I have pursued a passion of spreading classical music to others through teaching, and have 7 years’ experience teaching clarinet, piano, saxophone, recorder and theory to all ages, from 5 to 75. Location: I will happily travel to teach at pupils’ houses around Cardiff, or I can try to accommodate pupils at my flat in Cardiff Bay where I have a digital piano, or at a local music studio. Teaching Style: I am very flexible with how the pupil enjoys learning music & try to work out the best solution for each individual. The majority of my pupils take ABRSM exams once they have reached the requisite standard, but I also teach people who are learning just for fun! All ages & standards are welcome, and I am more than happy to work on whichever styles my pupils prefer, be it classical, jazz, film tunes or Klezmer!
I provide a broad teaching curriculum, focusing on developing technique, musicality, scales, theory & aural simultaneously, to encourage the development of the pupil not just as an instrumental player but as a musician. This provides a solid, confident base for them to then progress easily from.
Every lesson focuses on a variety of styles of repertoire, music fundamentals, and development work tailored to each pupil. I always encourage pupils to take an active role in their choice of repertoire.
I accompany my pupils in lessons & when they take exams, so they can experience the fun of playing as a group, and get lots of practice playing with a piano before events. I also regularly play aural tests on the piano for my pupils.

I truly believe everyone can learn an instrument & experience the joy of making music! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions!
