I consider teaching and performing to be related and equally important in my life as musician. My experiences as a performer feed back into my teaching, and at the same time I am continually learning myself from teaching others. I am a strong believer in the wider value of music lessons: not everyone who takes lessons will go on to be a full-time musician, but the benefits of learning an instrument are available to everyone. Music has the capacity to teach social skills that are undervalued and under-taught in schools such communication, expression, personal application and practice. More importantly still, it leads to an appreciation of a different type of learning that is undervalued in Western education - that of learning not merely through understanding but through DOING. Music is not just about knowledge, it is about experience. It provides a very personal and unique type of fulfilment and satisfaction, at whatever level it is being studied.

Things I can help you with at all levels include: instrumental technique, rhythm, improvisation, playing by ear, tone, performing, notation, sight-reading, aural musicianship, harmony, theory, exams, choosing an instrument, mouthpieces, reeds, and more...

I perform regularly with many groups in London. As well as teaching privately I work in several schools in north London.
