Who am I?

I worked at A&C Hamilton’s at the age of 16, demonstrating and teaching keyboards and organs, then was trained and working with ‘Music For Families’ in Blackburn for 10 happy years. I also trained with the Yamaha Music School there, after gaining an associate diploma for organ playing from the Victoria College of Music.  I next attained a 2:1 BA Hons in performing arts from St. Martin’s College in Lancaster (now known as ‘The University of Cumbria‘). I passed grade 8 piano with ABRSM with merit.

I’ve worked as a ‘supporting artiste’ on various TV shows with people including Peter Kay and John Hannah. I’ve written, performed and recorded songs with voice coach/singer Kelly Sharp and I’m working towards an associate piano diploma with ABRSM.  I am the resident organist and choirmaster at St. Andrew’s Catholic Church, Cottam, and play for weddings and funerals.  I sing in the tenor section with the Lancaster Singers choir throughout the year and also work with soprano Angela Rubio on the publicity and marketing of the choir.  You can find our website here and our Facebook page here.

I also write and self-publish children’s fiction and am currently working towards a piano diploma.

How can I help you?

I created Legato Music School, Garstang, in 2014 with a vision to encourage the best music tuition and opportunities for people of all ages to develop their talents, learn new skills and gain new knowledge.  As a piano, keyboard and organ tutor I can offer lessons in these instruments up to grade 8 level.  I also teach music theory as part of the lessons, or as a separate lesson if you wish.  If you’d like to take exams then I will teach and guide you through the whole process, and if you want to play for performance, writing new music or simply for a hobby then I’ll be happy to take you on.  I take an open-minded approach in my teaching, which allows the right people to come to me for lessons.  Although younger people sometimes need discipline in order to achieve success, I always try to ensure that people find enjoyment in their learning, whatever their character, motivation or interests.  It can be hard in this day and age to focus on regular practice and long-term goals, but my students have proved to me time and again that it’s still very much a possibility!  Learning continues throughout life, and I want to help my students of all ages and abilities understand the richness and endlessly fascinating world of music, how they can appreciate it and play a part in it.

I’m a drummer/percussionist, an experienced performer and teacher, with many years of teaching both in schools and privately. I’ve performed and toured with various bands, across Britain, Europe and Asia, and recently supported the Human League.

How Can I Help You?

I have taught many successful students, and I work with the whole range – from very young beginners and beginning adults, up to the level of preparing students for grade 8 and ‘drum tech’ in London.  I cover most musical styles and interests for students, as my own musical tastes are far-ranging.
