I teach a range of musical genres including pop, folk, classical, jazz and musical theatre to students of all ages. As a musician with dyslexia, I have a unique insight into alternative learning styles and the individual needs of my students. I teach students who want to sing for pleasure as well as those taking the Junior and Leaving Certificate exams and studying for exams with the ABRSM, RIAM, LCM and TCM.
I enjoy singing in a number of musical genres, particularly Folk and Classical. I sing in French, German, Italian, English, Russian, Latin, Spanish and Czech. I enjoy writing music at the piano as well as on guitar, ukulele and psaltery.
I have a deep interest in the history of music and singing (in all genres).
