I started playing the piano when I was 7 and later through a music scholarship at school, achieved Grade 8 (ABRSM) aged 16 and experienced many opportunities to perform and accompany.  I went on to gain the Advanced Certificate in Piano (ABRSM) and have successfully completed a Diploma in Piano Teaching (ABRSM).

After a 17 year career in adult education and family learning which involved working with adults, teenagers and families with very diverse needs, I have returned to my first love and now teach the piano privately.  I am a member of a professional development organisation for piano teachers called The Curious Piano Teachers

Over the years I have accompanied for a ballet class, local choirs and instrumentalists and am now a keen member of The Oxford Piano Group. You will also find me singing in the Three Rivers Community Choir and taking part in their concerts twice a year.

I am a full professional member of the European Piano Teachers Association and follow their safeguarding code of conduct.

My qualifications are:

Diploma in Piano Teaching (ABRSM)
Advanced Certificate in Piano (ABRSM)
Grade 8 Piano (ABRSM)
Post Graduate Certificate in Education (Post 16)
Level 4 Certificate in Teaching Learners with Dyslexia

I have an enhanced DBS certificate, hold public liability insurance and have completed a Child Protection in Education (Music) course.
