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.
At present I teach privately at Vinehall School, Robertsbridge. I also work as a freelance dance pianist at Royal Academy of Dance, Battersea; Laine Theatre Arts, 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.
