At a young age, I decided that I wanted to be a Musician. I did not believe that I could support myself with one instrument, so I set about training as a multi-instrumentalist. To this end, I have specialist knowledge of all styles of Singing, Guitar, Piano, Bass Guitar and Drum Kit.
I began teaching in 1993 and progressed to owning my own studio with a staff, assisting me. I found the demand for my teaching grew and decided to reduce my shop and employment duties, to focus publishing Teaching materials. I now teach from my home in Banchory (Aberdeenshire, Scotland), providing individual, person centred, lessons both in my studio and online. My Online Teaching has has served Students throughout the UK, France, Russia, the Middle East and Australia. I welcome Students from all Nations. I also provide elocution lessons to foreign business-people seeking to speak with British accents.
My Educational path has taken me through a Teaching Diploma, an Undergraduate, which included components in Kodaly and Classroom Teaching, and a Masters Degree.
I describe my teaching as, “Teaching classically, although not necessarily Classic”. Lessons are taught from a classical foundation – not limiting the growth of the student – exploring the music which currently interests the student.
