  • Piano
  • Singing & Music Theatre (from age 9 only)

  • Music Theory & Composition
  • Aural & Musicianship

Lessons take place at David’s home in Lichfield, and spaces are usually available both daytimes and evenings (availability does vary – please enquire). Children and adults are all welcome, as are beginners and also advanced pupils. David has run a successful and very popular teaching practice since 2001; currently pupils travel from as far afield as Sutton Coldfield, Stone, Tamworth and Burntwood. Taking exams is not compulsory – music is for life, not just for exams.

Lessons are charged at a competitive rate of £24 per hour. 30, 45 and 60 minute lessons are available. David provides a minimum of 40 lessons per year, with the option of extra lessons during holiday periods where required. David offers a 30 minute trial lesson without further commitment at the normal cost of £12. From thereon in, pupils and parents will be asked to sign his Terms and Conditions which can be read here.

As a teacher, David’s particular skills include:

  • The ability to patiently increase confidence, particularly in adult learners and teenagers;
  • Having faith in those who say ‘I can’t’ or who have little confidence in their abilities;
  • Being good humoured, and sensitive to individual personalities;
  • A concern that learning a musical instrument should be about more than a weekly individual lesson; in the past, both concerts and workshops have been hugely popular.

David is highly qualified and a Full Member of both the ISM and EPTA. He is fully insured for Public Liability.
