My teaching career commenced in South Africa in 1980 which includes: individual piano lessons; theory of music, harmony and counterpoint; and music history and appreciation.  I have taught at various schools, music centres and  privately.  I immigrated to New Zealand in 2001 and I currently live in South Auckland.

My students have achieved success in various external piano examinations: Grades 1-8, including DipABRSM; and theory examinations Grades 1-6.

Teaching Info

I regard practical musical study as the most important vehicle to promote and encourage musical appreciation.   To achieve this, I emphasize the following:  tone production; articulation; shaping; style; technique; and the application of fundamental rudiments of music.

I also promote a teaching environment of professionalism, encouragement and friendliness to make the student feel appreciated and at ease.
