What I / we help young people achieve

I believe we all deserve the chance to experience the gift of music in whatever capacity. Music can build communities, enrich our lives, cross barriers of race and culture and even heal us!
And learning an instrument is a great way to develop many skills including memory, imagination and teamwork.
I like to include singing and rhythm in all aspects of teaching because that is our fundamental way of understanding music before transferring it to our chosen instrument/s.
Everyone has different tastes in the music and the instruments we are drawn to.. I try as much as possible to motivate my students with what they naturally enjoy to play while broadening their horizons, so that the importance of practice becomes a labour of love.
I also like to encourage musical appreciation (listening) and performance opportunities for my pupils.
