Hello and Welcome…
My mission is to create and facilitate an environment where you have the opportunity to grow and experience all that music offers, no matter where you are on that journey, and no matter how you engage with music.
Studying for a teaching diploma can be a lonely, overwhelming and uncertain experience to battle through on your own. I offer a simple and flexible way to help you prepare for your teaching diploma, which centres around a sense of creativity and imagination.
Here in Lichfield, I offer a range of simple and flexible options to help students learn, all of which centre around creativity and imagination. Lessons can provide a gateway to a whole range of musical experiences, hours of enjoyment, and a lifetime’s fulfilment.
