I mix things the student can do with things he/she can't yet do. That way it's more enjoyable. I discover strengths and weaknesses so that I can provide lessons that develop a broader technic. We'll look at acuracy and tone with a view to gaining a quality of playing that the student is happy with. I'm not overly insistent on method, since some ways of doing things are more comfortable for different players. eg. I use a pick more with my left hand.

|Education & Training||I have associated board certificates in brass and piano but I don't teach to read music. I sang in the Halle choir, Manchester. I play both left and right handed and as such have overcome more learning difficulties than most.|
