About me

Accordion and piano teacher

I have been teaching accordion and piano for nearly 20 years and in that time I have taught students from five years old up to 75 years of age and from a wide range of backgrounds.

I believe that people learn best when they are playing music that appeals to them, so I tailor my lessons to you. I think it is important that a music teacher can help their students explore areas of music that the student find enjoyable and interesting.

I am equally happy teaching a wide range of styles from French Musette to Scottish dance and Irish folk music to the tangos of Astor Piazolla and the keyboard works of J.S. Bach.

I am able to teach at any level from absolute beginners, who have never held an accordion before to advanced level, where students wish to improve their skills.

I have a Degree in Music and I have reached Grade 8 in both accordion and piano.

Lessons are friendly and relaxed and I teach at a pace that is suited to the individual student. Everyone learns to play a musical instrument differently and together we will work out the best methods for you or your children.

I teach accordion and piano from my dedicated studio in Sale, Manchester.

Accordion performer
I am an experienced accordion performer and am available for a wide range of musical occasions, from private parties and celebrations to stage and TV work.

I have been performing on the accordion for nearly 30 years and have been a UK accordion championship prize-winner on more than one occasion in solo, duet and ensemble classes.

Want something a little different at your party? I can play a wide range of music for your event including French and German accordion music. Why not get in touch to find out more?
