Detailed Information


Making music is the activity about which I have been most passionate throughout my life, and since January 2000, I've discovered a similar passion for teaching.  Although I've taught music on a one–to–one basis at various times in my life, it's been since then that I've had the most interest and commitment, and this is reflected in the training I've undertaken for the profession in recent years.  Additionally, I value highly the opportunity as a teacher to contribute to my local and neighbouring communities, to help others to enhance their knowledge and appreciation of music and progress their skills, confidence and pleasure in being active participants in it.
