Fully qualified teacher with 25 years experience teaching children, young people and adults ranging from Key Stage Two to higher education. An experienced Brass and Keyboard Peripatetic Teacher,  Classroom Teacher, Head of Department and Head Teacher.


Private lessons offered in Shrewsbury on all brass instruments, keyboard, GCSE music,  A level music and conducting.  My full time job is priority, therefore I fit private teaching around my school and freelance commitments. Although I endeavor to maintain a strict timetable sometimes lessons have to be re-arranged.
