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.

  • LCM Music Teaching Diploma, DipLCM (TD)
    Aberdeen College (2012 – 2013)
  • NSPCC – Child Protection Awareness in Music
    NSPCC (2012)
  • HND Music
    Aberdeen College (2010 – 2012)

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.

Music Exams

Students of a certain level will be given the option of working on music exams. Although we will probably do the work for each level to help the student progress and have a clear idea of their skill level, sitting exams are entirely optional but certainly recommended!

I teach from two exam boards - students may decide which they prefer!

Students who prefer to study mostly classical styles of music will study from the London College of Music syllabus!

Students who prefer to study mostly popular styles of music will study from the Rockschool syllabus!
