My Personal Profile Outline
I have studied music to degree level (including two diplomas) and have gained a wealth of experience playing live music on piano and electronic keyboards for twenty five years as well as twenty years on electric and pipe organs. My study has included history of music, music performance skills, improvisation, composition and arranging, as well as musical production and technology. I have acted as an accompanist and as musical director in shows as well as arranging concerts.
Whatever your background, I am prepared to teach anyone who is willing to learn. I have taught students with specific disabilities including autism and being partially sighted. Also a 93 year old! And adults who have never played before, why not give it a go - you may be pleasantly surprised!

My ability to instruct pop, classical, jazz, r&b, blues and other genres will give students that extra edge enabling them to become proficient in a variety of musical tastes and styles. I will be able to teach you any style of music you wish! Whether you are keen to progress through exams or play for general pleasure, I will guide you along with patience, encouragement and understanding. I have been DBS checked for your peace of mind.
I have lived at the foot of The South Downs near Alfriston for the past thirty years. I have taught students with varying abilities in the Alfriston, Eastbourne, Newhaven, Peacehaven, Polegate and Seaford areas.
I hope that you will enjoy learning to play your piano or keyboard. It should bring you years of pleasure.
