“My instrumental teaching methods require disciplined regular practice. I can teach methods of practising which will greatly enhance progress and development of good technique”.
Biography : A graduate of the Royal College of Music (1975-79), where he studied cello, composition and piano, winning the Bliss Prize in his final year. As a freelance cellist he worked with various orchestras in the UK, including shows in the West End. His music theatre work with ensembles such as the Lindsay Kemp Company took him on tours to Spain, Italy, Venezuela and the Shetland Islands.
As a professional musician he continues to accept freelance engagements, mainly for chamber music and solo concerts, but also for orchestral events.
As a professional educator he has specialised in teaching cello, recorder, composition and creative class music. Currently he is a peripatetic instrumental tutor in a number of schools in North London, and a professor of composition and musical awareness at the Junior Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
His approach to instrumental studies emphasizes the importance of a solid foundation of technique. On top of that, he teaches musicality and expression as intuitive qualities which can be developed through learning good phrasing, tempo control, tone development and improvisation skills.
He has taught in the U.K. for over 30 years.
Additional Information : Lessons are also given in Recorder.
