“As a teacher I aim to provide an engaging and structured course of lessons that is tailored to meet your personal goals, whether you want to develop your technique, learn a song, prepare for grade examinations or simply enjoy a stimulating hobby. My approach to teaching combines both musicality and practicality, drawing from my own experiences as a professional musician, and with the enjoyment of playing music as a foundation.”
