Interview in Chase magazine



Last month I was interviewed about my creative and teaching practice by marketing and communications assistant for ROAR, Amy Forde.

I've had the pleasure of being interviewed for various things in the past, but this was rather more personal than I've been used to and Amy had a very natural manner and way of asking questions that I found really got me talking. I think Amy is clearly very skilled as she was able to create a succinct and sensible article from my disorganised and (perhaps) frenetic ramblings!

Many thanks, Amy for approaching me about this and for writing so many wonderful words.

You can read a PDF of the article or visit the Chase magazine website (pages 36-37).

Staying cool through the summer exam period




Here we are, at last: the final term before the summer break!

For many, this is a time of examinations: GCSEs, A-Levels and, of course, music examinations! As we know, with examinations comes hard work and often stress.

I'm currently busy preparing my dedicated and hardworking students for their upcoming exams and wanted to share some advice from the professional examiners at RSL Awards.

This short video gives some excellent advice on performing under pressure and also shows us that it's okay to feel nervous before an exam. Not only that, the video also gives some fantastic advice about picking the piece back up and recovering following mistakes!


Spring Holidays!

Cornwall Daffodils

Well done to all students this term for tackling some impressive music and showing real commitment to their instruments! You've all earned a well-deserved break, so enjoy the time off. Please try your best to keep up with the work you've been set, ready to show me your musical skills after the Spring holiday!

It's been a fantastic term and everyone has worked very hard, indeed! I'm now looking forward to taking a short break from teaching and enjoying some quiet time in the fresh countryside air.

See you all next term!
