Group and Individual Tuition

I have presented workshops for tenor banjo and mandolin at Whitby Folk Week since 1991, taught at Hands On Music Weekends at Whitney and run workshops groups at many other festivals. With more than 30 years experience in playing and performance I have an insight into the needs of the student, and am aware of the obstacles to learning faced by students at all levels.

Beginners and improvers alike are guided through a programme of tuition tailored to their needs, using examples of traditional folk songs  and dance tunes,  to develop technique, repertoire, musical knowledge and confidence.

A user friendly system of teaching by ear, tablature and musical notation ensures success for all, regardless of age or ability.

Now based in West Lothian, I can offer individual and group tuition.
