I am an experienced teacher of Recorder and piano. As a child I fell in love with the recorder at the age of 7 after hearing Franz Bruggen. I attended the Royal Academy, as a Junior Exhibitioner, where I studied Flute and Piano. The Recorder was not recognised as a serious instrument in the 60s and 70s unfortunately. I gained my grade 8 Flute at the age of 14 and the Grade 8 Piano at the age of 18.
After that I went to Exeter University where I studied Music, and rediscovered the Recorder and I followed that with the Postgraduate Early Music Course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where I studied Recorder. The following year I trained at the Institute of Education where I gained a Post Grad Cert Ed, and I started taking recorder lessons and playing in master classes in Holland, Norway and London.
I have performed and taught widely. My teaching opportunities have taking me into Primary, Secondary, and Private Schools and Specialist Music Schools. I taught at the renowned Centre for Young Musicians for over twenty years, and at the Pimlico Special Music Course for 24 years. I also taught piano at Pimlico. In addition I have a thriving private practice.
My latest enthusiasm has become the clarinet after attending Klezfest last summer. Having started learning from scratch at the beginning of September 08, I am now working on my Grade 6 and hope to take my grade 8 within a further year and follwo that with a diploma. I have had a very good teacher for this, and so have a good understanding of the technique, and feel well able to add this to my repertoire of subjects.


Aimed at: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.


Fees payable at the beginning of each half term
24 hours notice of cancellation of an individual lesson.
Half a term's notice of stopping.
When I travel elsewhere to teach there will be an extra charge dependent on the distance and my travel expenses.
I refund when I am unable to teach and expect the courtesy of decent notice when a student is unable to come, in which I will make every effort to find another time for the lesson, but this cannot be absolutely guaranteed.
