I can offer places to well-motivated adults and children, from absolute beginners up to those seeking music conservatoire and university entrance plus Performer's Diplomas.
|
All of my piano pupils are taught on a superb Bösendorfer grand piano in my studio at Leatherhead. Organ pupils receive tuition on first-class pipe organs by Harrison & Harrison, "Father" Henry Willis, etc., in Surrey and Middlesex (particularly the Parish Church of St. Mary, Twickenham).
Piano pupils enjoy performance and social opportunities at regular soirées, where they have played on superb grand pianos by Bösendorfer, Steinway and Fazioli before an audience of fellow pupils. Adult pupils participate in residential summer schools (e.g. Chetham's) and all may compete in the Reigate & Redhill Music Festival.
|
Organ pupils compete in the Croydon and Godalming music festivals with conspicuous success and often participate in the prize-winners' concerts. They are prepared for Royal College of Organists' professional diplomas and (in appropriate cases) for Oxford & Cambridge universities' college Organ Scholarships: e.g. Timothy Burke, formerly Senior Organ Scholar at Exeter College, Oxford (graduated with 1st Class Honours degree in Music and now Chorus Master at Opera North), plus Lawrence Thain (formerly Senior Organ Scholar at New College, Oxford and now Assistant Organist at Grace Episcopal Cathedral, San Francisco, USA). Former pupils in post currently as organ scholars can be found at Balliol, Brasenose, Pembroke and University colleges in the University of Oxford.
I am an ISM full member and am listed on the ISM Register of Private Professional Teachers. I have an enhanced CRB Disclosure.
