Occupation Freelance Accordion Teacher
Introduction I have taught the piano accordion in Edinburgh, Scotland for over 20 years. I love teaching and now want to share my knowledge and experience with more students, especially those who can't find a teacher locally. I have been playing music since I was 4 years old (so that would be 46 years) starting with piano and moving on to woodwinds. I developed a keen interest in traditional music in my teens, took up the accordion in my 20s, and now concentrate on traditional Scots and Irish music. However, my tuition style includes a lot of help with technique and creative ways to practise, understanding the basics of music, improving the student's ear. Much more than just learning tune after tune! I enjoy performing, and have played in several successful folk and ceilidh bands over the years. However, my first love remains teaching. I aim to help students become the musician they want to be.
