I offer ABRSM and Trinity Exams as a main.Over the last 9 months most students have decided to work with Trinity. This is due to the ease of application as well as the pieces are mixed with modern and classical.
LCM is part of University of London, this is where I undertook my study of music certification as well as Trinity.
NOTE: ABRSM, TRINITY, LCM are all scrutinised by UCAS. There is no one board better than the other as they both have to abide by the same rules and awards. Any teacher private or in a school system who says otherwise is completely wrong.
If your Son/Daughter has had a bad experience in learning with another tutor please do not think all teachers/tutors are the same or teach the same methods. Many of my pupils have come from other teachers and schools due to their methods of teaching. I am extremely passionate about my students learning well and enjoying their instrument into old age.
Personalized. Comprehensive. Fun.
Passing Exam Grades can help you get into University and College.
I do not teach under 5 yrs of age
Under 16yrs can be accompanied by an adult. Parents welcome to sit in lessons
I would advise you to BOOK your lessons now as my waiting list can be up to 2 years.
Serious students only should apply

I continue to write and compose music for enjoyment and I have recently been asked to compose the opening Music to a TV Series in the USA. So it is now all down to the studios if they want to take the TV Series on. It is also very expensive to do so. I do however have good contacts within the Music and TV/Film Industry.
I'm a former Resident Hotel Pianist and played at the Castle Hotel in Windsor daily as well as being headhunted to play for a well-known Bistro that was in St.Albans.
I am a family man and married to Anna and we have a wonderful son called Robert and a daughter called Ingrid, who is a teacher (Primary ). Robert will be 12 yrs old in August and enjoys listening to music and playing the keyboard too.
I'm a Scotsman who has lived in Slough for more than 25 years now. In fact, I have spent more time in England than I have in Scotland. It's a mixed bag in our home as Anna is from Lithuania and speaks English, Lithuanian and Russian.
Online lessons have become very successful over the past year and all students have managed to pass their exams. Distinctions, Merits, and Passes.
I will not be opening up in August/Sept due to the severity of Covid and to now finding out that those with 2 vaccines can still catch Covid. (19/7/21). I will continue with online lessons.
I also teach Film, TV, Pop and Stage Music. I also incorporate this into my students studies. Learning should be FUN!
"Notes are the blood of music and the heart of the music is the student.Without the heart there is no soul and no rhythm. Music becomes alive when the student understands that they are the heart of the music".
