate in Teaching from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (CT ABRSM). I am also a professional member of the European Piano Teachers’ Association (PMEPTA) and hold a valid Enhanced DBS certificate.

PIANO AND KEYBOARD LESSONS

Lessons of 30 minutes, 45 minutes and 1 hour duration are available. 30 minute lessons are best suited to younger beginners. Longer lessons are normally required from around Grade 2, when formal theory starts to be introduced.

THEORY LESSONS

Theory lessons can be booked independently from practical lessons or can be dovetailed to follow a practical lesson. In order to take practical exams beyond Grade 5 a candidate must also hold Grade 5 music theory.

Examinations & Results

Piano B&W

PIANO & KEYBOARD

Exam passes, both practical and theoretical, can provide valuable milestones for many pupils and the practice, where appropriate, uses the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music examinations service for piano and theory and the London College of Music examinations service for keyboard exams. However, pupils are entered for examinations only if they wish to be and then only if they are certain to achieve success.

MUSIC THEORY

Theory is a very important part of a musical training. It is the ‘written’ side of music and involves learning the ‘whys and wherefores’ of how music is written. It’s importance should never be under-estimated and it is worth noting that no-one may progress beyond grade 5 practical standard with the ABRSM without first gaining a grade 5 theory pass.

“Just a brief note to say an enormous thank you to you for all the superlative piano teaching for my daughters. They
have learned so much from you, and constantly draw on the knowledge and music appreciation that has become
inextricably woven into their lives as a result of your brilliant teaching. You are a star!”
