Piano and Organ Teacher

I have had extensive experience as a piano and organ teacher of students of all ages and abilities. My work has included preparation for auditions, concerts and examinations, and I believe strongly in developing the talent and ability of each individual student to the highest possible standard.

Having taught students on the graduate courses at the RSAMD (now the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland) for some years, I am currently focusing on private teaching practice and specialise in teaching students of grade 6 and above to diploma standard and beyond.

I have a particular interest in piano accompaniment and encourage piano students to be involved in this musical activity as well developing their solo skills.

I have recently presented a series of Art of Piano Accompaniment workshops for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) for students interested in developing their accompaniment skills. These have been very successful and have received very encouraging feedback. I can offer similar group workshops to anybody interested in this activity.
