My Background

I have a wide range of experience as a pianist as I have achieved grade 8 piano with distinction and am working towards my ABRSM Diploma in Piano Performance. I have played in a wide range of settings from rock, punk and pop bands in college to classical, romantic, baroque and modern solo piano. In college I have achieved HND Music at grade A level. I am also going to Ulster University Magee in 2021/22 for BMus.

My teaching style is to be respectful of the student's situation and to treat each student equally. Also, to provide as safe and secure a place where the student can learn as possible. I would furthermore like to pass my passion for music and knowledge of music onto my students. 

For performance my specialities include romantic and jazz music. I have a love for romantic music because of how much joy can be taken from expressing your emotions and for the jazz era because of how such warm textures and sounds can be made from the piano.

 

I play many instruments as I play the trombone and euphonium as well and both I have achieved with grade 5. I have played  in the Irvine and Dreghorn Brass Band where I played 1st trombone and play a vast range of genres from popular to classical music. Most recently we finished 4th in the Scottish Brass Band Association Championships 2nd division in March 2020.
