For the last 10 years I’ve been a Primary School Music Teacher working with 440 children weekly in classes of 30 at a time. I work with all Key Stage groups at Primary – EYFS (Nursery and Reception), Key Stage 1 and 2 (up to Year 6). I plan and devise tailor-made curriculum. I manage a team of Instrumental Teachers and have grown our instrumental offer with a second guitar teacher and brass tutor (initially paid for along with brass instruments via a grant I won) and the most children learning instruments of any school in the borough of Hackney. I put on regular annual events such as concerts and a talent show, the year capped off with our original festival I created – BLastonbury – involving every child in the school.
I am an ICT Teacher, Apple and Microsoft Certified and have taught ICT at school and college level. I use Apple iPads and apps in my teaching and specialist educational apps such as Apple and Google Classroom.
I ran the School Eco-Committee having undertaken the Eco-Schools Programme training to deliver this. I am a Qualified First-Aider (of 16 years and Paediatric), trained in use of Epi-Pen and Child Safeguarding and a trained and certified Fire Marshall.
I am a Private Music Tutor with a wealth of successful results for students at GCSE, BTEC and A Level. I offer in-person and remote tuition using Zoom/GoogleDuo/MicrosoftTeams/WhatsApp/Facetime.
I teach Piano and Drum Kit and currently have some availability. I teach adults and children, beginners and returners. I have taught for many years and can again provide testimonials from satisfied parents and individual students. I offer in-person and remote tuition using Zoom/GoogleDuo/MicrosoftTeams/WhatsApp/Facetime.
I am a Pianist and Accordionist – playing at wedding receptions, networking and corporate events, birthdays, parties and what have you. Having background piano can really set off an event and provide that unique selling point that helps make it a memorable occasion. I provide my own professional portable piano as needed.
I DJ at club nights and for events, able to provide live percussion over the top of my sets also along with all equipment – decks, mixer, lights, PA.
I compose music to order for Television and Film, have specialised in Commercials Work and had international success having written for campaigns by Saatchi & Saatchi amongst others – my showreel is here on this website – click on the Instruments I Play section and have a look.

Outside events a speciality with a live address book of known, established and reputable contacts for all needed from bands and DJs to Hog Roasts, Circus Tents, Beer Tent, Security and Sanitation.
