Teaching Style

Richard’s passion for music – both playing and teaching – is central to his approach, and his enthusiasm is passed on to all his students. He is equally at home teaching on an informal basis or preparing students for exams, from Grade 1 to Diploma level, aural, theory or Grade 6 and above. He welcomes students at all levels and his approach is tailored to meet the needs of the individual, whether beginners or ‘returners’, adults or children. Richard understands that adults especially have markedly different experiences and expectations of playing music, and his relaxed teaching style takes this into account. Richard is very approachable and relaxed and treats everyone as an individual. Playing music is, of course, beneficial to children’s development but equally worthwhile for adults as an escape from stressful jobs and busy routines. So don’t be afraid if you’re a beginner, or if you haven’t picked up a musical instrument since schooldays. Music is for everyone, and everyone, whatever their level, is welcome.
