I am a qualified Private Piano/Keyboard Tutor based in Banff, Aberdeenshire. I have been teaching private music lessons since 2012 and I accept both Children (5+) and Adults for lessons, if you are interested in lessons please get in touch here!
I studied Music at Aberdeen College for 3 years to gain my Higher National Diploma (HND) in Music and my London College of Music Teaching Diploma.

I like to teach a mix of Classical and Popular styles of music, prioritising on the genres of music that appeal to each student the most! Normally my teaching primarily focuses on Popular styles of music such as Pop, Rock, Blues, Film & Musical Theater etc.
I am a member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians (MISM), the UK's professional body for musicians and have gained Registered Private Teacher Status.
What does this mean?
It means that I have been reference checked and PVG checked for working with children.
I have agreed to adhere to the ISM Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy and the Code of Practice and Procedures. My qualifications have also been verified through the ISM.

Students of a certain level may be given the option of working on music exams. Music Exams are by no means mandatory but may be an option for those who wish to pursue them. Exams can be a decent indication of a students playing ability and an incentive for those who enjoy the achievements gained from assessment.
It's important to note that exams, whilst very popular in the UK, are not an essential part of music education and students who prefer not to sit exams will not be missing out or receiving any less of an education in music. The same results, often better, can be achieved simply with consistent practice and plenty of music to learn!
I am a member of a large, worldwide community of piano teachers. My membership allows me access to regular online training sessions and courses to help refine my current teaching skills whilst learning new skills & approaches.
