I love sharing my knowledge of music, and watching students try something new for the first time. Students and parents often comment that I am patient and kind.
I completed my Bachelor of Music Education at Newcastle University studying with Carmel Lutton. One of the highlights of this time was winning the Open Section of the National Australia Eisteddfod in 1988, performing a programme of Bach, Beethoven and Debussy. I also studied Alexander Technique as I could see the benefits of playing the piano with freedom from un-necessary muscular tension.
I currently play the piano for dancers sitting exams through the Royal Academy of Dance.
