A Little About Myself

I began playing the electronic organ at the age of 6. My teacher was a lovely lady who always inspired and encouraged me. I try to follow this on by always emphasizing the importance of enjoying what you are doing.

By the age of 16, I had reached Grade 8 with the Victoria College of Music, London. I continue to use this exam board now, due to the encouraging and supportive atmosphere generated by the examiners. However i prefer the ABRSM for theory exams.

I have since studied the keyboard and piano, and have been teaching them for about 20 years. I also teach the theory of music up to grade 5, with a view that the theoretical knowledge is important to producing an all-round good musician.

I began teaching at about the age of 16, to help out my teacher who needed to lighten her work schedule. My students continually achieved high grades in their exams and so i was awarded my teaching diploma from the Victoria College of Music. This is a diploma awarded without examination but based on the results of a teacher's candidates. From this point i never looked backed, and a career in teaching music had begun.

I try to encourage extra music experiences with trips to the theatre, workshops etc. I have even taken a group of students to the Royal Albert Hall for a work shop run by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra! I feel it is important that my students get the opportunity to get together and meet other like minded people.
