I am a piano teacher and performer with 20 years of experience. I have a Doctorate from the University of Manchester in Music (Composition), and a Masters from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. I am currently a piano teacher at the UNIS Music Academy in Hanoi, Vietnam.

I teach all ages, from beginner to advanced and can accommodate most musical interests, whether that be performing, recording, composing or general musical understanding. If you're studying for GCSEs or A-levels and need some extra dedicated tuition, I can offer structured help around your syllabus.

I can help if you would like to take grade exams and theory, or would like to discover your own path.

Arrangements can be made for me to travel to you.
