"As a teacher, I have worked with students both young and old, on a variety of different styles. I have been teaching freelance for several years and also work for Roundhay Music service, YMES, Leeds Music Academy and MJP, as well as teaching in schools across Leeds and the surrounding areas. My teaching style is friendly and engaging but most importantly, it is always geared towards the students needs. I believe it is incredibly important for the student to take charge, with careful and considered guidance from the tutor. A good relationship with the tutor is essential. I would not be where I am today without the respect and appreciation I have had for my music tutors. I strongly believe that lessons must be as open as possible, where a student can approach me with any difficulties they are experiencing, thoughts or ideas they may have with regards to the Piano. A student with me will learn how to become technically accomplished, musically engaging and will develop a wider knowledge of Music history and the genre that they are playing."
