I began teaching piano in 1993. I have taught people in a wide range of ages –  from 4 to 76!

I specialise in teaching older students now – from older teenagers upwards (I am a fully qualified post-16 / adult teacher).

I don’t currently offer lessons in the standard once-per-week format. Due to other commitments I can’t always guarantee the same time every week. Rather, I offer a longer lesson – 2 to 3 hours – arranged at intervals to suit – there are no commitments – you just book a lesson when you want one.

I specialise in teaching playing from memory, and overcoming technical difficulties, speed walls etc. My teaching is especially suitable for those who may have been playing for some time and feel that they have stopped making progress. Please get in touch for more details!

How much does it cost?

I charge £20 per hour for lessons in my home in East Manchester. If you book a 3 hour session, this is discounted to £50.

I have a high quality digital piano, and (for those interested in music technology, especially recording, mixing etc. – a fully equipped studio).
