- Mission statement -
I began teaching in 2003. Since then my teaching practice has grown from strength to strength to what it is today.
I Teach mostly from my home In north Cardiff where I teach all ages and all abilities in a fun and relaxed enviroment.
I have grades 8 in Acoustic guitar, drum kit, french horn and orchestral percussion. I am currently studying for my grade 8 trumpet.
I studied music for four years at Wells cathedral school on a Dfee scholarship
I have a degree in music from the Royal welsh college of music and drama.
I work professionaly throughout Cardiff as a live musician in a handfull of acts. I also work as a studio session musician with which I have worked on some wonderful projects, one of which i am proud to say was the 2012 olympic games soundtrack.
My lessons are tailored specifically to the students needs, which varies from person to person.
Taking exams is optional and not essential.
If you do wish to take exams I work with many leading examining boards such as, ABRSM, Trinity / guildhall, RGT and Rock school.
I can to this date boast a 100% pass rate in both practical and theory exams
Theory is also optional though I do strongly recomend it, especially for students at higher levels and therefore try to work it as naturally as possible into the lessons.
I also offer help and tuition with GCSE / ALEVEL music and music production.
Most importantly I like to keep lessons fun so the student is always looking forward to his / her next lesson.
