I have ten years teaching experience, with a strong emphasis or ear training and theory. I hold the Australian
AMUSA and Grade eight theory, (Australian standard) and BA. My students have ranged from beginner to
intermediate, ages five to forty, with a strong emphasis on beginners. I have taught in London UK, Canada
and Australia. My students benefit from encouragement and discipline, and although I believe it is important
to tailor lessons to my students current needs, especially adults, I encourage them to prepare for RC
examinations and ear training. The freedom they receive from learning improvisation skills and developing
site-reading techniques is key. I also emphasise developing the skills to practice correctly, therefore
accelerating their progress. Most important is that my students enjoy coming to their lessons, and find them
to be enriching, fun and encouraging.
