I was educated at the Arts Educational School, Tring Park, where I studied Dance Drama and Music. After leaving school I continued my musical training locally. I taught Piano and Dance in Aylesbury then returned to my old school to work as a Pianist prior to moving to Cornwall, where I taught Piano in a number of different schools over the past 30 years.
My pupils ranged from beginners to post Grade 8, with many pupils from overseas. I have entered pupils for ABRSM exams with Piano, Jazz Piano and theory of music with 100% pass rate, most being high merits and distinctions.
I played for dance schools throughout Devon and Cornwall for examinations, Royal Ballet Associate Ballet Classes and Summer Schools for the Royal Academy of Dance and South West Ballet Seminars.
I also played for Truro High School Prep and Senior Choirs. The Prep choir were semi-finalists in Songs of Praise Junior Choir of the Year in 2013 and the Senior Choir , under the Direction of Frances Eagar travelled abroad with Concert tours , where I can say I have played all over Europe, New York, Hong Kong and South Africa.
I also work as a freelance dance pianist at Royal Academy of Dance, Battersea, Epsom and various dance schools throughout the South east of England for Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) and Imperial Society of the Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) Examinations.
I hold the Associate of London College of Music (ALCM) diploma for Performance and the diploma Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (dip ABRSM) for Teaching,
I also have an up to date CRB certificate.
